Shabby Chic Pink Chest Of Drawers..

We found this antique chest of drawers awhile back in bad shape....
So we repaired it off and on while waiting on 
pieces we were working on to dry...

Stripped it down...

primed it all...

This is the color I chose, a light soft pink,
called Powder Pink by Benjamin Moore.
A very subtle pink color.

Then painted it all in our professional flat finish.

I left all the cracks and dents on this one, I usually
seal that all up as shown in my 
previous posts.
I couldn't take that away with this one as it's 
old and wanted to stay with that look.

I distressed the edges...

smooth finish...

Added these beautiful ceramic teal flower knobs
with gold tips....

replaced all the inner bottom drawers...

we also replaced the back boards...

So beautiful!

French White Baby Blue Dresser..

One of our many wonderful repeat clients came to us
and picked another dresser we had
in our inventory.  Then she wanted us to custom paint it.

Here is the french provincial dresser she picked
from our inventory.  This is in it's factory finish pictured below.

We stripped it down to the bare wood,  this was a
very hard finish to get off.  Three thick layers, primer,
paint, glaze, and the sealer.  We take everything off, even the inner parts along
where the drawers sit...I've heard of people
using only soap and water or tsp to 
wipe off previous waxes.  Then they paint over that with primer.

We don't do that, we strip it down completely for our latex finish, 
no light sanding with a 220 sandpaper either.
It's hard work, but it's a durable finish.  That's why my clients come 
back to me.  Plus, it's a awesome finish at that. 
We do this with milk and sometimes chalk paint,
depending on the look we are asked to do.

Next,  we primed it, then painted
 it with our favorite latex paint.
Benjamin Moore. 

She wanted it distressed lightly on the edges...

I painted the inner surface of the drawers baby blue and distressed that some.

Handles left original....

That paint isn't going no where.  It was work just to distress
it, couldn't get to the wood the finish is so durable.
All my pieces I custom paint are like that though.

Just beautiful!

Buffet painted black then distressed...

One of my previous clients contacted us about
this buffet she had.  She wanted us to paint
it black with some distress on the edges.
Then, wanted the inside painted the color of her walls
in her dining room/hallway.

here is the before, a thick heavy factory finish....

we stripped it all down to the bare wood...

then painted it all black....

distressed the edges...
sprayed with my hvlp gun a polycrylic
to seal it all....

painted the inside a soft gray/blue color 
used the same color of her walls...

Looks really good, a lot better then the original finish!
