I haven’t had too much furniture on the go lately, but I did manage to finish up these two pieces. Waterfall has never been my favorite style, but I thought this dresser was cuter than some, what with that detailing along the bottom, so I decided to give it a try.
I can’t seem to find the before pictures, but the dresser was painted white and the nightstand was just regular brown stained wood. Neither were in horrible condition, but neither were in spectacular condition, either.
I used Cece Caldwells Chalk paint. Simply White on the drawers and the bodies were done in Memphis Blue. The handles were originally gold, but I “rub n buffed” them. First I did them in black, then I mixed some silver and black together and did a coat of that for a slightly more pewtery silver.
Isn’t that handle on the nightstand just too cute? It kind of looks like a ribbon.
This is what I need to start working on next. Whenever I feel motivated, that is. It’s a solid walnut piece made by Gibbard. Do you think it would be too horrible of me if I painted it? My husband thinks it would be a good idea. The drawer on the right needs repair and the mirror needs replacing. That’s probably why I’ve put off working on it so long. (And right now I don’t even feel like admitting how long I’ve had this thing…) See, if I write about it on here maybe I’ll actually get to it soon. That’s the hope anyways.
And… last but not least… have you seen the fantabulous new burlap at Joann’s yet? I’ve added a new runner to my etsy shop…
