Client projects have overtaken me lately. I’m not complaining just trying to give an explanation for my absence and sporadic-ness.
Well honestly I guess I’m always a little sporadic. Anyway you get the idea. Moving onto todays project….
French Provincial furniture is one of my all time favorites to transform.
It’s often so dated when I start out on it that there’s no where to go but up. As was the case with this dresser.
or this hutch~
But for this dresser my client wanted something completely unexpected.
Her daughter was going for a Parisian theme and wanted the dresser to be black with gold accents.
I painted the entire piece using General Finishes Lamp Black
and then highlighted the edges and hardware with Baroque Gold Guilders Paste.
I love using this stuff! It’s super fun to work with.
A little tip…a little goes a long way!
Here’s the finished dresser and nightstand.
What a transformation….
