This steamer trunk belongs to my clients grandmother and has been past down the generations. She wanted to give her heirloom a makeover to match her home and style.
Refinishing the inside in a brown stain using Wood Classics Weathered Teak and sealing will keep the inside healthy for more years to come. I blended three colors for the body to create a bohemian technique. I used Sherwin-Williams Open Air, Lakeshore and Oceanside. Once completed I glazed her in a mixture of both Tricorn Black and Oceanside for a darker aged blue. Highlighting a few spots with Open Air on the base and Victorian Arch Top really popped this beauty out!
“Steady as a clock, busy as a bee, and cheerful as a cricket” -Martha Washington. This detailed dresser by Bassett Furniture is refinished in Sherwin-Williams Useful Grey and blended with white. Distressed for a farmhouse charm and glazed in brown to pop out all the nooks and crannies! Original hardware revamped in Oil Rubbed Bronze.
This lovely lady was in my inventory and I painted her up how I saw fit. First Dibs Email went out on Saturday and she sold within minutes!
I am so excited to share this piece built by Link-Taylor! I had it available for customization over at In the Studio and a returning client got her hands on her. When we were discussing ideas I was so thrilled to do something bright, bold and bohemian! This piece will be in her art studio as the center of attention!
She chose the colors Sherwin-Williams Jamaica Bay, Brave Purple and Solaria. I blended the blue and purple in different areas and added yellow as an accent color. Next, I glazed her in brown to bring all these brilliant colors together for a flawless look. Lastly, adding a mix and match of gorgeous knobs from Hobby Lobby to complete her bohemian style.
I really enjoyed this process, its very freeing and forgiving. With no rules, anything goes and I was able to just put myself out there artistically. I hope you love her as much as my client and myself do!
This custom piece turned out exactly how I had planned. Blending three colors using Sherwin-Williams Dovetail, Maga Greige and Black Fox. Leaving the inside of the unit in Dovetail. Glazing the outside in Tricorn Black for an aged look. Revamping the original hardware in Oil Rubbed Bronze.
