“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!
This 1914 White Beauty Hoosier Cabinet has been in my clients family for over 100 years and has seen better days. They wanted this antique beauty to have some parts restored, like the flour sifter, hardware, metal spice holder, and side metal mounts. The original wood body to be refinished in white.
As I started to strip this gal I found 4 separate paint colors from throughout her life time. Not only was this paint extremely hard to remove but each layer was lead paint. Proper removal required the utmost safety precautions one must do. This gal took me a long time to complete.
Once the paint was removed she was looking rather good in her natural state! I replaced the backing on the top section as the original one had a few cracks and started to fall apart making her less sturdy.
The hardware was black and grimy, but once stripped, soaked and clean I found engraving marker’s and the original color to be nickel! The hinges and knobs were stained from time so I revamped them in nickel to give it a new fresh look.
Priming was the next step!
Once primed, I painted everything in Sherwin-Williams Greek Villa and did a light glaze using Sherwin-Williams Cadet, a soft blue grey to help tie in the porcelain enamel top. Finishing her off with adding nickel casters, like how she had before- once upon a time ago.
This project took time, patience and lots of stripper, sand paper and elbow grease. There was blood, sweat and tears, but we don’t need to go there. I am so happy with how she turned out and even more grateful to add her to my portfolio!
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.
Alright! Last dresser for my clients room! This dresser is a completely different style and make. She received it from a family member and it works for them. Painting it to match, and adding the same hardware is going to make it look like its part of the set!
