Client Project: Entryway Dresser and Hardware Refinish

A current client recently purchased a new home, found this classic dresser and knew it would be perfect for their new entryway.  The stained finish and distressed hardware weren't the exact look they wanted, and the space was in need of a pop of color.


The entire dresser has been sprayed in a low sheen dark shade of blue and sealed by hand with wax to a satin finish.  All of the hardware is original, each pull was refinished in a beautiful metallic gold. The gold accents, new paint color and satin finish really accent the classic silhouette of the piece.






We are so happy with the results and hope that the family loves seeing the piece each time they enter their home.

Client Project: Restored Vintage Buffet


This gorgeous vintage Buffet came to Bloom. through a previous client referral and interestingly enough, was inspired by a previous piece that is actually part of our Purchase Locally Collection. You can learn more about that piece, a cool vintage waterfall dresser, here. The client loved the look of that particular piece so much that they approached Bloom. to apply the same technique on this unique vintage buffet.

Let's take a look at the Befores:




This piece required a bit of repair work, including re-applying a few pieces of moulding and securing the top of the buffet to the base. In keeping with the theme of the waterfall dresser, the shell of the buffet was thoroughly cleaned and then sprayed in a matte, water-based navy blue paint via HVLP sprayer. The drawer and cabinet door fronts were sanded down and re-stained in a deep espresso. The entire piece was then finished in a clear wax. New, glass hardware accented the doors nicely while the drawer hardware was restored to it's original luster and sealed in a clear coat of enamel. The end result is eclectic charm:

Feature for Sale

As you know, we have been loving the high gloss look of Benjamin Moore's Advance.  We've used it both on the gorgeous Client Project:Dining Table Refinish and on a Full Size Bed Frame that is currently for sale.  

The product is amazing to work with and we couldn't wait to use it in another color. When a Mid Century Modern Buffet found it's way into our stock we knew it was perfect for the project! 


 The clean lines of the piece are really accented by the high gloss finish, and the original brass hardware finish it off perfectly.





Nine drawers, original brass hardware, high gloss gray finish, 72"L x 18"W x 30 1/2"H.
