Client Project: Pair of Dressers

A previous client recently purchased a pair of dressers to use as nightstands in her master bedroom.  She new exactly what she wanted, the dressers done in a semi gloss white finish with a gold accent that would feature the unique lines of the pieces.

Before



The original hardware was in pretty rough shape, but with some Bar Keepers Friend and a damp paper towel the results were perfect!


After


We chose to use Benjamin Moore's Advance line in the color Mayonnaise.  The white has a warmth to it that really works well with the gold/brass accents.  We were playing around with where to add the gold outline, and are very pleased with the result of choosing the inlay around the drawers




These dressers are going to work perfectly as nightstands with deep drawers and a durable, long lasting finish.

Thank you,
Shannon and Danielle

How to: Scalloped Feature Wall

WOW, what a difference this simple, inexpensive project has made!  
We have painted almost every wall in every room of our house, except this small hallway.  I was really looking to make a statement somewhere in the house, and I have played it safe with most of the rooms, this small space seemed perfect for a feature!

I was planning to do a more elaborate design, but after finding Classy Clutter's great tutorial my mind was changed and the project began.  

Supplies Needed:
Sharpie Oil Based Paint Pen - Gold Metallic
12in diameter template

I took a 12in diameter lid that I had in the cupboard and at the halfway mark, used a black sharpie to indicate on both edges the sides of the scallop.  I used painters tape to adhere a small level to the lid.  The level was only needed for the top row on each wall, but it also doubled as a handle for the rest of the project!  I also took a piece of 12"x12" craft paper and made another template for areas that couldn't accommodate the plastic lid (I had to make a few as the marker would wet the paper and on some areas transferred onto the wall).  My walls are 8ft+, the entire project took me 2 1/2 - 3 hours.

I LOVE this transformation!
