Argyle Buffet

This buffet had raised plaster flowers across the doors. I sanded the doors down flat, painted the base in old ochre and designed the argyle in grey and tangerine. I was going to distress but it took away from the design because there are lots of curves and crevices. My clients wanted a more modern look so solid, I felt was a way to give it a streamlined look.

Prince Harrison Collection

My sweet client asked me to create a look for furniture to go in her baby’s nursery. She knew she wanted grey and she gave me creative freedom to design a finish. The furniture was in family storage for years, truly antique pieces. They were a pale yellow color with lots of age and wear. I used a mix of greys to create a muted look with some slight distressing. Finished in wax.

Queen of Green Bombay Desk

This was a dark finished Bombay desk that I picked up for a dime. I love this desk and it sits in my office now for my husband to use:) I figured I would let him have it…ha! I finished it in a mix of bamboo and Antibes like color green with metallic tiger’s eye gold trim and distressing. Finished with clear and dark wax.

It was up at a home decor shop where I showcase my furniture, for some time. My husband wanted it but agreed to try to sell it first. I guess he put the Gris Gris on it because it never sold. So it must have been meant to come back home with us 🙂

Custom Painted French Inspired Bureau

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I had this bureau for awhile and it was finished in a tan mix of colors with flowery designs. I probably painted this 4 different colors before deciding on this finish. But that is the beauty with paint, you can just re-paint if you do not like the results. I wanted the cabinet doors to have something a little extra. I used venetian plaster and created a textured stencil designs on the doors. I glazed them with blues and gold. The legs at the bottom have crackle added to give some dimension to the colors. I waxed and distressed, waxed and distressed with multi colors of turquoise, St. Louis Blue and Old White. Added dark wax in some areas and gold metallic on the trim. ImageImageImageImage
