White and Gray Dresser

Hello –

I have clearly taken a break from writing here for a bit.  Just like everyone, lots of busyness, but I had some time today, so here I am.  I have been very busy with projects and a lot of custom pieces lately.  I always enjoy those because it is fun to come up with a workable plan with clients.  I am often stretched by my client’s ideas and I like that — it helps to make me better.

The piece below is a custom dresser I did for a little girl’s room.  It started with a piece that I picked up at a local thrift shop.    The lines on this piece are very different  – I especially love the curved drawers in the middle.  They are so unique and add a little feminine detail.

The client I was working with wanted to have the dresser white with a little bit of gray accents.  We went back and forward on where the gray accents would be best and decided on a few spots on the four drawers to the left and right of the middle rounded drawers.

The accents were really fun to do.  I started out taping off the spaces I was going to paint gray, but quickly realized that it was easier to just paint these areas by hand.  After doing a few of the accents, I also decided that a few more were necessary to balance the piece out.  Below is what came out.

I was really happy with how it turned out and the client was as well.  It is just beautiful and just the right dresser for a girl’s room.
