this week, i completed two small furniture projects, commissioned by a client. she had saved this magazine clipping, and had me paint this nightstand that she's had for years to resemble the piece in the magazine...
here it is before i painted it (after i removed the drawers!):
and, here is the magazine clipping (notice the dresser that is to the right in the photo):
here is my result:
i painted the whole thing a distressed off-white, then re-stained the top in a dark "java" stain, to resemble the "French" look of the piece in the photo! i also scuffed up the hardware, and did a distressed blue finish on it, to give it more of the country look...
fits in the room much better now!
this is the same client that i did this piece for about a month ago:
this dresser and the nightstand were both parts of an old set...aren't they so much better painted? i love them now! :)
if you live in the atlanta, georgia, area, and are interested in having furniture or walls painted, please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
