Dresser Gone Glam!

Well, hello beautiful!  That's what I was saying to this dresser/buffet that I finished this afternoon.  I had to run errands and work my booth spaces this morning playing catch up from the lack of work that I did last week with my company in town.  I also signed on for a new booth space at a brand new antique/unique furniture market that is being opened by a great friend of mine in Fort Walton Beach....Plethora.  It's located just off of Carson which is off of Walter Martin near the Uptown Station.  They open this weekend, so be sure to check it out!!

Then it was home to do some house work and get to painting.  Tonight I've been keeping one of my little neighbor girls, so I'm just now fitting in time to post.  This buffet/dresser is for a client that I work with on a regular basis.  It is being transformed to go into a pink and purple glamorous bedroom.  This piece has great french style lines and started out as a basic black.

 I started by spraying the inside silver to give it that glamorous pop of color on the inside.
 The entire piece was sanded with 120 grit paper and primed with very light lavender.  It then received two coats of Lingering Lavender by Benjamin Moore.  This is a white with a hint of lavender in it.  The original hardware was used, but was spray painted a metallic silver.
Next up was just putting it all back together.  The silver adds a perfect pop of bling.
 Here's the final product:
This piece certainly look different that what it started with.  I'm happy with it and I sure hope my customer is too once it gets delivered tomorrow.
