Bird’s Egg Blue Hutch

“Here is the piece before…my husband bought it for me as an early birthday gift, after I found it at one of our local antique/thrift stores.  It was marked down from $180 to $90, and it is a solid piece from the 1930s.  The paint job was terrible – big globs of paint and wood showing through in some areas.  It was a minty green color.  I sanded it (forevah!), then painted it with 2 coats of Behr Paint and Primer in One in Bird’s Egg (which is a Benjamin Moore color).   I spray painted the hardware with Rustoleum Satin Nickel”

“When a customer brought me her family’s antique dresser, I was so excited to paint it! I absolutely love the antique keyholes. I can honestly say that I love all of the different styles of furniture that I do but I have a special place in my heart for this style of antique dresser, especially with the original hardware stained in antique gold and the piece mild to medium distressed. This was a really fun project! See her other custom furniture refinishing projects here”

“The best decorating advice I have ever received was not from a big name designer, magazine, or book, but someone who I found was always right. That someone was my mom.  She was passionate about making a house a home and I remember more than once hearing her say – Don’t decorate a room all at once.  Let it evolve.  You will be so much happier and will  enjoy the room for many years to come.”

“When I put the original pulls back on after painting, they were too dark and the styling was too traditional.  I loved the label pulls that were on the library file drawers I recently redid in my studioffice.  I went in search to find something similar to use on the sideboard.  I found these brass label and drawer pulls in the Van Dykes Restorers catalog after seeing them on Pinterest on a dresser that Destiny from A Place For Us made over. I wanted un-lacquered brass, but they were sold out until July. I didn’t want to wait that long, so I opted for the bright brass and aged them myself to tone the brass down down a bit.”
