2015 in Review

These are some of my favourite pieces from this past year.  I like variety and I like to experiment with different colours and techniques.  I have discovered that I enjoy stripping and refinishing wood almost as much as painting it; I get immense satisfaction from the process.

  1. A walnut desk painted in AS Coco with a white wash.  I loved the bookmatched veneer on the top of this desk.

2. An antique dresser painted in AS Old Ochre with Graphite dry brushed on the drawers and a Burgundy interior.

  1. Great pieces! Love all of the gray. It’s might favorite color for furntiure makeovers. That sidebar is amazing and I love the arrow hardware. Thanks for sharing at The Creative Circle.
