I love this colour combo. I confess, I do it a lot. Eeek. Its hard to always be creative when something is so popular and you love it too! The colour is so sophisticated and warm, and as a bonus, it has good coverage.
I picked this piece up at a really good price because the drawers were sticky. 'no, problem' I thought, 'easy fix'. Bah. How wrong a girl can be. I spent hours Hours HOURS running the orbital over drawer edges sanding and plaining away to get things to fit and run smoothly. I suspect its fair to say that I spent more time fixing the drawers than actually painting the piece.
I actually almost forget the painting part, because I am still shuddering (literally and figuratively) from all the sanding. I do remember that I was able to detach the legs and bottom trim and paint them separately, I used the critter sprayer to paint the blue, and the gold was done with Krylon Spray paint.
I topped the piece with satin sheen polyurethane.
Hardware got a dose of rub-n-buff in antique gold.
And the before (minus the legs which were off prancing around somewhere).
