So as I have mentioned previously, I am having a love affair with a particular shade of deep blue combined with gold hardware. In fact, I currently have two dressers in the shop being fitted out with the exact look. I just love it, simply love it. I realize it isn't the most creative to keep recreating the same look over and over again. But, well, I don't really have an excuse.
This beauty here was such a good find. I paid more for her than I usually would because I just loved that oversized hardware. I picked her up in our November 'Polar-Vortex' blizzard and nearly skidded off the road getting her home.
I actually finished her about a month and a bit ago, I am a little behind on blogging about some of my posts. Im proud to say she will be gracing the set of an upcoming MARILYN MONROE film being shot in Toronto. I will definitely be watching that film (I think its release date is 2016) to see if I can catch a glimpse of my handiwork. Pretty exciting for ol' Rae Bond!
I had Mr. Chuckles help me add the legs custom to give the grandeur of extra height. I used rub n buff on her hardware, it came out so beautifully. The piece itself was finished in Dulux Diamond with POP and finished with Satin sheen polyurethane. I think its lovely that the oak grain is still visible.
I toyed with the idea of accenting some of the raised detailing with gold as well, but I was concerned that it would compete with the beauty of the hardware so I just let it be.
And the before
