Painted, Distressed, Glazed Dresser & End Tables






It is ridiculously cold again.  Ugh!  I am ready to migrate farther South.  My productivity depends on the weather and not being able to get as much done as I would like, is irritating.  Plus, I like being outside, working on pieces in the driveway and be able to open the shop up but I can't do that with these ridiculous temperatures and north wind.  Yikes.  This really has been one of the coldest winters I can remember.  It hasn't let up and I think I might be going crazy from it,  Is that possible?  Going crazy from cold weather?

Even with the bad weather the past few weeks, I was able to stay on schedule with the next project.  A beautiful Ethan Allen dresser and end tables were brought to me for a face lift.  The pieces were in great condition and were pretty as is, but looked a little dated.  The client wanted them refinished to look like my grandmother's dresser that I use as a buffet.  These were perfect for this type of transformation.  The dresser and end tables have beautiful details and edges for the glaze to highlight.  I love this makeover.

They are so pretty!  Next up on my schedule is a Duncan Phyfe buffet.  The client and I have been looking for this piece for months and she finally found one.  I can't wait to get started on it's makeover.

Sorry for the lack of blog posts but the cold and rain hurts my productivity.  I have been working on a few inside projects but I am not ready to show them to y'all.  I hope everyone has a great weekend.
