I was recently asked to custom paint two pieces for a new home office. I love the furniture my client selected, which have been in my inventory for some time. The armoire, which will be used for storage, has eye catching details while the french provincial vanity, to be used as a desk, has wonderful lines. She wanted both pieces painted in a metallic purple, created by combining an eggplant color with silver metallic paint.
Painted in metallic silver and glazed, the armoire’s embellishments create a sense of glamour. I discovered these knobs a few years ago and they are perfect with the armoire and vanity.
The entire armoire is glazed in a mixture of black latex and gold metallic paint.
My client will add shelves to the armoire, expanding its storage capacity.

The drawer pulls were converted to knobs.
My client wanted the desk top to be painted black and then distressed to show the metallic purple and the various accent colors underneath.
The original gold detail on the piece was enhanced.
I really enjoy when my client’s expand my palette horizon. Purple metallic is a unique choice but it works wonderfully!
