Here is the final bedroom piece that I recently completed for my teenage client (who’s adorable). In the middle of this project, I was gone five weekends in a row as well as a number of work days, but my client and her parents were understanding and patient. What dream clients!
Originally we were going to paint this piece off-white since there is a lot of color with the teal dresser, eggplant vanity and teal and off-white bed frame. My client’s mother was concerned that the off-white would look lost, which was an excellent point. The fun vanity stool fabric has lots of colors to choose from but lime green was the most playful. (The actual color didn’t reproduce well in these photos).
Like the other bedroom set pieces, I glazed this piece to bring out the wonderful details. I especially love the grills in the cabinet doors, which are original as are the cabinet door knobs. The drawer knob matches the middle drawer knobs on the teal dresser.
I know I took before photos of these pieces, but darn if I can’t find them, so you only get the after pictures.
I love older wood pieces like these three. It was fun to breath new life into them.
This wonderful old tool box will be used by my client’s bed for books, magazines and probably a few other things as well. The wood on the handle and inside of the tool box received an application of Danish Oil in Natural to give it a boost.
This fun piece will be used as a jewelry box and will reside on top of the teal dresser, which will look fabulous. My client choose a fun orange chenille bed spread, which this piece should play off well.
This is the only piece that isn’t part of the bedroom set makeover. My client’s mother had this piece painted although I’m not sure where in the house she’s going to put it to work.
Just loved working on this project with this lovely family.
