I was asked to revamp an entire bedroom set for a young lady who attends my son’s high school and what a fun project it has been.  The first piece I tackled was the substantial dresser, which is hefty in weight as well.  I immediately suggested that they consider glazing this piece due to its many details.

I especially loved the drawer pulls with the funky scrolls.  This dresser and the rest of the bedroom set had been stored in my client’s basement for many years.  I’m so glad that they opted to give these pieces new life and purpose.

My teenage client and her parents selected a piece of fabric to recover a vanity stool, which is also part of this bedroom set.  They decided to use the bold teal color, making the dresser the signature piece in her room.

I’ve begun using Benjamin Moore’s Advance Paint regularly since it’s the closest you can get to oil while still being a latex paint.  It glides on easily and is so much easier to glaze than chalk paint.  I love how the glazing sets off the details on this drawer.

In the coming days, you’ll see the vanity and stool, headboard and side table that make up this bedroom set.  I can’t wait to see how it all looks in my client’s bedroom.
