Shop: Graphite Dresser and Candlestick Holders

stenciled dresserI’ve added a few items into the Shop.  The Farmhouse Stenciled Dresser in Graphite has been added to Furniture.  I love this piece and it currently is in my living room.  It is a very vintage piece and may actually be a true antique.  This piece was painted in Annie Sloan Graphite and Louis Blue was used for the stenciling.  The original gold pulls add such interest and charm.  The drawers open and close and have been lined in fresh blue striped paper.  Currently, I have this piece in my living room and it gives such charm in the corner!  It also would be great in a bedroom or even a kitchen to be used for extra storage.  Click HERE for more details.CONTINUE READING

Graphite and Gold Farmhouse Dresser

I found this little oak dresser about a month ago.  It is really very, very old and a true vintage find.  What was funny about it was the very fancy gold drawer pulls and keyholes on each drawer.  I have never seen such glam on an old oak piece!

I decided to have fun.  I first applied a coat of General Finishes Somerset Gold as a base color.  I then applied a coat of Annie Sloan Graphite and decided to break out my stencils.  I used Louis Blue with a pretty flower pattern.  The very gold pulls were toned down with a touch of Graphite and the gold accents tied it all together.  The whole piece was then heavily distressed to give it back its age and give it true farmhouse vibe.  I love how the distressing really highlights the old paneled sides.  The drawers were lined in blue striped paper and the whole piece was sealed with Artisan Enhancements clear topcoat sealer.
