Boldlicious

Jewel. Tones. Are. AWESOME. 


Goodbye bad, original, dated stain job. 


Welcome to 2012 dresser. 
Welcome.

Painted in Sherwin Williams oil based Rainstorm in high gloss. 

Hardware original. 

For more info look under "The Shop" tab at the top of the page.

PS. Remember my post on how to create a faux wall?
Same idea for the wall behind this dresser. :)

PPS I want to sincerely thank David from the Craft Corner for featuring my blog as one  of their "Best of the Web" features.

  7. This.transformation.is.awesome. I LOVE the color and the paint finish is beautiful. You did a spectacular job! And I love the contrast with the wall papered (?) wall behind it. Those colors are definitely trending right now!

  22. Simply amazing. the color is exquisite. How in the world did you decide on that color? I stand with 200 paint chips in my hand for most projects and then whimp out and choose the safest shade.

  28. Asking again because I forgot to check "notify me"! ism wondering if you bought that fabulous color in gallon or quart? I would like to paint more often in oil but don't want to buy expensive gallons. Having trouble finding a source of tintable quarts in gallon size.

    1. Hi! i got a tintable quart from Sherwin Williams, I think they're about $15-18 dollars. :) Then just tell them the color name and they can look it up and mix the color for you.
