Winston Part 2

Remember the 1st Winston?


Well turns out he's got a twin.




and here's the before


I was thrilled when a sweet client approached me about doing another Winston.

I love his vibrant colors against the stain and I was SO happy when she wanted the double rings in the top drawers. I love the little bit of elegant quirkiness it adds. 

After doing two of these I am more determined to make one for our home.
Winston needs to be a triplet. :)

  11. Hi Julia!

    I second Karen's comment! I'm such a dork, I didn't even catch the double rings the first time 'cuz I was looking at everything as a whole. Smart idea, especially when you don't want to move extg. holes from drawer pulls.

    Really cool pieces!

  13. This is so classy. I love it. I never seem to find these dressers. I always find crappy construction that smells like mold. Oh well, you have inspired me to keep looking!
