The photo below shows the dresser in its original finish. It was the typical yellowed french provincial finish that just doesn’t work for most home decor today. I actually did a Facebook Live where I discussed the need to prime before painting with most red paints.

I used Dixie Belle Paint‘s Honky Tonk Red….and as you can see below….it has amazing coverage with just one coat…even on that top left drawer were there was NO primer used! It is the BEST red paint I have ever used….and hey…..the name of the paint speaks to this Texas girl! You can watch the live video HERE on You Tube if you you’d like to see the proof in action!

My client specifically asked for this exact painting style. She loved a dresser that I had painted last year….in this exact style….but in a different color. I’ve posted them here in a side by side.

Its always amazing to me how just the change of ONE color can alter the feel and look of a piece so greatly!! Which one speaks to you more??

 

I love when my shop is full of color!!! It seems to happen in waves! Sometimes everything I’m working on is gray….or comes in a wave of black or all white…..and then BAM! A load of COLOR orders come through and my spirit just soars! I had to grab that photo below just to give you an idea of my view when I walk into my shop this past week! Who wouldn’t be happy???

    I’m glad you do something different.. This, WHITE farmhouse trend is getting old … Everybody copy’s each other. What one has it; the other gets it …
    I believe your house or your home should reflect yourself & the way you live… But, your own spin on thing not what all the bloggers do & other sources on the web .. ?. The vanity dresser… Nice ? heart ❤️ canvas too.
