Where The Customer is King :-)

Last week I had finished a piece in my signature style of ombré  – beautiful hues of blue – when a buyer who had come to look at a piece done in black and gray (the one next to it) caught site of it.

He wanted the blue one, but in black and gray. I would have to repaint it. The one thing that I have learned about myself is that I love doing the work, just not a fan of re-doing the work. Ha.

But when he pulled a crisp hundred dollar bill and handed to me, I knew he was serious. So I was too! I mean, after all, the main reason in finding the dressers and painting them was to earn money while I am between contracts! So who was I to say no?

It was easy, all the pre-work had already been done. So it was just a matter of bringing it in, removing the hardware and repainting everything. And then putting the hardware back on. The black and grays went on nicely over the blues, two solid coats and a couple of days of curing time. And viola!, just as pretty as you please.

So, here it is, Before, After and After:
