Can You Stand One More Black & Gray Ombré?

In between sales of the black and gray ombré dressers, I get a ton of emails asking for them. They sell so fast, that I have to keep painting this style. You, as my reader, are probably as tired as I am, but you gotta give the people what they want!

I picked up this awesome retro sixties-ish dresser and just fell in love with it. Occasionally, I run across pieces that I like, that I know are classic lines and would sell quickly and then I run across pieces that I wished that I could keep. Have I told you how stuffed FULL my house is? And somewhere down the road, I am thinking of possibly moving to Europe and then what the hell am I supposed to do with all of this stuff in my house?

Anyway, this is one of those pieces I wished I could keep and build a whole suite around. I love the clean lines and the recessed drawers. I even loved the original feet… enough to replace them so I could use them later on something! LOL

Anyway, here is a quick before and after:

Retro Before&After

It was the usual sanding and fill of the sore spots, priming and then painting. Like I said, I took off the feet and replaced with this more modern squarish feet on the front and just some standard feet on the back (that no one ever sees or cares about).

I got a lot of stuff done yesterday, I am close to having four more pieces done. Oh and started yet another doll bed design. And finished up another 40 doll clothes hangers. I should stop writing and start getting stuff done. I like to watch one movie in the morning and sift through Craigslist and email and puruse the job boards and then get to work. It is so cold and gray and rainy that I am having a hard time getting motivated. Now just where did I put that motivation?

Thanks for dropping by, as always. And Happy Crafting Y’All!
