The Davis Dresser - Custom Refinish Before & After

Before We have a new client who wanted a nice clean makeover on her bedroom dresser. This piece is a very simple dresser with vey clean lines.

After I think that this dresser has more straight lines than we have ever seen. And that is not a bad thing. We distressed the sharp edges and then stood back to determine if we should continue distressing on the flat surfaces. We went back and forth and yes lets do it and no I think we could run into a problem. Because there are no contours on the drawers or legs or edges we stopped there. We felt that distressing the flat surfaces would not look natural and spotty. And I rather like this clean look on this particular piece. We kept the original hardware which were nice heavy pewter knobs which already contributed to the nice polished look. As always we hope the Davis' are happy with their makeover and it will fit nicely in their bedroom!

Today has been beautiful weather and the kids are currently at the park. It sure feels like winter has extended its visit this year as we have had snow through this week so it was sure a pleasant surprise when the sun started peaking through the morning clouds and decided to stay for the day. We hope that spring is here to stay. I hope that you are all enjoying your weekend.

This one is nice. How many pieces do you paint a week? It seems like a lot since you both have full time jobs, right? Ann

This is beautiful Melanie! I love the clean lines and the simplicity of this piece. I love your cards tied to the knobs too. I was going to tell you that a while ago and I am not sure if I did or not. :)
