French Provincial

This may be my favorite color yet!  It's painted Paris Grey with a wash of Graphite.  I saw the technique at Maison Decor and thought it was beautiful.  So I gave it a try and this was the result.

I did the same thing with the mirror frame.  The mirror itself is 1/4" thick and the frame is solid wood.  It weighs a ton!  I painted the hardware black and waxed the dresser with clear wax.  It would be beautiful in any room of the house.

Bold Blue

I used AS Aubusson Blue on this one.  It's nice and bold and I love it!  I sanded the top down to sand all the scratches out and used dark wax on it.  The size of this piece makes it really versatile.  It would look great in an entryway, bedroom, as a buffet, or even a changing table in a nursery.
