"This Dixie 5-Drawer Dresser has been given my new specialty finish I’m calling 'Brick Beauty.' Started with a base coat of General Finishes Lamp Black, and a top coat of Brick Red Milk Paint with some distressing here and there to show the black through and give a rustic look. Above that I added Glaze Effects, Red Sienna, to add just a lil' something extra, adding to the overall 'Brick Beauty' look. The pulls and knobs have been given a rich black look to finish off this piece and tie it...
"Just in time for Valentine's Day! Painted in Brick Red with Van Dyke Brown Glaze on top, this French Provincial chest turned out perfect! A new top was added to replace the original damaged top. I love the rustic look it gives it!"
"Brick Red is such a popular color, and it was the perfect color for the style of this shelf. Our customer chose to paint the inside Linen so everything displayed would pop against the lighter color instead of sinking into dark shadows. We distressed the cabinet to give it a little more aged character and top coated it all in satin High Performance Topcoat." - Reblessed, LLC
"Building a piece of furniture is one of the most rawest forms of creativity. You get to create something straight from your mind. These doors were found items that were discovered on one of our shopping outtings and were what inspired Don to make this cabinet. He loved every moment of this process and is always so proud when people complement it. It is always the crowning glory in any vignette we create."
