meet Stephen

I’ve been meaning to write a post on this dresser for awhile now…but with all of the craziness of opening the new shop it just seemed to take a hit on the priority list. Poor thing, he really is pretty cool.

Most of the pieces painted with chalk paint have a layered look that looks amazing. I love that look as well, but sometimes a certain piece just seems to call for something different.

That was the case with this old maple dresser. We’ve all seen his guy around before…if you are like me, your brother maybe even had a bunk bed in the same style. So maybe it was a little of me reminiscing or just the influence of my all-male household…but this dresser needed to be painted more masculine.

Here is a photo of the dresser before:
