My new RANT!

You can LOVE the farmhouse vibe…..and still embrace COLOR!

Just look at this rich teal dresser against the old barnwood in this photo!  They are RICH and RAW….HIGH and LOW…..RUSTIC and GLAM….milk and cookies….bacon and eggs!  You get it!

Mix it up people!!!!  Keep it interesting!

This post is meant to be a drool-worthy photo post!  This piece was featured online and in print…which means, it has received a TON of exposure. Because of this….. I have been asked many times what products I used on this teal dresser and what steps I took.  And because I LOVE my peeps…I’ve answered every single time!  And then duh!  Why not just write a tutorial about the process…and make it available to everyone!

You can purchase the tutorial here where I provide you with a step-by-step video, print out instructions and complete supply list!

This dresser is an exquisite piece with or without paint….but it was worn and weathered and water logged from years of abuse!  You can see in the photo below that the drawers have swelled and do not even function properly anymore.

That did not matter to me!  I knew I wanted this as a feature piece in my home…and it needed to reflect my love of color!

I am so pleased with the outcome…and have no doubt I will keep it front and center in my home for years!

I hope you find the tutorial on this color process helpful!  Search out a piece that has gorgeous carvings, several drawers….and speaks to you!  Then highlight and color-wash the heck out of it….just like I show you in the tutorial video!

I’d love for you to follow me on Instagram, Facebook or YouTube to see all my creations first!! And as always, sign up to get my blog newsletter here to see more of my fancy furniture creations, unique art designs, room makeovers and insight into my design process!

    Beautiful! As a VERY artistically challenged DIYer I am inspired. (You may get angry emails from my loved ones- the reciepeant of my furniture) I must that you for your directions, very purposeful and easy to understand.
    My next project is a maple nightstand with a wood like laminate top. I wanted to decorate decopouge (sp?) the top with an antique map of the stars and paint the rest. Do you have any ideas or suggestions?
    Thank you, my new hero!
    Sincerely,
    Christy
