It’s been a long time, but I finally painted another red piece…
…and it makes me wonder why I don’t do it more often! This piece really wears red well.
Here is how it started…
It wasn’t bad at all, but the finish was a little tired and a refresh felt in order.
The color is definitely an attention-grabber, but it’s the hardware that is the real star of this piece and I love how the red sets it off.
If you look closely, you’ll notice that one of the handles was replaced at some point, but I sort of like the show of ingenuity. That’s something my Opa would’ve done. Mixed this piece with that to fix a broken handle.
I had this vintage French flag in my prop stash for a while, waiting for the right piece to show it off.
Yes, I was humming songs from Les Miserables while I was hanging it. “Do you hear the people sing? Singing the songs of angry men. They are the music of a people…”
Since the dresser and the flag were so bold, I styled it simply with a glass jar and some branches from my snowball bush.
This dresser is for sale at the studio ($285). Send me an e-mail if you’re interested or to get more details (email@example.com).
