EXTREME MAKEOVERS!

I've been posting periodically about my furniture scores such as the Dixie campaign dresser, Henry Link pagoda cabinet and the Thomasville bedroom set.  Some pieces have already been snatched up by clients, some pieces are staying with me and some will be for sale.  Here are a few before and after shots.  I apologize for the quality of the after shots.  All inventory is currently loaded in my garage.  I will showcase better photos later once the pieces are in their final homes. 
 
The campaign dresser went Kelly Green for a client's living room.  I used the exact color that designer Vanessa De Vargas used on her campaign chests featured in Lonny.  It really looks amazing and is going to be a statement piece for the room.

For the Henry Link pagoda chest and faux bamboo mirror, I decided to go Hermes Orange.

For the Thomasville dresser, nightstand and two twin headboards I went black.

All of these pieces have been professionally finished using a 3 step conversion varnish process.  The result is amazing.  All pieces look like they just stepped off the showroom floor.  What do you think?

  1. OMG! Love the colors you chose! They really bring the pieces from dated to hot and current. Would love to have that green dresser. Green has never been one of my favorite colors but I am beginning to really like it. What beautiful work your painter does. Can't wait to see what is next.

  2. Love the green and orange! My two favorite colors, but I'm always afraid to go there.

  3. What a great look! Where does one get a 3 step conversion varnish process done?

  4. It all looks fab! I especially love the orange bamboo side table. Wow wow wow. Professional is the way to go with these things. Self spray painting furniture usually drips (and takes a million coats and cans) and hand painting leaves brush strokes. This is so much more polished!

  5. Wow, wow, wow! Everything looks amazing! Did you just color match a Hermes box? I'm an orange girl but I'm loving the black as well!

  6. Of course, they all look amazing, but you know I love the black (duh)! I'd say your painter did a fabulous job. Your clients are going to be thrilled with these pieces, and I might have to inquire after the black dresser!
