I am the first to admit I over-paint things.
Sometimes you just need to leave well enough alone.
Lately I have been loving a space that has a beautiful wood piece in it,
and especially drawn to burled pieces.
They ground the space, add a classic feel and add warmth.
You can also have a ton of whimsy or color going on
and it tones it all down like a cop at a house party.
Today I am undertaking a paint "reversal" of sorts.
I have this dresser that actually mine when I was a kid. I painted it gray a while ago, and underneath its oak-not that exciting. I like the lines and plan on using it in my boys room...
I have no plans of stripping it, instead I am going to faux grain it to look more like this:
I hope to have the tutorial for you by tomorrow or Wednesday,
and in reality I probably should have started with something like a Parson's table... but here goes.
If there are any other finishes you would like me to do tutorials on, just shout it out.
I have a bunch up my sleeve from my decorative painting years.
