Broyhill Dresser

I believe this was another tag on FB.  I'm always so grateful somebody thinks of me when they see an ugly piece of furniture. ;)  I actually get that a lot...."I was thinking about you the other day...." Lol!  

It's a Broyhill, so it's a nice piece in great condition, but, once again, just so heavy and dated looking.  I was going to do it in red but it pre-sold and my client and I decided a charcoal gray would look beautiful in her guest bedroom. 



Even though it's still dark, it looks so much more modern.  I wanted the drawers to have a little dimension, so I painted the first coat in a medium gray and then feather the charcoal gray in almost to the middle of each section.  I've never done it before and it made me a little nervous, but I realized the worst thing that could happen is I would just have to paint over it. :)

I like the effect. 

I chose to stay with the original pulls and sprayed them a pewter color.  

Thought it would be fun to do something sparkly down the front so I used these antique pewter knobs and love how it brings something a little different and unexpected to the piece. 

Smooth as glass. :)

These are the tulips DH gave me after my no good rotten day yesterday.  He's very thoughtful.  I love that about him.  I also adore this cage clock I got a few weeks ago.  Unfortunately I haven't found a place in my house for it yet so it's still sitting on my bedroom dresser. ;/


  1. I really do like this color, but can't help wondering what red would've looked like!

    1. Lol, I know. I wanted, so badly, to do it red and was a little bummed (crazy) when it sold before I painted it. I always have that struggle, pre-sell and do what they want or do what I want and hope it sells! lol

  2. I love this piece! I think it turned out amazing!


  3. As always, another work of art! That piece looks soooooooooo heavy, bet it is very well made!

    Hope all your days are happy ones, Lisa! Hugs!

  4. Lovely! And the feathering is cool....You could even say it glows! Ha!!
