Blue Desk

This desk was love at first sight for me. I first spotted the ornate base and once discovered that it was built of solid wood it was mine to take home. I paired it with this vibrant yet not "in your face" blue and turned it into a piece that will withstand the test of time. It now has its own Etsy listing where you can go for more info.

Pale Turquoise Desk

This vanity/desk has attracted a lot of attention on Instagram and Facebook and before I ever got the chance to share it on the blog it got scooped up and by no other than a former co-worker of mine which makes me super happy. The new owner is a stylish and awesome young woman and I am hoping this piece will bring more fun into her space.

Mustard Yellow Dresser with Hand Painted Knobs

This dresser makes  me happy just thinking about it. Bright colour will make it look like summer is in the room all year round. I could not decide what knobs to pair it with and went for the hand painted option. I bought the plain wooden knobs and Lowe's, takes off random triangles and painted them each in a different colour. This guarantees that there won't be another dresser of the same kind out there.
For more info check out it's Etsy page while it lasts.

Slate Coloured Bow Front Dresser

Here is the latest project from my studio. A few have come and gone since my last post without me getting the chance to snap decent photos.
This one is painted with milk paint and the colour is called "slate". It is a perfect blue with a hint of grey. Instead of using polyurethane I protected the finish with two coats of Danish oil with results in a deeper hue of the colour. I think I am a fan.
For more details on the piece you can cheek its Etsy listing.

Light Grey Dresser with Yellow Accents

This dresser is as sturdy as they come with storage to fit a ton of stuff. Built of solid wood it will last you a long time. Light grey body has been "funned-up" with yellow pulls, but if your love for yellow is lacking they can be easily replaced. For more info please check the Etsy listing.

Two New Dressers

I have had busy few weeks, lots of custom orders, which is great, and not enough time to update my Etsy shop. The work has quieted down a bit now which gives me time to work on pieces for the online shop and those I can share with you via this blog. I have had the coral piece for a while but have only now managed to do some proper photography.
The yellow piece has been painted with milk paint and protected with Danish oil. By mistake I put a wet glass on it and was terrified that it would ruin my hard work, but as the water dried off the mark was completely gone, like it was never there. Danish oil saved the day!

This Week It Is Colourful Sunday - Orange and Pink

Here is to a combination of colours that spells bold and confident. If you do find a place for them in your life just be careful not to go overboard. With this duo stick to the "less is more" mantra.
