Black Dresser with Triangles

I am so in love with those random triangle patterns that I can't get enough of it and even though I have done a few pieces with that treatment I find that the result is never the same. Triangles transition the piece into a more contemporary realm and give each piece an additional level of the one-of-a-kind element. This piece can also be found on Etsy, so if you are curious about dimensions and shipping options just drop me a line.

Midnight Blue Dresser

For this piece I chose one of my favourite blues (Soldier Blue in Milk Paint). I love how depending on the piece itself it kind of looks different. I have created an Etsy listing for this piece and judging by its popularity so far it may not last too long.

And here it is, finally done and I could not be happier with the outcome. It is now listed in my Etsy store, but if it doesn't sell I won't have too hard a time keeping it for myself.

In The Works

Unfortunately I don't have a before image of this piece. I also didn't have a particular direction for it in mind. I saw it, liked its lines, the price was right so I brought it home. A few days into having it in my space I thought I had the plan for it pinned down. I was going to paint it a beautiful shade of coral and attach some bunny shaped knobs on it. It was almost a done deal until I thought of an old painting I had bought (i bought it for the frame, the painting in itself was a bonus). I measured it out and it was a perfect fit and that is what completely chanted the outcome. I started cutting, sanding, gluing and painting and this is how far I got (masking tape is still in place to protect the artwork while still working on the piece) The painting and colours in it were the inspiration for the overall colour on the piece. A nice neutral taupe provides the perfect backdrop for the dynamic and action packed scene. I can't wait to have it completed and show you the final product. I am also toying with the idea to keep it, which will require some furniture re-arranging in my home, but it may be worth the effort.
