Less Is Best? This Time, Yes.


Sure...I guess.


These colors together create a visually soft experience on this dresser. I am not usually a "gray" or "white" kind of painter, I know. I actually sat down to paint this dresser and chose a blue. But, then I sat there staring at the details of this piece. Aren't they amazing? 

I jumped up and grabbed my favorite gray, Steamer Trunk from Vintiques. I told myself, "less is best" - with this piece, "yes".

I distressed it heavily and really let the wood grain show through.  The coral is a perfect compliment to the gray and the white softens the entire finish perfectly. 

I know this post is short, and sweet and simple but I think I'll keep in theme, "Less is Best". I sold this dresser from just the little sneak peek clip on Facebook and Instagram so I decided to do another, very similar.  You can expect to see that one this week, as well.

I hope you all have a wonderful day!
