Playing a little catch up. I finished these two dressers just in time before I took off for a little winter vacation.  

This orangey brown dresser was very plain jane, but solid wood and good bones.  The client picked out a beautiful darker blue and with a change of the hardware, delivers a nice punch to the guest room.   Once it was painted, I decided it need a little more dimension and character so I glazed it with a mocha brown right after I did a light distressing.  Love the outcome and I would really like to use this color again. I tried out a different paint as well from our local hardware store, a paint made by Sherwin Williams.
