A match made in...the garage!

Fresh out of the garage today is a mismatched pair of dressers refinished in the same look to create a pair. It doesn't happen often, but every now and then I get a request to take various unlike pieces and make them look like a cohesive set or pair. It's always an exciting challenge to make these lone pieces look like they were made for each other!

For this particular job my client had two large dressers she wanted refinished the same way, bonded together by one mega fun print; chevron. What do you get with two strikingly different, (and large), dressers matched to one another by some large zig-zags?

Check it out!

Made for each other!

The low-down:

-Pieces painted in Country Grey by Annie Sloan Chalk Paint

-I painted Old White by ASCP over the surfaces where I wanted the pattern stenciled 

-After the Old White dried I used a large stencil, (ordered from Modello Design), to dab on Paris Grey by ASCP using a sponge brush.

The process looked like this:

-After the stencil dried I distressed the pattern with a medium grit sanding sponge.

Tomorrow will be a first peek of some progress with our basement - the key word being progress. Just a couple things to finish up before I would stamp the room DONE, (including a tutorial on changing out ceiling light fixtures). Getting so close, though, and it's looking a zillion times better!
