A few months back, I had the privilege of working with a client on a custom order.
We had decided on these beautiful pulls but our timeline was tight so I put in a rush order.
But by some quirk in the system, the hardware ended up taking the scenic route through who-knows-where snail mail land and I had to go with an unconventional alternative to meet my clients deadline.
Stupid Hardware. Why you gotta play me like that?
I kid you not, as the shipping company was pulling away with my client’s precious dresser cargo... UPS pulled up and unceremoniously tossed my package of hardware at my feet then drove away.
I could have returned them. I really could. I didn’t charge my client for them so it'd be my money I’d be getting back.
But they were so stupidly beautiful.
So I added the I-wanna-hate-you-but-I-love-you brass pulls to the 2018 Furniture Flip Bucket List and I waited for the next suitable piece...
This 6-foot 6-drawer dresser:
And transformed it to this:
Alright you brass pulls. You really can slay.
The color is our favorite "Scholar Green" by Ralph Lauren.
I was trying to recreate this fresh look from Chelsea's hunter green flip circa last year...
My original plan was to strip the base down and leave it bare blonde wood just like Chelsea did. But when I sanded it down, I found that the legs and front bar where two very different types of wood and there was no sanding out that reddish color. So I leaned into it and stained the whole base in a cabernet.
Plus those red wood tones make the perfect compliment to styling with my terracotta collection (like I need an excuse - I’m certifiably obsessed).
Well hardware, I’m a little less mad at you, but maybe helping me sell this big beautiful behemoth will officially get you out of the doghouse. Email me about picking up in Leesburg or about your third-party shipping options.
