A Custom Order

  A gentleman called me last year looking for a dresser that he wanted painted in antique white, French typography and an ebony wax. Sure, no problem, come check out what we currently have. He came out, looked around, nothing caught his eye.  He told me he would call me again, he was building a new home several miles away and it was not finished.

  Fast forward a year, he called.  He had found a beautiful dresser from the 1920's, all the drawers pulled smooth and it was in solid shape.  He wanted to know if I would just add the graphics and  wax it.  I said yes, although I was leary.  I filled a jar with paint and told him three solid coats of paint.  

  He called me 3 days later, he was done and wanted to bring out the dresser, when could I get started? Wow, that was fast!!  Bringing out the dresser was the easy part, now try to choose a design. Even I take awhile with what design to draw, but nothing like Wes!  Several hours later we had a plan.  Thank you The Graphics Fairy for so many beautiful designs to choose from! If you haven't visited The Graphics Fairy's website, you should!  You will be amazed! 

  When I finished the dresser, graphics, wax and a top coat, I called him.  He was anxious to come over and pick it up, he had guests coming and this dresser was going in the guest bedroom.  I faced the dresser towards the driveway and opened the studio overhead door. There it was in all it's glory!  So often when you are working on a piece, you really don't appreciate it, until you can stand back and look at it. 

  This is Wes's guest bedroom dresser! 

  He rang my doorbell and before I could get out the door, he was hugging me! He loved it, packed it up and away he went! 

  Another happy customer! 

  Check out the detail! 

  The paint is antique white from General Finishes Milk Paint.  Graphics, The Graphics Fairy and Ebony wax from Mon Bri Wax.  Please show these retailers some live, for their fabulous products! 

  I love what I do! A little piece of my soul goes with every piece I complete! 

Peace, love & junk,
