{Meet Jackson} Nightingale and Skyscraper Painted Dresser

Yesterday I sd a tutorial on how to create a herringbone pattern using Vintage Storehouse Metallic Powders and Wax. It was a super fun project to work on and I’m excited to show you the finished piece! Without further ado, al me to introduce you to Jackson. He’s a bit of a ladies man ;).

Jackson came to me in a bit of a distressed state. The top actually had leather inlays, and my original plan was to salvage them and just restore the wood around the leather… but it just so happens that a good chunk of veneer was missing from the the wood around the inlays. I decided fixing it was going to be one of those things that turned into a complete nightmare – so I ripped the leather & the veneer off. Luckily underneath was some decent solid wood, so I sanded it down, gave it some slight distressing and stained it a gorgeous warm brown color!

Another problem I had with this piece is that I cannot stand this type of hardware! This is just a personal preference type of thing, but I can’t tell you how much I hated this hardware. I had to do something about it. So I decided to compliment the Metallic Stencil I had in mind with some silver knobs from Hobby Lobby.

I painted the entire piece with our new line of Chalk Based Paint that is coming out in June 2015 in the color “Nightingale”. This is a dark, moody blue that reminds me of the color of ink.

I added the Metallic Powder in “Skyscraper” using Fiddes Wax and a Herringbone Stencil I picked up from Royal Design Studio… but you can read more about that on yesterdays post!

    This piece is absolutely gorgeous and I love the color. In looking at the hardware you didn’t like it looks like the pulls would have been affixed with two screws and you changed to a single knob. What did you do with the two holes left from the old pulls? This is a dumb question but I have to ask…..

      Hi Heidi,

      I just filled the holes in with wood putty, let it dry, then sanded it down to make it smooth.
