Tall Black Dresser with Pottery Barn Appeal

I’ve been getting a lot of requests from followers to get a heads up on pieces before they reach the store, so here goes ~ sneak peak of the black highboy dresser I finished tonight.
I had a lot of fun distressing this one.
I learned how to do this reading Guide to Furniture Finishes.
For less than the cost of a gallon of paint, you too can learn to get this look.
We just dropped this dresser off to our booth at Not So Shabby Antiques and Fine Furniture
*Let me know if there is something you’re looking for that you haven’t seen.  We have a lot of projects in the works as well as some fabulous pieces patiently waiting their turn.  Contact us if you have a piece of furniture you would like painted!   Update:  Nov. 2014  We’ve been working about 90 hours a week.  To shorten up the amount of time spent at work, we have cut back on doing custom orders.  Feel free to check back with our studio from time to time as we may take select pieces from time to time depending on our current schedule.
Stay up to date!

  1. Beautiful piece. You cannot beat black. And, hey, I’ve already purchased the book and it is reaaaally good……so much good instruction.
    I’ve just become your most recent follower, so please, please come visit me and maybe you’ll decide to follow back. THANKS.

    1. Thanx for following Candy! I love the book too. Painting black has always been a little more challenging for me; I’m so used to using different paints. There are so many ways to do furniture and I love experimenting with different techniques. I’ll pop by and check it out:)

  2. Hi Shelly;
    I have been unable to send you a direct email through your blog…not sure why it won’t allow me to. Is there a direct email that I can use other than through your blog to send you some photos of two dressers that I’m interested in hiring you to paint and wax for me?

    Thank you!
