Urban Bronze

One of my favorite things about working with paint is discovering the unique qualities that show themselves as the paint is applied and dries.

Yes, I like watching paint dry. :) 

For this piece the color I used was Behr's Urban Bronze.

It's a rich gray with subtle bronzes undertones and even a tint of green. 

Since it was a slightly more masculine color, I wanted to make sure the softer details of the piece showed through so I used glass door knobs for the hardware. 

I think they add an antique quirkiness to an urban color.








The dresser has been lacquered and buffed for s sleek look and feel.

Oh so smooth. :)

The piece is for sale and for more info look under the The SHOP tab at the top of the page.

  4. I love, love, love this dresser. Love the color and adore the knobs. If my house did not already have dressers, I would buy this in a heart beat. You know what it takes to bring a piece of furniture come to life. The price is SO reasonable. In fact, it is a steal at that price. Someone is going to be very lucky. I enjoy your blog so much. Everything you touch becomes magical. Keep up the fantastic work. You are SO talented.
