t h e    g r o o m 

I bought this beautiful bow front dresser last weekend. 
My original instinct was to paint it white and grey.

Then I got this crazy idea to paint it black and white to match a shorter buffet that I am painting for a wedding.

This one became The Groom.  I paint the bride next week {she will be in all white}.

The white is Antique White by General Finishes and the black is Black by Benjamin Moore in Aura.
The pulls were spray painted a semi-gloss black.

For added character I decided not to distress the black, only the white.

Today I finished a coffee table and two end tables {only one shown}.

I thought it would be fun to paint the back of the side tables grey, why not?!

The base is painted Snow White by General Finishes and the grey is a mix of a grey sample of Benjamin Moore{darn I don't remember the name} and the Snow White.
I then distressed and sealed with Minwax, pastewax.
