Two Tone Paint Project Includes Complete Tutorial
This may just be my favorite two tone paint project. The color combination is perfect. Linen and off-white go together like peanut butter and banana.
How are you guys today? Wasn’t it a great weekend! I made it out to my shop and actually painted a piece of furniture….shocker. Bet ya’ll thought I forgot how.
It’s a nice solid piece manufactured by Hoosier Desks. That’s what’s stamped in the drawer. Now I know it’s not a desk but what would you call it?
I removed the doors to paint them. I really hate to do this because sometimes they don’t go back on right. I tried to paint them without removing them but that was a pain. I ran into stripped screws and misaligned magnet door thingies. I’m telling you guys…it takes 2-3 times longer to prep a piece than it does to paint it.
I painted the handles for the drawer and bought some fancy knobs at Hobby Lobby for the doors. I purchased 3 sets of knobs because I didn’t know which ones would work the best………and because they were all cute! None of them worked….I mean….they looked ok…but not what I was going for.
I found a couple of wood knobs and painted them to match the drawer handles….a flat grey/brown special paint mix…by me.
The furniture casing is Beyond Paint in Linen and the doors and drawers are Beyond Paint in Off-White.
The knobs and handles are dark and they really pop against the off-white.
After the handles and knobs were put back on, the foyer chest was all ready to go….but it didn’t look right. I told the JTS I was going to distress it. He agreed that it needed distressing because it was too……something….. I’ve brought him over to the dark side.
He had an appointment in the cardiac department at the VA last Friday and the nurse told him he could drive, mow the yard with the riding lawn mower, and not go fishing. Making progress.
