This piece is crafted by the furniture company (Baker Milling Road) High Point North Carolina. A charming two drawer chest with a pull out serving table family acquired model home townhouse piece over forty years ago. I inherited the piece when my mother decided to make a major design style change and fortunate for me it has hung around in my life for the last 28 years. With a minor repair to a drawer rung and taking it from a dark stain finish to then add a lightness to its darkness this French empire chest has become a new piece for me to love all over again turning this piece like any other into a piece like no other.
I wanted this piece and paint finish white with a paler hint of gray to reflect a worn-out look as if someone loved this piece a little too much, well used and over looked to its value.
My design goal is to create a collected and salvaged well-worn peacefulness to every piece that touches my hands. Taking an old vintage piece beautifully built to last gives your home a sense of history grounding it to the present with a new old paint finish. Each piece painted so they can be a good influence on each other yet letting each piece inspire exclusively. I want each piece I paint to feel as if it had been this way forever putting soul into each creative piece gracefully adding second chances…Layering old with new for perfect compliments.
