I painted a bureau for my friend Ellie this past weekend. She wanted a very dark navy color to match the color scheme in her room. I chose the color Graphite which is a really dark charcoal/navy.
I think the outcome is a much more sophisticated version of an old bureau.
The knobs that Ellie found are very cool--they kind of have a tortoise shell look to them. I had never seen anything like them.
Thanks Ellie, I had fun!

I'm really pleased with the way this transformation came out...I'm just not sure what to call it...
It would work well as a side table...but it would also be a really cute (extra-small) buffet/sideboard for a small space. It would also be a cool liquor cabinet.
Whatever it is, I'm loving the wire doors. I kept the original knobs, just dry-brushed them with paint.
This versatile piece is for sale. See details in "For Sale" section.
