Chest of Drawers in Indigo

Mahogany chest on chest painted in American Paint Company's Shining Seas.  My sister in law picked this color out and I really like it even though I usually stick with the more neutral colors.  I used rub n buff in Grecian Gold on the original pulls and hated it!  I took all the hardware off in order to re-paint the dresser in Coco, but when the hardware came off I really liked the color.  So I filled in some of the holes and put on glass knobs - much better!

Sorry about the pictures, they are kind of washed out - I find it very hard to photograph blues and it's snowy and dreary here today.

  1. I love the color, and that you left some of the wood tone, too! I haven't heard of American paint before, how does it compare to ASP or Maison Blanche?

    1. I haven't used Maison Blanche, but it's more gritty than ASP which means I have to work harder to sand it smooth. I prefer working with ASP. :)

  2. This is my fave color. It looks awesome with the mahogany. I really like the knobs with it as well. Beautiful job.
