After prepping and spraying the piece in the color blue, I let it cure for a few days before I masked it off.
To be honest, I was all like..."wouldn't you like it if the ENTIRE drawer was gold and the line NOT running through the middle of it",(ya know, being a big baby about having to masking off the very detailed drawers). And she was like "Hmmmmm...NOPE"! Can't say I blame her. Having the line run through the drawers like we did definitely gave it a more special and custom look.
After masking it off, I sprayed a few light layers of the gold paint. She really liked the color of Krlyon Brass and although I was a little nervous about taking a can a spray paint to one of my pieces, I knew I would be using a very careful hand and clear coating it with lacquer so it would have a very even finish.
So, after saying a few prayers and promising to never have a bad thought again, I removed the tape.
I actually wasn't too terribly worried because I took the extra time to "do it right". I have a tutorial on creating the perfect stripes here. It is always worth the the extra time because the last thing I to do is touch up an imperfect line on a perfectly sprayed dresser with my shaky hands.
I am proud to say I did not have one touch up that need to be done on any lines. That will most likely never happen again.
So there you have it! A few clear coats of a clear, semi gloss lacquer and it looks beautiful!
I also love how the nightstands turned out in one of my my metallic finishes. My client will be using these as nightstands in a bedroom and the dresser as a buffet in her dining room:)
I also have to mention that my client sent me this gorgeous inspiration photo below. She loved this dresser by Haylie, who looks to use gold in a lot of her pieces. She does beautiful work her IG acct can be found here .
I am glad I was able to help my client create a gorgeous piece for her new home!
