Dark Drama

Rich with color, these designs celebrated dark, moody, and vibrant shades.

Tall Teal Chest


A light aqua stencil of poppy stems stands out on this deep teal chest of drawers. To stay with the monochromatic feel, the vintage hardware were painted the same.

Midnight Buffet

Custom Project

A light wash of Black Suede paint by Behr created this gorgeous buffet. The chunky legs and details now stand out with the warm brown tone beneath.

Hand-Built Dresser


A facelift transformed this hand-built dresser by adding bun feet. the mix of blues and stained top give it a moody, rustic feel.

Buckeye Rolltop

Custom Project

Inspired by Ohio State, this Buckeye red got a specialty finish with black gel stain rubbed over it. The rich wood interior invites completing the task list.

Black Cherry Kidney Desk


Rubbing black gel stain over a bright red created this black cherry finish. Added French text in black stencil for detail.

Upcycled Victrola


This antique victrola had no back. I snatched it up anyway for its unique bottom details and fun opening top. For historical sake, I left the original sticker on the lid.

Classic Bedroom Set

Custom Project

This detailed bedroom set got a new classic look in Antique Walnut stain and Limousine Leather black paint. Complete with headboard, footboard, chest of drawers, desk with chair, and two nightstands made from a vanity.

Rich Side Table

Custom Project

You’d be surprised what you can do with a small table. This one was given decorative moldings – it’s the details that count. A rich red and dark coffee stain was just what this Harry Potter-loving teen wanted.
