I went to Red Rock Rose to help them work on a couple pieces last week.
They had a dresser that needed some TLC and a night stand that they couldn't sell. I noticed that both pieces had the same legs and similar hardware. I thought these two pieces would work well together as a set. I took off the hardware, sanded them well, then applied a primer to all.
After a couple coats of primer, I applied an extra dark flat brown paint.
Realizing that the hardware was old and would be costly to replace, I decided to scuff up the furniture to make it match the hardware.
A couple light coats of Polyurethane and - Voila!!
Brilliant new matching pieces.
I alway have a great time at Red Rock Rose. These pieces are on their shop floor - so go by and check them out!
