Aubusson Blue and Eating my words

If you have been following my blog for sometime, you might remember me saying I would not jump on the brass bandwagon. Well, munch, munch, munch, I guess I have some eating of words, munch, munch, to do.

Because I think I'm really grooven' on the whole bright, saturated color and brass thing. The more I do it, the more I love it. Not for every project. No worries, you won't see the 90's coming alive here. I pulled enough pant zippers up with pliers for one life time. Come on, you know you wore jeans so tight you had to lay down on the bed to pull them on, as well!!  And those bangs . . . Yeah. You know what I'm talking about.

Sigh. Yes, we will let the 90's rest in piece. Even if I did see my 8th grade tube skirt on a girl this weekend.

Back to the subject. Brass handles.

I might be able to find a bit of space in my design board for brass handles. Not always. Not on everything. BUT . . .once it awhile it just works.

  1. Did you use a brush or roller for the dressers? Will you share how you got such a smooth finish with ASCP? Thanks.

  2. Of course--I spray all my furniture. I have a Graco HVLP spraystation. I add between 20-30% and mix until very smooth. Each color is different and will need a different amount of water. Rollers work great as well. If you brush--opt for a high quality natural brush--Purdy's are great. A bit of water in your paint will help it self level better. ;) Happy painting!

  3. THanks for the tips- the house we just bought has this amazing spray room in the garage- I wasn't sure you could spray ascp- great news

  4. i am cracking up at the 'pliers' comment.....and 'bangs'. ohgosh. we all thought we were so darn cute too. love the furniture....and the colors DO compliment the brass certain situations! Nice job!

  5. Love all 3 pieces! They look great. :)
