Do you still have the dresser with 3 doors and keyholes? I am in the market for a new dresser- I'm looking for something white (or possibly yellow) if you ever take orders for pieces you have on hand.
I have a plan for this one. Right now I am not doing custom pieces, but am willing to consider doing it in during the summer. If you want to talk more about it you can email me, firstname.lastname@example.org

Have you looked into Annie Sloan's Chalk Paint? I bought everything today. There is usually no sanding or priming needed so you might really like it. I'm starting with a cannon ball bed which was painted black so I'm going to prime, but the paint sounds great. Just wondering...I'm excited to begin. Your pieces are wonderful! Thank you for all the inspiration! ~Cami
Sorry I never responded to this! I have tried Annie Sloan and CeCe Caldwell's chalk paints. I think they have their place and can be good to use on certain projects, but I do really like using latex paints! Hope your projects are going well!
I love using latex paints too. Love your color choices
Yes! Flat and low sheen latex is my favorite - sealed with wax. I also like General Finishes Milk Paint and Old Fashioned Milk Paint :)
So jealous that you got a Brasilia!!! Been looking for months but they are in pristine shape out here and very expensive. Look at "The Papaya Tree" on Etsy. She did a Brasilia in white and the "carving" part in bright blue. It's gorge!!! Also, what color did you end up doing the campaign desk. I just found one almost the same as yours except it has the sawhorse bamboo legs. Can't decide on a color. white always looks sharp, but is so boring.
I was super excited to get the Brasilia for such a deal, but it really is not in the best condition. I have a Brasilia low buffet made up of just the sculpted doors that is in near perfect condition and I have not been able to let it go yet. I had to pay more for it, but still only a fraction of what they are worth. I have seen some of the Brasilia pieces painted and I am honestly could never paint one. They are a few of the pieces I will not paint, even in the terrible condition this one is in, it will be refinished whether I do it or pay someone to do it (it may be a pain to do the doors and get the whole thing stripped). The campaign desk is still sitting in the garage :) it needs to be sanded down, all the hardware taken off and redone, and I want to make sure I do it right if/when I do, so I am waiting on it for now. It's another one of those pieces I don't want to let go because I want to have it later on. I have thought about what color to do when I get around to redoing it, and I think I will probably stay with a more neutral color whether it's navy, black, or white. Since they are worth over $1000 when done I want to paint it a color that would sell easily if I chose to go that route and also a color that was neutral enough to fit any color scheme if I chose to keep it. I do love the ones I have seen that are bright green or red, and they look amazing in the right space. I am excited to see what you do with!
