Abbey from Design-Block reminded me that I need to post more pictures of my work. Since that is relatively easy and I have a few pics already downloaded, here's a picture of one of the most favorite projects I completed all year.
I really can't take the credit for it. Jeff and Nancy of Jeff and Nancy Inc. actually came to me with the concept. The design is similar that of a delicious duvet they installed in a job somewhere outside the little old town of Seguin. You know, the town with the really big pecan on the courthouse square. Bryan Duckworth, formerly Robert Earl's fiddle player, has written a darling song about it called The Big Pecan.
Getting back to the dresser, I just made myself a stencil and then hand-painted it onto the dresser. I'm thinking it may have been easier with the image projected onto the dresser, but I was in a time crunch and couldn't quite figure out how to get the pattern from the duvet to a transparency sheet. The other small problem is I don't have an overhead projector. So if you know how I could have done this better and more efficiently, do share.
Jeff and Nancy are some of my most favorite designers because they aren't afraid of color and seem to have an above-average slew of lovely clients. When I met them I was super-sick of Sherwin Williams' neutrals like Macadamia, Practical Beige & Sands of Time and they've been wowing me with colorful selects ever since. Go to their website and you can see more examples of jobs we've done together. Not all of them involved me, of course.
The vibrant green I selected is Sherwin Williams Verdant 6713. I'm sure I've mentioned it before. It's my favorite new green, besides Antiquity 6402. If you go to http://sherlink.sherwin.com/swapp/color_visualizer/ you can look these beauties up and take a look for yourself. I still haven't figured out how to insert paint chips into my blog.
So there you go. Tune in tomorrow for info. from my week at faux college.
