Going coast to coast

I had a very nice lady contact me regarding the nightstand I have on etsy.

She wondered if I had a nightstand I could paint for her in wine and ivory. Turns out I did.
So I got crackin' and painted another harlequin nightstand. Not exactly the same, of course.

So, here we have the wine nightstand, soon on its way to a new home in New York, in a building flooded by the Hudson River.

We have had rain and clouds so I didn't have an opportunity to get great shots. No light, no shot. sigh. Also, no reflectors or ... well, anything.
So I present you flat interior images.

This nightstand has the cutest art deco feet. I think that's why I was attracted to it. And it's a stout little thing! Heavy solid wood with all dove-tailed drawers. A solid little piece, for sure.

I hand-painted a fleur de lis on each side. Gray was my trim color and this gave me a chance to use it a little more.

Checkerboard top! I do so love me a checkerboard top. :-)

Glass knobs – my new favorite.

And a peek at the other side.

In a couple days I'll post the corner table I've been working on.

And remember Walter? The giant, scary clock?

He has a couple coats of his main color on him now. I can't wait to see how he turns out!

  1. You don't need the sun for that piece to it!

  2. Wow! That is pretty awesome and unique. I’d love to have something like that for my boy’s room! I’m sure he’ll feel so much like a prince if he had something like that! I also like the second picture though. I like the color scheme so much!

  3. Daena, I just wanted to drop by and let you know about a dresser I redid inspired by one you worked on!

    Thanks for the inspiration, I hope you feel well!

  4. your stuff is always SO fun!! But can I ask... HOW LONG DID THAT TAKE YOU?!!!!

  5. Love it, Daena! You had me at harlequin! : ) Love the color combo, too. That clock is wonderful! Makes me think of the furniture in Beauty and the Beast.

  6. That clock is awesome! How fanciful and unique! Way cool!
