Beautifully executed! The design and craftsmanship are superb. I love the painting technique as it’s quite understated yet unique. What did you use?

Thank you for the kind words. The finish was Sherwin Williams Emerald for the green and gold. You can’t see it in the pictures. I should have gotten closeups, but there are flecks of dark gold, almost black in the green. It is slightly distressed and buffed out to a hand rubbed matte finish with briwax.

It is always easier to do these projects when you’re the first one in the unfinished room. The floors had not yet been stained/sealed. I wish I could get in there to see the finished office but this is a piece in a somewhat famous clients office. No reentry.

Great looking work. I have a couple of questions if you don’t mind; Is there anything special about that Sherwin Williams paint that makes it more suitable for furniture or cabinets? Was it sprayed or brushed? I’ve heard of paints specially formulated for brushing on furniture and woodwork that level out better and are more durable than a normal interior latex. I’ve also heard that oil based paints yield better results for brushing woodwork.

Also, what kind of drawer glides did you use for two end drawers in the window bench where the sides are at angles? Do they mount under, in the center?

Thank you for the comments. The drawer slides were Blum Tandem bottom mount slides for all 4 of those drawers.

The paint was sprayed. I haven’t tried brushing this paint. There isn’t anything overly special about Sherwin Williams, but I do always go for the emerald. It sprays without much thinning through my Harbor Freight HVLP. The entire project took about a month for build, roughly 30 hours a week. Install took myself and one other a little over 2 days since it was scribed into place.

Wow! I made top 3 projects!!! Thank you guys! It means a lot to me. I was afraid to post this because I feel it doesn’t compare to some of the things you guys have made, but apparently you guys appreciate painted wood as much as my client does!
