Built theses painted poplar and bead board pieces for my granddaughter last month. A matching four drawer dresser is in the works.

These are nice pieces. The breadboard adds some visual interest to the pieces.

Thanks for the post.

Love the multi colors. How did you paint them? The lines look crisp.

Very nice. I’m also interested in how you painted them.

I appreciate all of the comments. I am really enjoying all of the fine work that everyone is posting.

As for the painting, I can not take credit for that. I build them; my better-half paints them. She hand brush painted both and did a great job. We have HVLP spray equipment, but she would rather hand brush. All of the panels are 3/8” x 1.5” OC grooved bead board rabbeted into 3 /4” poplar frames – took her a while to paint all of the bead board panels. Almost done with a matching four drawer dresser for her to tackle next and I suspect we’ll not be doing anymore painted pieces for a while – back to quarter sawn white oak, dye, Tung oil, and wax…
