Heidi from Lily Field Furniture used Liquorice to match the style of this French-style dresser to a beautiful bedroom set!

A new client of mine contacted me to have a dresser refinished recently. She had just purchased the bed shown below and wanted her current dresser updated to match the bed.

The Black Liquorice paint color was an easy decision. It’s no secret that this is my all time hands down favorite black paint. It’s a perfect, true, deep black that covers beautifully! We also knew that we wanted to add some metallic accents to the dresser to match the bed. The trick was to keep the dresser from looking too circus like and busy!

After painting the dresser with Liquorice, I took a small detail brush and lightly went into all of the detailing of the dresser with metallic paint. Once that was dry I went ahead and distressed the entire dresser to blend it together and soften the edges. I also added the metallic paint to the hardware and then sealed the entire dresser and hardware with Tough Coat.

What do you think? I absolutely love how elegant it turned out!
