Coral French Provincial with Cup Pulls

This project started with the hunt for the perfect dresser. My client has a new baby girl and her nursery was 99% ready, just waiting for THE perfect dresser/changing table. It had to be unique, it had to be coral.
After a long search, I finally found a piece that she liked. A French Provincial dresser in fair shape that happened to be missing a pull.
Well, that was not a problem for my customer because she already had made up her mind about the pulls and had even bought them already!

I tried to talk her out of putting modern cup pulls on a French Provincial dresser, but she insisted and, well, the customer is always right. I admit I was a little nervous. I searched for pictures everywhere on the Internet too see if somebody had dared to do such a crazy experiment, and NOTHING came up!

Could I be more wrong? I LOVE the cup pulls on this piece.

The color is Picante by Benjamin Moore. This color has been discontinued, but Ace Hardware had the formula and can still make it.

Cheers to the creative, bold and open minded people around the world! I love to learn from them!

It all started in the spring of 2013. I realized how tired I was to see my house entirely decorated with IKEA stuff. Nothing against IKEA, but after 12 years, I just needed some change. I wanted stylish, original furniture, but noticed that everything I liked from retail stores was way out of my budget. Thanks to Google, Youtube, and a couple of amazing blogs, I was able to discover and explore the world of furniture refinishing, and it was the beginning of my addiction. I now spend my days rescuing old, dull, unwanted pieces of furniture to give them a fresh look so they can be displayed, used and loved again for many more years to come. Thanks for stopping by.
