Dressers are Red, my love ........................

Morning everyone!!!

I don't have a before for you this time - guess I deleted it before I should have :(
But I had decided this too needed to go red long before I dragged it home to do it!!!
But it looked very much like this one

This is the third one I've done - and the third one that's sold right away ..............this color is magic - it
may become my new signature color  !!!

As most of you know Quebec has a majority of French speakers................and Red is the color of passion
Maybe that's why?   And Oh how those romantic people love RED :)

Most of my Paris Grey and White's are bought by English speakers LOL

The depth

The richness

red, emperor's silk, dresser, makeover, chalk paint, brass handles, annie sloan

speaks to their hearts I believe

and doesn't it look like one big gigantic heart?

  3. Yes, I'd put a heart around that, too. It's beautiful!

  4. Maybe if my French husband had been painted that color I would have stayed married to him. Maybe not... :)

  5. Very pretty! The French are an adventurous sort aren't they?

  6. That looks great. I LOVE the red and think it brings out the beautiful lines of the piece. Love the dark wax/stain(?) on the edges, too. Great job, Suzan. You did good! xo Diana

  13. I adore red, but the ONE furniture piece I've painted red is still unsold. Maybe the magic is you!

  14. I love red! I have a few pieces in my house. This is a great piece no matter what color. Love it!

  15. It's a beautiful piece to begin with (I love curves!) and the red makes it look gorgeous!

    Just curious.... which part of Montreal is your shop? (I'm from Montreal but moved south of the border because of hubby's work.)

    ReplyDelete
  16. Yeah, I'd buy that in a second too. I think it's gorgeous and am not surprised it sold quickly.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Ooo la la! Did you use dark wax over it? Did you stick some blue Christmas balls in one of the drawers? Inquiring minds wanna know.

  18. Suzan,

    Gorgeous!! I love, love the color. I am a color person and like subtle color too. By the way, do you ever sleep? You are like the Energizer Bunny...LOL!

  19. That is gorgeous, Suzan. I have a quart of Emporer's Silk and have never used it. Maybe it's time. You have inspired me.

    ReplyDelete
  20. If the French go for Emperor's Silk red, then the Italians must go for a Bordello red!

    I'm Italian, but I usually stick with the gray and white like the stuffy English. Oh well, I'm a disgrace to my ancestors.

    Lovely work on the dresser, btw.

  23. Hi Suzan!!!

    I've always loved this dresser and now you've made it absolutely gorgeous!!!

    I remember a designer that said you should always have one item in a room that is black, but, I beg to differ. I love having one item that is red...All shades of red. Red holds your attention right away when you walk into a room.

    Beautiful job Suzan!!!!!

    Enjoy the rest of the week!!!

  26. Ooh la la. Beautiful rouge. My husband and I are trying (TRYING) to pick up a little french to help us on our upcoming trip to Quebec (to celebrate my impending descent into the next decade of life). The word for "bathroom" is at the top of my list. haha

  34. That red is so deep, how not to fall in love with it? Red is also the colour of rebellion. A friend of my mother's grand-father had been arrested during the Second Empire because he painted his mantel red, meaning by that he was against the Emperor!

  35. Truly gorgeous Suzan! Maybe I need a signature color!!

  36. Hi Suzan, it is beautiful! I love the red! Thank God for the upcoming rain, I can hear thunder hear as well. Today was SO hot and humid that I was beginning to feel sick. Take care of yourself and stay cool, it is so nice to hear that thunder!

  43. Hi Suzan, I LOVE this color! I'm going to be painting a dresser for my nephew in this color soon because he LOVES red! I think it will add a beautiful pop of color to his room. It looks amazing on the one you did! Great job!

  45. This is really beautiful! I'm still trying to build up the nerve to paint an old desk that I want to turn into a shelf. It's currently like this mohagony laminated color which is...okaay but I really wanna try adding color. Thanks so much for sharing, this might be the push I need ;)

  48. I love that I can see a picture at a link party and know before I click it that it is you. Your work is beautiful and just stands out.

    I am off now to convince Steve that our dresser needs to be painted ASCP Greek Blue. I have the paint and am ready to go, but I realize that he might just have a word or two to say about it.
