Black dipped tallboy

By CMB World Designs, LLC, Owner in Fairfax, VA.

This is another one of those pieces that we bought and almost didnt.  It was missing feet and pretty beat up.  Luckily, with most mid century pieces under all the ugly is beautiful wood grain.  Lots of elbow grease, great products and some experience and you got yourself a gem! This bold look a great vibe for simple pieces.  I sanded this piece, filled imperfections, primed, sprayed lamp black milk paint and sealed with GF High Performance Top Coat.  All the wood on this piece was completely refinished, added GF wood conditioner, applied GF Nutmeg gel stain and sealed with GF High Performance top coat.  Also added was the simple brass knobs to complete the modern look on this mid century classic.
