Gray Beast

By Laura Johnson-Hernandez, Owner and Design Artist at Designs by Laura in South St Paul, MN.

This Beast is heavy with lots of drawers.  I wanted to update it so it would be modern and fit with most decors.  I choose Queenstown Gray to give me the sophistication this piece was asking for.  Than I took seagull gray and driftwood and color washed them into the drawer fronts and sanded them until I got the color mix that worked.  I decided it needed some extra depth so I used a layer of pitch black glaze to add demention.  The results where stunning and this beast was ready for its new home.
