Mr. Bradley – A Classic Dresser

He’s finally done! Mr. Bradley is a classic-styled, glossy black dresser with gold leaf accents. Quite a difference from his original state! I used Valspar Paint + Primer in the simple color “Black.”

After two coats of paint, I added gold leafing to the legs in order to achieve a “gold dipped” look. I also added some leafing to the original hardware to play off the legs. The gold leaf was then antiqued with a dark wood stain that I had on hand. When using gold leaf, I always use either a glaze or stain to give it some depth. This makes a big difference!

Mr. Bradley has a rich, sophisticated look that instantly dresses up any space! His classic lines give the room structure… and who can resist a little *bling*!

    I can’t even tell you how much I love your dresser. I have big plans to paint my current ‘hand-me-down’ dressers in my master bedroom black. However, my dressers don’t have your awesome curved relief at the top like your dressers (sigh). Really lovely job painting and foiling your dresser. I’m in love.

    Stunning! Black and gold where made to be seen together they create such a statement. And the gold frame looks perfect with it :)
