Deep Dark Moody Gray Dresser

I'm really loving this deep dark moody shade of gray!
 
 
This one started out just a little rough around the edges, but strong and solid. It's one of those surprisingly heavy pieces!
 
 
It's that time of year when I'm finishing up the paint colors I have on hand. I've previously used this color on a pair of end tables and it's one of my favorites. I especially love the distressed edges against the gray. The color is Pencil Point from Behr and I mixed it with the chalk paint recipe on both projects.
 
 

I did the usual prep - sanding and washing. Then two coats of paint and three coats of wipe on poly.


I thought a little sparkle was in order with a mix of glass knobs.
 

 
Cute little feet, don't you think?
 
 
I think the deep dark moody gray is really sophisticated and it's definitely a color I will use again!
 
 
Next time you see this one, it will be all decked out for our holiday open house. Yes, we are knee deep in Christmas around here!

I agree, it is sophisticated, especially with those glass knobs. You're so good at making those little changes that really make a piece look totally different.
