Greetings all! This week we’re off on a family vacay in Kauai so this week will be light on posts, but I do have a few scheduled. Today I wanted to share a DIY project I completed as part of a painting challenge for Glidden for HGTV Magazine.
I mentioned last year how much I wanted to try this project and when I was asked by the Glidden team to come up with a something creative, this bone inlay inspired dresser came to mind. I borrowed accessories from the guest room and family room to style it up for the magazine, here is the piece that is featured inside the cover.
You’ll find the feature alongside fellow My Colortopia contributors Nicole and Eduardo, we each shared an inspirational idea completed with paint from Glidden’s line and they’re included inside a peel back wrapped cover in the June issue.
The process was simple but time consuming! I started with the $99 IKEA Koppang chest and a Nagoya stencil from Cutting Edge Stencils. The color on the chest is Glidden’s “Rich Navy” and partnered with handcarved knobs from Anthropologie.
The photography for the magazine was a “just enough to get the photo” process so I didn’t have to style an entire bedroom. To photograph the dresser, I propped up a partially painted $10 thrift store headboard on two gallons of paint and made up our raised inflatable bed with basic white linens. Navy Greek key trim from M&J Trimmings added a nice edge to a plain white window panel from Target.
I borrowed the pillow covers from our guest room; the rug I bought last year from Joss & Main for our family room. The coverlet on the bed is simply a folded up shower curtain from World Market, trick of the trade :) The Samba Double Gourd Lamp is from Lamps Plus.
Like I said before, this was a very time consuming project, not complicated, it just took three days! I had to come back to it repeatedly over the course of those days to apply the stencil but in the end I got the bone inlay look I was going for.
Thanks so much to Glidden for initiating the creation and for including me among the three to be featured inside the cover of HGTV Magazine!
Be sure to pick up the June issue, on newstands now!
