Bone Inlay Inspired Dresser {Featured in HGTV Mag}

Monday, May 19th, 2014

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. koppang chest to inlay lookalike

I wandered into my local Lamps Plus store a few years ago and I’ve been a fan of their products ever since. I used their drum chandelier and plug in pendant in my son’s room in 2011 and raspberry pink lamp in our guest room makeover this past summer.

Two of their mirrors have long been favorites of mine, the Casbah which hangs in my living room and the Hill & Dale which hangs in our hall bathroom (links below).  You can see both mirrors in this home tour I posted earlier this year, and I’ve also rounded up more of my current favorites.
