Anyhow, in his honor, I am naming this dresser Athena, goddess of war, wisdom and the crafts. Seems appropriate, don't you think?
She has good strong bones, as solid as they come. If any dresser was going to survive an apocalyptic war, it would be her.
This finish is an example of one of the few times I've used an existing finish as part of my finish. The cream color is the color she was originally stained.
She was then coated in blue, perhaps that was her uniform?
The graphite? Well, any warrior worth her salt is bound to pick up some soot, right?
Her knobs and legs are painted the same graphite color.
I love how this finish turned out. As a true goddess, she would look right at home in a variety of settings.
OK, how about one last full body shot.
Behold, Athena, in all her glory!
Athena is for sale. See more information on my Portfolio/Available page.
