People ask how I decide which pieces to paint, and often it depends on the condition of the wood. These mid market vintage pieces are very high quality in todays standards- solid wood, dovetail joins, heavy real metal hardware; but back in the 50's they were affordable. Often, the tops were a laminate to protect again scratches, and they were in a dull fake veneer pattern. This is how I began painting white frames on pieces, but also an opportunity to created a fresh piece! I love these bird- like drawer pulls!
