A study in light on a Johnson-Carper Tallboy

These pictures were taken over a 30 minute span in the morning. It was amazing to watch the light move across the sculptured drawer fronts of this mid century piece. Here are the photos (not in chronological order). PIN YOUR FAVORITE!Tailfin1 at MarthaLeoneDesign

This Johnson-Carper tallboy was beautiful before I painted the frame except for the formica top which was scratched. So, it was painted in a gray to compliment the veneered drawer fronts.

Process Sanded the frame then primed with two coats of primer. The only paint I use on mcm pieces is Benjamin Moore Advance because of its self-leveling properties.
