Warm Wood Grain

Warm Wood Grain

The wood grain is what made this piece stand out to me and it is what makes it a showstopper as a finished piece. I’m so thankful to have gotten an order for it that includes keeping the grain as a feature rather than painting it. This warm wood grain two-toned piece will become a bathroom vanity in a new bath remodel.

One of my favorite staging techniques is using dramatic artwork to set the feel of a piece, and this canvas definitely does just that! With some towels and a wash pitcher of flowers, this warm wood grain dresser is bathroom ready!

Bio:I wanted to take a chance to introduce myself, I am Brandy Kollenborn, a furniture painter from Sacramento, CA and owner and artisan behind  “Brushed By Brandy”. I'm a stay at home mom of 3 boys, Noah 11, Ashton 8, and Logan 5, married for 16 years to my favorite furniture cameraman, repairman and delivery person, Sean. I have a degree in finance and left my career with The State of CA to stay home when my youngest son was born, with no clue what my next step would be, it was a leap of faith!The first pieces I did were a bedroom set in 2016 that tenants left behind in our rental, it was beat up, but solid wood, and I had nothing to lose, it was either going to the curb or I could make something of it. I've always been on the crafty/artistic side so this was a great way to express that on huge canvases. My hobby has turned into a booming little business, most of my pieces are sold before I create them and designed alongside my customer. My style is blended, smooth, colorful statement pieces for any room.I'm proud to partner with The Dixie Belle Paint company and Prima Marketing group creating sample pieces, lives, and blogging tutorials at brushedbybrandy.com. We are in the process of building our forever home on 5 acres for our boys, it will be my biggest custom project to date :) and I love sharing that journey on my page and in a blog as well. We are project people through and through, don't know how to sit still.I'm so appreciative of the support, my confidence wavers all the time, I love answering questions and connecting with other creatives, this community has been so welcoming to me and I hope I can return that! I’m so grateful for this opportunity, I never imagined there would be interest in me painting furniture in my garage!Facebook.com/brushedbybrandyInstagram.com/brushedbybrandyYoutube.com/brushedbybrandyBrushedbybrandy.com

    Absolutely stunning! I refinished a dresser to make into a vanity in my bathroom too, but I wish I had seen this before I did. :/
