Driscoll Design Group: IT'S ALL ABOUT PAINT on Things

By Raglandhillsocial @GwenDriscoll
I love beautiful painted furnishings.  I'm either on the hunt for signature antique pieces or finish existing ones that need a facelift.  Here are examples Driscoll Design Group has placed in projects.
This exquisite secretary was a perfect find for a client's living room.  We purchased it from Karla Katz in New Orleans.  It graces a wall as a dramatic statement.

ACRE's front door has a high gloss yellow painted finish that is perfect for the "Come On In" feel we wanted in its entry.

This piece needed a facelift.  We enlisted the help of Stephanie Jones with Me & Mrs. Jones Painted Finishes.  She did an amazing job with black lacquer & gilt detailing.

A client's family room needed a punch of color to house these amazing pieces of pottery.  We custom designed the display piece & lacquered it with orange that's divine.

The occasional table here originally was a milky flat green that wasn't special.  We commissioned Stephanie Jones to black laquer it.  Isn't it beautiful now?

This chest was so old-fashioned & tired in its original state.  Stephanie Jones put a subtle grayish finish on it to help it feel like today.  Special!!!

I saw these chairs & knew they could be great with a little tweaking.  They're in our kitchen & are the perfect size with casters to boot.  Stephanie Jones added her special touch with black paint & subtle glaze on the caning.  Love, love, love!

Before & after of a client's awesome mirror... Stephanie Jones added a lacquered white finish that's magnifient.  It's perfect in its new finish & location.

This client's dining room was almost complete but needed something reflective & simple.  We custom designed a mirror & had Stephanie Jones finish it with a pewter finish that's delicious!
