Lacy + Victoria...a diy furniture love story!

I had mentioned back in my post on Valentine's Day {The Snow is Falling...} about a special mate named Victoria for Lacy {here}.

Meet Victoria.

She came into creation when we delivered Lacy {Bathroom Sweet + roping} to her new home. {Ya I know, weird I name the pieces.} We had an idea to design a hutch for Lacy...and out of it came Victoria. A couple of quick sketches and she was done.

Lacy + Victoria is a custom hutch perfect for your hoe decor. Features gobs of roping, hardwood accent, and routed channeling for displaying your plates and platters.

She did give me a hard time with the Bombay Mahogany finish on Lacy, but I persevered and she is gorgeous!

Lacy + Victoria has 2 shelves with routed channels for displaying your beautiful china. Whether it be inexpensive or super pricey its going to look fabulous against the black roping!

Hand drawn curves on the sides of her make her like no other.

We gave Lacy a two-tone finish to match her partner. A stained and varnished top gives so much more protection to a piece and the glossy finish makes her shine with beauty.

Details

The stained parts of the 2 are Bombay Mahogany by Minwax. This shade comes in a stain + poly which is great. However I like to be extra cautious on the tops of pieces so I added what felt like a million coats of varnish. The last couple of coats I used Wipe on Poly by Minwax. It being over a certain size the wipe on poly gave it such a smooth dust free coat of protection without any streaks. Love!

The paint like I said was Benjamin Moore Advance paint in a satin. Previous pieces were painted in a latex with oil or water base poly following. This time around I wanted to try something that would give better protection with fewer steps. I will be reviewing this paint...after I finish projects in my kitchen and living room.

The drawer pulls are a brushed nickel that we have used on both the rope-less version of Lacy and Lacy herself. They are beautiful with just a touch of aged beauty. Super easy to go on and extremely easy to use.

They are just a beautiful pairing!
