Suzanne Cooke's Union Jack Dresser In Pink and Orange

Suzanne Cooke From Finely Finished, located in Mobile, Alabama painted this beautiful Union Jack Flag dresser in bright shades of pink and orange.

Q: What was the hardest part of this dresser design.....?

A: The hardest part of this dresser was keeping the lines accurate over the curvature of the front. The dresser was proportionally easy to adapt the flag design onto it, however the ridges and curves were very challenging!

Q: If you were to do another union Jack Dresser again, what would the color combination be?

A:If I were able to choose the colors of another Union Jack dresser, I would love to use gold, gray and white. Generally I leave that up to my customer!

Q: Why do you think geometrical designs are so attractive?

A:I think the geometrical design is just a clean crisp look.

Q: As a painter, what is your best tip for those who are painting furniture for the first time?

A:Best tip, be not afraid!:-) it's just paint! Talk to the people selling the paint, they are a walking book of knowledge! If they aren't.... Find someone else who is selling paint. That feels passionate about furniture and paint!

Q: Is there a particular style you are drawn to? If so, how do you update the look and make it more attractive?

A:I do love European styles, French furniture is so romantic! You can update any piece of furniture with some paint and new hardware! If not new hardware, painted hardware !
