I’ve been holding on to pictures of these little pieces, I think they turned out very cute but I couldn’t think of enough to say about each one to give them their own post and I don’t have all of their before photos. So…. why not post them all together???
First up, one of the cutest little side tables I have seen. It may look little but it was HEAVY! I don’t have the before but as you can imagine it was a little on the boring side. Carrie (her owner) wanted her to be a deep, dark red. So I gave it a few coats of red and to give it some depth I glazed it with a coat of RL Tobacco and a coat of RL Glaze with mixed with Black Truffles. All that glaze gave it lots of personality and dimension.
Crystal had been wanting to add a pop of color to an otherwise neutral room. She saw one of the pieces I had recently painted and she loved the color. She didn’t want any glaze or anything else to take away from the bright fun color she picked. She did want some distressing to bring out some of the detail.
For these next two pieces, I have the before picture as they were purchased from me.
The first one is a gossip bench or phone bench. How many times have you seen one of these and decided not to get it because you are not quite sure what to do with it. Well, Phyllis is going to put it next to the door from the garage into the house to have a place to set her purse and maybe kick her shoes off.
If I say so myself (*blushing*), isn’t just amazing what a little TLC and some paint can do?? Of course the fun apple green/turquoise fabric helps a TON. The insert on the back was a little too far gone to salvage. If you don’t see the before picture, you don’t even know that something was supposed to be there so I just left it alone.
And last but not least… this cute little chair now lives in Tiffany’s daughter’s room. Tiffany purchased a desk from me a while back but it didn’t have a chair to go with it. When I posted the before picture, she immediately knew it would be perfect for her little girl.
The desk was painted white with slight distressing so the frame of the chair needed to be white. The fabric was a bit more of a challenge. Tiffany wanted to make a statement. So she went shopping for the perfect fabric and trim and this is what she found…
Isn’t this the cutest little chair you have ever seen??? Check out the trim, it is gorgeous!
Thank you to all of you ladies for letting me work with all of these fun vibrant colors. Don’t get me wrong, I love the whites and creams but I loooooove working with color.
Talk to you soon!
