The last few days have been really hectic over here! I’m gearing up to go to Round Top for 8 full days!!! I have tons of pieces I’m working on, I am trying to decide if I want to show a few sneak peeks… or not! I spent most of Labor Day weekend well, laboring. I know, I know, Labor Day was a long time ago. I’m just now getting around to talking about it. Most of the pieces I worked on that are meant to be taken to Round Top but I managed to finish a few clients’ pieces as well. Take a look at these pieces; I’ve had a ton of requests for pieces to be painted white. It just goes to show you that it is OK to wear white after Labor Day and these pieces prove it!
Remember Cooper??? I’m pretty sure you don’t he was placed in lay-away a long time ago. Here’s a before shot to refresh your memory.
I thought he was a very cool piece, he just needed a little tlc. You know how sometimes when you pick up a piece, you know immediately what color you want to paint it? Well, that was the case with Cooper; I really wanted to paint it white. I was very excited when his new owner told me that she wanted it white!! He needed quite a bit of sanding and adjusting the drawers and doors. A few coats of paint later, this is what Cooper looks like now…
All the beautiful details were lost in the dark but they now proudly shine..
I also worked on Reeves, here’s the before
Beautiful lines but with a finish that has seen better days. Guess what color was chosen for this piece… white of course!
We kept the original hardware as it is gorgeous, a beautiful shade of gold with some white peeking through. Just enough to coordinate with the new paint.
Last but not least, Carter…
Also white, just slightly distressed
Some of this piece’s personality was lost on the reddish fading into orange stain. White made him look fresh and crisp again.
I have so many more pieces that I am dying to share but I don’t want to spoil it for the antique show. Do tell me, would you like to see some of the Round Top pieces???
