Here is an update on the nightstands that I was working on earlier in the week. You know, the ones I got to demo.
Here they are now, before wax and distressing. I think I decided on the lighter color, what do you think?
If you look close enough, you can see a few spots that I purposely crackled the paint to add to the ‘antiquing’ process. The wax will settle in there and look all ‘old’ and stuff. The key is to just do a few areas here and there, nothing too deliberate. So, deliberately non- deliberate. Make sense?
Also, had the pleasure of working with Barcelona Orange on a special clients table. Love it with tons of dark wax. Orange is THE color for 2012, I hear.
This beauty is going to be our headboard. Just needs a little cutting here and there, and then a coat of Old White, some sanding and waxing, and voilà, our headboard!
Another custom piece for a special someone. Yes, you know who you are. I am looking forward to seeing you soon.
And finally, I just can’t decide on what color to paint this darling, little vintage cabinet. It is cute as a bugger, just can’t decide on color. Got any ideas? Come on now, we women LOVE to be asked our opinion, let me have it. It is just under three feet, I think. Too cute. Emperor’s Silk, Graphite, something neutral, something ‘beachy’. I’m stuck, help.
I added a few items for sale in previous posts, check them out. I spent an hour updating my ‘for sale’ page only to lose it all. Lord willing, it will be updated soon.
Have a lovely day of rest tomorrow.
