royal trim beautiful? ( not ) what were they thinking????????????
This piece was in some serious need of TLC - lots of wood filler - lots of wood glue - lots of clamping -
lots of little tricks to bring this baby back to life.
I am nowhere finished but thought I would share the first coat - ( paloma - ASCP ) which I was told was a light gray - and for sure looks like a light gray in the photos but which is actually to my nimble eyes a very pale mauve or lavender - pretty for sure but not what I was expecting at all - anyways it is only the base coat but check out the details............
|disregard all the pillows perched on top!!!|
and all the sheets sitting inside
as a matter of fact, disregard all the mess, everyting
except the actual piece of furniture, thank you very much, lol
|this pc is loaded to the brim with details|
|again the bottom drawer, she was begging for a little sparkle|
|if you think I'm sexy - just reach out and touch me|
aren't her legs gorgeous?
in that area to repair decently - so I covered it up - I'm good at covering things up, lol - all the rest of the
details are original - and there are so many of them I figured these ( one on each side ) would blend in
I am not sure but I think I will paint the top coat white - and only sand down to this color - I know it would be a dream to distress and show wood and I usually do that - but for some reason I am really loving the clean look of this - the interior will go white - although I wish I could be brave and go for a dramatic pop of color.
This is my current project and hopefully will be finished by the end of the week......................
Tomorrow is a paint free day, ( oh, just looked at the time - actually it is already tomorrow - so I suppose later we are going out and enjoying the beautiful ( although scary because it is so not normal ) tempurature.
Have a good Sunday all - the day of rest.
