One down - one to go - but thought I'd show you the first one ( they're going to be identical anyway )
And here's how it started out
Every single photo I took was blurry for some reason - so I had to re-stage it again tonight - this blogging stuff is hard work sometimes because even the second try came out terrible.............I really have to take a photography course.................and get a good camera ( that may help immensely )
Point being, you'll see photos where it's staged differently LOL
for those of you who missed the post on the " eyes " all over these pieces you can find it here,
called Blue Eyes Crying in the Grain
I know they're bookcases but I'm showing you how I would decorate them if they were mine LOL
Wouldn't they be beautiful in a farmhouse kitchen - loaded with vintage dishes and cookbooks?
This next photo is the truest colors
These plates ( the complete set - creamer - sugar - dessert bowls - soup bowls - dinner plates - bread plates and 2 platters - setting of 8 - were a find many years ago at a flea market )
and I discovered a new little trick ( for me )
once all the old white was painted on - I taped up all the shelves - top and bottom of each one
and then laid the whole thing on it's side - soooo much easier to paint the undersides of the shelves that way, let me tell you - those of you that have painted shelves will know what I mean - trying to get in there and painting upside down and paint dripping all over the place - this was much better!
The beadboard on the back of the unit is painted in old white - it looks darker because of the shadows......
But the Old White and Coco ( ASCP ) are such a beautiful combination
and the best part?
the eyes are gone !!!
Off to work on it's twin sister....................
Have a great day everyone
