Remember I posted this last week - my newest find?
Well this is the first time I've done a make over that I know will appeal to something in EVERYONE !!!!!!
Because even if you don't like that I went all white with this one
or that you like a " clean " look- not " busied " up with a transfer from the incredible Graphics Fairy
or that painting black and white horizontal stripes on the middle drawer was just a little too much
( but I was thinking of a typical Parisien outfit when I came up with that idea - does it make her look fat?)
If you were thinking - " ok - enough already Suzan - really? back plates spray painted black for each side drawer - not necessary at all " and " crystal knobs are just too glitzy for this piece "
Even if I've lost you by the time I tell you the bench is being reupholstered in a black and white check
" are you crazy? checks AND stripes are a non non "
I can promise you - without a doubt - I'll win you all back with the interior of the drawers................
If it's very early in the morning when you're looking at this - try not to scream too loudly
but if you can't help yourself - just show your neighbors this- they'll " get " it immediately
You know me enough by now to know how impulsive I am - but this wall paper which I purchased a couple of years ago on-line has been stored away like the crown jewels - I'm so in love with it that I've been afraid to put it up anywhere in case it's not the perfect spot - ME - who'll paint a room 5 times in a week until I get it right - AFRAID to put up this paper.
Now that we're putting our house on the market - I'm dreaming of using it in another home - in the meantime I begrudgingly - ( very very begrudgingly ) cut off an end to line the drawers with
I could just melt looking at these - I've SAT beside that ferris wheel ( which is right beside the Eifel Tower ) many an afternoon, reading a book!!!!
( in the days when our business was still " good " )
Something for everyone!
Unless you hate Paris
and then there's no hope for you anyway ;)
Now speaking of the Can Can I was lucky beyond belief to spend a magical mesmerizing out of body experience once by entertaining some clients at the Moulin Rouge in Gay Paree - if you'd like a glimpse of how incredible the night was - take a look at this!
This is the show we saw - did I mention Magical?
I can clearly remember thinking " How is it possible that I'm sitting here watching this - me - just a Suzan "
p.s. if you're not into burlesque - do not click ( simplement, non ? )
There's nothing like Paris - absolutely nothing..............even if it's just in my drawers.
Paint used - Annie Sloan Chalk Paint - in pure white
Have a wonderful Monday all
