Sometimes that happens - I buy a piece to do over and sell and then I
Just. Can't. Get. Rid. Of. It.....................
This is probably the first time I've bought a piece that had the perfect wood top......................
I did nothing to it - not even wax - because it's that perfect - beautifully aged maple.
and it compliments the pure white ( Annie Sloan Chalk Paint - Pure White )
I love that it's an understated piece - not fussy at all -
I only lightly distressed the drawers - I left the frame pristine
I didn't really have the space for it - at all - but once the slip covers arrived, I knew I had to find a place - so I tried different configurations - she ended up tucked into a corner - sorry dresser - this is NOT a time-out - I just have nowhere else to put you.
John says - well that's ridiculous - just sell it - what's the point of it being in the corner hidden away?
WHAT'S THE POINT???
The point IS that I like her ( her name's Mrs. Jones )
And we have a thing going on.....................we both know that it's wrong
but it's much too strong to let it go.................
And I need to keep her
And if the only place I can find for her is tucked into a corner - well - I know ( I know I know I know she'll be there )
And sometimes that's all that matters.
Until the next one comes around that I absolutely HAVE to keep - and then Mrs. Jones is out the door
I'm not very loyal to furniture
And that's why she's staying exactly where she is ( for now )
She lived with one family since 1945 - so she isn't ready to be flying all over the place anyway - this was a huge adjustment for her as it is
I may not be loyal to furniture - but I certainly have a heart !!!
Have a wonderful day everyone !
