CAUTION: Heavy photo content!
|sorry you have to twist your head - I keep fixing it and it keeps showing up on it's side
Well I was going to try to match it to this one that I had painted for my bedroom -
And it turned out like this
B - O - R
I - N - G
( can you picture the pom poms? I would have made a great cheerleader )
for some reason it does not look as nice as the dresser I wanted to " mate " it with ( so they could create little end tables ha ha ) that rope trim was screaming for some work so I started distressing it
very gingerly at first - and then I got a little braver
hmmm, not feeling it yet at all
the white looks too pristine - and so I distressed some more..................
at this point I am thinking I should have just left the whole thing alone -
I ended up adding waxing with clear wax and dark wax and still it was missing something.
I still had a little duck egg blue and old white which I mixed with some water and dry brushed
the combination until it looked like this
I love it - but it absolutely does not belong in my bedroom now lol
So another one for sale.
Have a great day
