It never sold -
I've had so much on my plate that I just left it there thinking that maybe someday......................
And then I had to bite the bullet - admit defeat - and start all over again.
The GOOD thing is that I had a year in between ( if I HAVE to look for the positive in a negative situation lol) so I was as excited to get my hands onto this piece as if I'd just bought it
I know it's very busy - ( now I know it's far too busy ) but I SO saw this in a little girls room -
I went with ASCP Duck Egg Blue
The top drawers already had the pretty oval molding on the edges of them - I added the " v " shaped molding - by putting 2 appliques on an angle each ( and touching each other on the bottom ) to form the V because there was a little bit of damage to the veneer - and there was no way I wanted to lose or damage that oval molding. I think they look like they were there forever...............
Do you want to see one of my ingenious inventions up close?
I use the top of paint tins inverted for drips - and I fold 3 or 4 scott towels and place them underneath the lids so that the floors won't get scratched - and I can slide the furniture around with ease...........
I chose to paint the surface white - because this time I was going for a clean look -
And I love the juxtaposition ( I also love the word juxtaposition btw ) of solid white against a color
I left the interiors of the drawers the same as the first time I did them -
This is how they looked when I originally bought the dresser
and some mac tac paper graces the bottom 2 drawers
actually now that I look at them I think I should paint the 2 interior slats of wood Duck Egg blue as well
The 2 diamond shaped appliques were placed there because the keyholes didn't look very nice at all
they had some extensive damage to them
I spray painted the handles a very light silver - to tie in with the glass knobs on the top
I was going to dark wax it - but I think I'm going to look at this for a day or 2 before I do it
I'm really not sure on this piece
Stay tuned - on Thursday I'll show you how I turned this mirror
( which I bought on it's own a lonnng time ago )
into her Crown
( and you thought she only had slippers? )
Have a great Tuesday all!
