Well I'm never going to win any awards for photography unless they're in the " WORST " category :)
Our last house was too dark - this place was too bright for proper photos - let's blame it on that, k?
Last week I showed you this piece that a customer wanted updated
I can't find the before photo - so all I have to show you is this ( I've told you many many times I have no business having a blog - seriously - none at all - no before pics - lousy after pics ..............2 key elements for a DIY blog gone to hell )
But I'm hoping you can get an idea of how it looks from this - very Restoration Hardware ( ish )
I know some people paint the piece in it's entirety - with the drawers in and all - but I always remove them and paint the interior drawer frame
I also do all my distressing ( sanding ) prior to waxing - and I think most people do it after - it's a personal thing - I feel I have more control of the outcome this way - if I do too much I can always touch up - once a piece is waxed - the touch up process is very " iffy "
I've seen pieces where people have done that - and it ends up looking " choppy "
BUT like I said it's a personal thing - everyone finds a way to work that's best for them through
trial and error!
Once everything was waxed - I spray painted the knobs ( customer didn't like them and wants to maybe change them so I had nothing to lose )
This next photo is very true to the color - Graphite changes constantly - depending on the time of day - the light in a room - the lack of light in a room - it can go from looking quite light to a very deep shade
But this next photo is how it looked when it was delivered lol
and that's one piece done -
now on to these little guys ( and the most precious thing I found tucked into a ledge of the interior - actually choked me up )
For now I'll leave you with a little peak into the kitchen
Not finished - but well on it's way :)
Keep moving Suzan - one foot in front of the other - it WILL be a home one day..............
You all have a wonderful Thursday -
