I just realized I never showed you this piece in it's entirety - I showed you the bottom when that was done and then forgot about it!
So here's the BEFORE - she needed a makeover badly, right?
How do I know she's a she?
She has gorgeous legs
She has curves in all the right places
and she wears the cutest " drawers "
( she always knows her place, she's got style, she's got grace, whoa whoa whoa she's a lady )
And here's the AFTER - completely finished
I don't know why the distressing doesn't show in the above photo - it looks pristine, doesn't it?
But there was, in fact, some sanding involved
A little around her cute legs
I'm not sure why people don't like these types of knobs - I adore them - the customer may change them - but I feel they fit this type of furniture so beautifully - love the detailing on them -
These were spray painted a very deep charcoal although they look black in the photos
and just for the tiniest bit of drama - I painted the " ceiling " of this piece in graphite -
I did it for 2 reasons - first of all the pop of graphite is so nice against all that crisp white and a nice
surprise when you look up and secondly the ugly hardware of the lighting fades into the deep color - white makes it stand out like a sore thumb :)
You can't see it unless you're right up next to it
And she's ready to go back home...................
All nice and pretty like!
shhh - can you hear her?
" nights in white satin .............♫ "
She's a very risque type of hutch as you can tell - but hey - if you got it - you may as well flaunt it !
I used ASCP - Pure White on this one!
Have a great Tuesday everyone :)
I'll be at these parties!
