For such a tiny room - this undertaking has been huge - I've had a paintbrush in my hand - non stop - for a week now - and I'm still nowhere finished ( although I can see the light - praise the Lord I see the light )
Anyway, another one bites the dust
I've chosen to go very " clean " with the furniture in here to try to keep it simple.
( and to remind me of the way furniture was painted back in the 60's when I was growing up )
And to keep it even simpler I've used the same gallon of paint for the floors - the baseboards - the dresser and the armoire ( hoping there's enough to do the headboard and baseboard too ) let's see how far I can stretch that 50.00 dollar gallon LOL !!!
( Behr's Porch & Patio paint if anyone is interested - extremely durable )
I spray painted the handles - the 4 on the bottom drawers were original to the piece - as were the 2 knobs on the top middle drawer - but the 2 for the top ends were missing their back pieces so I found 2 completely different ones in my stash - and spray painted them as well - there's nothing like antique knobs on dressers - the craftsmanship is so gorgeous - like jewels, no?
There's a remnant of molding on the bottom of the dresser - missing on the other side - should we saw it off or leave it with it's imperfection?
The details don't show up in the photos very well but they're really quite pretty in person
( subtly so )
I'm on the look out for a decorative door mirror - which will fit perfect horizontally
I hand painted a couple of dollar store birdcages in layers of colors a couple of years ago but never had a place to put them - so they'll rest upon the dresser for now
The details are the same obviously - but they jump out at you too much in their original state - and those 2 curved ones look like upside down boobies to me - nipples and all
I'm working on the Armoire now - and the last remaining wall - and the rest of the floor - and the headboard and footboard and oh yeah the ceiling lol
And I want to be finished and done with by Sunday evening when I close my eyes - wish me luck!
Really I should have been born with paint brushes as appendages - Suzan Paint Brush hands - like Edward
Yeah, I have to saw that little piece off - looks like a lost soul actually ( it wasn't even noticeable in the before photo!
Have a great sun shine filled day everyone !!! ( in between everything I have to do I intend to be jumping in the pool quite a lot too! )
I'll be at these fabulous parties - care to join?
