This piece went through several lives before reaching its final state. You know what they say about 'trying again', so I kept at it.
(I had already filled a bunch of holes when I took the before picture). The piece was gray, drawers were black.
First, I painted it white. Wasn't working for me.
Then I painted it Louis Blue… better, but not 'it'.
Finally, a coat of Aubosson (spelling??) Blue did the trick. I am so tickled with this piece!
I painted the mirror stand to match, but decided the photos came out much better without it. This piece is on it's original casters, and has markings on the back dating it back to the early 1900's.
The knobs are from Anthropology. My dad dislikes them :) He said "It looked great until you added those ugly knobs!". Gotta love honesty.
The hydrangeas are from my parent's garden, aren't they gorgeous? Mine are in full bloom, but not as varied in color as these. They say "summer" to me :)
thanks for stopping by!
inking to these great parties:
