A lovely customer who bought one of my pieces recently also asked me to transform her little dressing table.
She really needed that blue paint to go.
|Did you notice I didn't watermark this!|
At the risk of offending someone, why did the person who originally painted this think it was a good look?
Now that's heavily distressed.
Well, I'd be distressed too if I looked like this!
ha ha, furniture jokes...
Actually I saw the same finish on a beautiful little chest of drawers last week at auction. I would have loved to get my hands on the chest and paint it way more simply. Unfortunately it sold to someone else who will sell it as is for $585. It makes me realise how cheap my painted furniture is in comparison.
Anyway for this dressing table, we decided on a cream colour (Dulux Magnolia). Danielle wanted to use the same handles and they look good with the soft cream. I have not used cream paint much before I was pleasantly surprised by Magnolia. Not too yellow, not too peachy.
It's all back at Danielle's house now, waiting a few weeks for the paint to cure before she uses it again. She has lots of lovely perfume bottles she lines up on the glass shelf. Very pretty
