After all that black furniture I felt like painting a pretty French piece. Last week I bought this old imported bedside table - from a distance it looked nice but it was cream with a weird green glaze and up close it was looking a bit rough. There were some deep scratches in the paint work on the side that you couldn't pass off as gentle wear and tear.
I decided to paint in ASCP Duck Egg Blue with Old white on the trim. I then antiqued with dark wax to add some authenticity to the paint work.
I am pretty happy with how it turned out. I know these colours aren't for everyone but I just thought it was sweet and could be a pop of colour in a room without dominating the space like a bigger piece would. It was snapped up for sale so I suppose it struck a chord with others as well.
I need to organise some art work for the lounge room walls. Slowly getting there with the house...the list of things to do is still endless. I suppose it's like that for everyone and their houses though.
