Ah...I feel like now most of the holidays have passed, it's finally time to start focusing on the things my heart loves the most!!
I have so many awesome furniture redos stored up to share with you and I was waiting until all the Christmas craziness died down...and then Valentines :)
So now hopefully the weather will start cooperating and spring will finally start to peek out.
Because that means all kinds of paint projects which I'm dying to do!!
I hate cold garages and not being able to paint.
It makes me stir crazy!!
Soooo it's not entirely perfect painting weather yet but I have several projects from last year (yes, I've been saving them up!) that I can't wait to share.
And today's furniture redo had me drooling.
One of those pieces that a client brought it then I secretly wished I could pretend to 'lose' so I could have it for myself :)
I mean, check out this amazing vintage mantel she scored at a flea market:
I know, be jealous.
Cuz I sure was :)
She had all kinds of fun plans for it to be in her daughter's room and make it into a book nook area.
It was in amazing shape & had gorgeous curves and corbels on it!!
She wanted it a bright blue which made me incredibly happy!!
(Painting pieces white & black for people gets old after a little while)
Bright punches of color is where it's at!!
She chose a gorgeous aqua and wanted a distressed finish on it.
I'll just let you sit and drool over it for a minute :)
I loved loved loved the color of the raw wood underneath.
Not terribly dark and no crazy oranges :)
I sealed it with a clear wax for protection and a smooth silky finish.
And doesn't my milk glass look gorgeous up on it?
I'm telling you, I've had my eye out for something similar to this ever since I redid it.
This was one of my favorite pieces I've done- so simple & effective.
The bright blue drew the attention to it that it completely deserved.
Here's the beautiful before & after:
Are you as in love with this piece as I am?
And I know it looked absolutely amazing in her daughter's room!!
