Not every piece is going to be easy to transform. Some days you are more inspired than others. Some times the inspiration turns into a fabulous new creation, sometimes not. I have those moments and most of you have had them too. Here's my story of one of "those" days.
I have a nice Ethan Allen long, low dresser with a worn finish outside, but super clean and in good condition otherwise. Simple right? I thought so, and no I did not take a before photo because I just never seem to remember them these days. My apologies. :-)
I chose a deep dark brown base of American Paint Company's Wild Horses. Love that color for a base. On top I painted a couple of coats of Smoke Signal on the body and Limoge on the drawers. New hardware and voila`, finished right?
So back to work and here is what I came up with using Shelly's projects as my muse.
Now, there will be some of you, hello Mom, who probably won't like this any better than the first result. Or maybe will like the first result even better. But for me, it is heaven to see so much depth on those drawers now. I have not mastered that technique by any means, but it was so fun to try it out.
Have a super fab weekend!!
