"What color did you decide to use?"
"Tell me again what it looks like!"
You see my problem! Now I can just say, I'm busy painting The Frenchie, or some other clever name. Ok, so it might not solve all my problems, but it will definitely make it more fun!
So, on with today's make-over! Do you remember this piece that I scored on my estate sale excursion a few weeks ago?
Ok, so this is after I sanded it, but you get the gist of "Before"! I let it sit there for a few weeks while I decided what to do with it! I like to wait for each piece to feel inspired; for them to "speak" to me.
Then, one day I was digging in the "oops" paints and Lowe's and came across this
Um...You had me at $1.00! But the color REALLY got my attention.
I don't know if it's because I am ready for Christmas or because I was in the midst of planning the Wizard of Oz Party, but something about that shade of green enticed me. And within in a few days I had a quart of it mixed up and on my estate sale find!
Don't you love my makeshift lifts...Ella did! The green is nice, but a little too bright. So, I roughed her up, added some glaze, some copper pulls, and Voila!
Meet "The Oz"! What do you think?
This piece was so much fun to work on. Ok, fun to paint. It had some serious water damage, so the work was not so much fun! A big shout out to my friend, Shea! She came and completely dismantled the drawer so it would slide smoother (after I had painted it)! She has some serious skills when it comes to tools!
Thanks again for all your hard work! "We don't need no stinkin' man!"
Take one last look at her! This one is already spoken for, so she is not going up in Gallery!
Thanks for stopping by!
