I feel like I'm caught up but I can never trust what the next day might bring.
Maybe tomorrow I'll break my ankle or get a book deal.
I'll hoping for the latter, but be content with my tools and the next project.
With this revamp I enjoyed playing with paint color.
I've calling it FRENCH BLU,
it is a mix of ASCP colors, another kitchen counter creation.
It is very close to Duck Egg but not as strong,
This is the BEFORE, quite a difference huh?
It had been painted in a chocolate brown latex and I tried to use the brown to achieve a funky modern design,
but there were missing bits to the drawer corners which don't look right with a clean modern design so I changed plans and went with a well used vintage feel.
I adding the legs right and these wonderful swirling appliques.
They change the whole feel and shape of the dresser.
All the distressing made the piece come alive and I achieved the right look.
Below was my inspiration and I would have love to use french provincial handles
all the way across this piece but I just didn't have them. Who's hoarding all the handles I love so much?
The drawers also got a silver and blue liner.
Wallpaper available at Homedepot.
The escutcheons (fancy keyhole plates) are just for looks,
and George has these handles in his Etsy shop.
And before I leave you ....
