Another piece from Upscale Resale just begging me to take it home.
After a little dickering on the price and a reduction of $30, I agreed to make it mine. Then it sat around until I committed to a color.
But we all know what comes before that fun color part. It's the cleaning and sanding and filling in the chips and dings.
No, I did not take two months to decide on white. This is the primer.
A little fresh paint on the hardware of the wheels brighten them up.
The dark knob in the middle is from the top drawer of the tea cart. I bought the glitzy earings for $1 and had the other pair. Some stones were falling out of the glitsy pair but a little glue took care of that. I decided if I could make them adhere to the original knob they would be my first choice. I pryed off the earring backs and applied the glue.
It worked! And, yes, now you know the color.
This is the original hardware on the bottom drawer.
Here it is with spray primer.
And here it is silver leafed.
Not finished yet. I needed to line the drawer with a piece of paper/fabric. Not sure what the name for this is but I found it at JoAnn's and I thought it was awesome. (that translates to beautiful and cheap.)
Did not buy the liner after picking the color...just one of those accidental lucky happenings when things just come together.
Ok this is it!...almost. It looks blue but it's really not. It's turquoise.
It is Benjamin Moore 741 san jose blue (ok a bit blue..a blue turquoise) but mixed at Lowes in a Valspar gloss.
This is the true color. Guess it was just the lighting in the previous picture.
Again, it looks a little blue. What is that about? This is a little mock up for pictures in my studio/garage until I find the right place in the house.
Or maybe until I get the right house.
A funny little happening occured after I had this piece painted. When I removed a pushpin from my bulletin board to make room for something else, this picture fell to the floor.
I guess I latched onto this color long ago and kept it in the back of my mind until the right piece came along. Except for the glazing on this one it is an identical color match.
My blog is focused on what I saw, heard about, or encountered during my day. I ZOOM IN on things I find particularly interesting, beautiful, or humorous. My interests overlap and mesh in the fields of interior design, rehab, photography, architecture, color, and anything painted. Throw in salvage, bargain hunting, recycling and that summarizes what you are likely to find on this page.
