I have had such a crazy day, I am getting to this post a few hours later than I had hoped. I listed it on Kijiji earlier and I have had some interest already....
I was really excited to find this little gem. It was an empty mantle for an electric fireplace and looked like this when I found it:
It wasn't too bad, but the stain was a little dated and the finish was pretty scratched. When I took it home with me I felt like I had really scored with this treasure! I love the idea of being able to add architectural interest in a smaller space that doesn't really have any. I think this would be so great in an apartment or condo ~ part of me is hoping to be able to keep it for our bedroom as it would be perfect in there....
I primed and painted it with my favourite new product from Benjamin Moore that I have raved about here earlier. The colour is a beautiful pale and creamy grey ~ Balboa Grey and will easily complement any decor.
The edges are very lightly distressed, but for the most part, I just let the nice clean lines do their work.
It is not too big ~ a manageable size at
40"H x 33 1/2"W x 12 1/4D.
It is available right here for purchase.
If you have a piece of furniture that needs a makeover, I would love to talk to you about that. Please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. I am also on Facebook and Twitter and one day I will add the buttons on the side to link you there.... Not today, but one day.
