Last week was a busy time for finishing up some commissions. My daughter was at camp and my son was spending some quality time with his grandparents doing things like go-carting and playing mini golf ~ things his parents never do with him. I like to think it is because I just want my parents to get the rock-star status. I am generous like that....
First of all I finished this cabinet for Devin:
She and her family have recently moved into a beautiful new house and they are busy putting their touch on it. They had this old cabinet found at a garage sale.
It was old and very rustic and extremely heavy! Initially we were going to go with a white distressed treatment, but then she was inspired to try something a little more bold. I painted it with my current favourite blue from Ben Moore to coordinate with some wallpaper they had chosen for their new dining room.
It now has a very cottage-y feel to it. I added some distressing on the areas which already showed the most bumps and dents. Sometimes the risk with colour can really pay off ~ thanks Devin!
Next up is another returning customer with some nightstands that have been in the family for many years. They were so lovely, but needed some refinishing. Rhonda also wanted to take a risk with some colour. We coordinated the new colour to some linens in her bedroom and made a transformation.
