I finally was able to do a little painting the last couple of days
and it feels good to get back to normal!
Last week, I posted this picture
to my Facebook page giving my followers the option to choose to my next project:
After an hour, y'all chose...
Here's what I started out with...
What were they thinking???
And check out the placement of the pukey pulls...
A little bit of La Craie "Magnolia"...
AS Dark Wax...
Some new knobbage courtesy of HL...
AS Silver Gilding wax...
And she's very Frenchy Foo-Foo.
The interior got a little
And it's a great place to store my dishes.
The detailing was actually a happy mistake.
I wanted the detailing to stand out,
but I wanted something a little different
than the usual antiquing wax.
I applied the gilding wax and hated it.
It was too much.
So I put another coat of the La Craie back over the top of it.
Then I waxed it.
The coat of paint was removed just slightly and
the gilding wax that was revealed is just right.
And perfectly matches the knobs I chose.
I love it when stuff like that happens!
I haven't decided if I'm going to keep it.
It's definitely a little fancy for our living room.
I'm going to leave it and see if it grows on me.
Something tells me, it just might!
