It might look like I've been doing alot of this:
But I assure you, I have not.
I've been doing alot of this:
You want to know what is in the spreaders? Cornmeal! We're trying to save our grass from some wicked fungus and it's dirty, dirty work! There's Brian lightly dusted and ready for the oven
(which is how it felt..so much humidity).
A good thing - our apple tree is going bananas in the backyard! They have a great balance of sour & sweet.
On to the business of some furniture - I finally finished the large wardrobe that I picked up with the dresser I did a few weeks ago. I used the same Wythe Blue paint from Benjamin Moore but I glazed (Valspar Mocha) the doors on this one just to mute the blue a little. Remember the roadkill before? Here she is now and I'm happy with how it turned out and more importantly, Mom is happy! It's on her sun porch holding extra blankets, pillows and some laundry supplies.
I was going for a banged up Parisian feel to it. The white paint on the piece had a weird texture to it. I smoothed out some of the texture with the heavy distressing. It was hard to get a good picture the sun was setting but you get the idea.
I think the knobs look sweet & simple. It's a tall piece so I didn't get a shot of the top but it's mahogany & polished up nicely. It looks just like the dresser I did for my guest room.
I added rosette knobs.
The glaze also brought out the design on the doors.
I had this cute little baby helping me take pictures...
Ok, well I'm working on our built-in bookcase now. We ordered the oak veneer for the desktop. It's going to be a HUGE project with a major impact on our den. I hope it turns out as fabulous as I have it pictured in my head. If not, I imagine it's going to be tough living with me until I get it right.
