Hello to you all. I hope you had a very happy holiday. We have been very busy in our home. On the day after Thanksgiving (yes...black Friday) we started our kitchen remodel. I know...CRAZY right? It has been a long month but we are almost done and the kitchen was useable for Christmas Eve dinner. There is a punch list that will be completed over the next several weeks but overall things have unfolded nicely. And yes...there will be a post to reveal.
Until then I would like to share some of the projects inspired by my New Boudoir.
I wanted an old fashioned dressing table and found this desk at the thrift store. Sorry for the photo...cell phone shot. I forgot to take another picture but I think you get the idea.
It was a bit beat up and the once beautiful wood overlay was mostly gone leaving a shadow of what once was. Before I got started I found these at the hardware store and they worked well as a replacement.
The hardware was original but rusty so I sprayed all with silver spray paint.
I used a leftover home made chalk paint in very light blue (almost grey). I wanted more of a washed look and using only one coat of paint did the trick. To add more character I used a dark wax in random places. I finished with a clear wax on all areas except the top where I used a polyacrylic.
Here are some more pics....
Stay tuned for more projects from my Boudoir!
Thanks for visiting,
