While we are waiting for the reveal of my daughters room makeover I thought I would share a piece that I just brought into her room.
It was in much need of repair so I knew paint would look amazing on this piece.
Some may cringe when they see the before photo and wonder why I would paint such a lovely piece.
But as I said it needed much repair.
Parts of the wood were chipping off.
Some water damage too.
But since I knew what I wanted to do and was looking for a distressed piece that was going to work for my benefit.
Isn’t this a lovely piece!
This dresser was found at a thrift store.
My original intent was to paint this and sell it.But after thinking about it I could not part with it.
That mirror is not original to this piece.But was found at a thrift store too.
I painted a coat of Annie Sloan old ochre and highlighted the detailed wood appliques with old white.
I will share with you in another post how I attached the mirror.
That small display cabinet holds some photos and awards of my daughters.
I blocked it out to keep those personal photos private.
You can see how this wood was chippy on it’s own.
Painting this piece made it stand out a bit more.
Love the details on this piece.
Wait until you see the other piece I bought with this.
They go together so well!
You can see why I fell for this piece!
And you can sort of see the old wall color too.
I am sure you noticed it is now white
I forgot to take a before photo of the mirror.But it was the same color wood.
Hoping to reveal her room in the few days.
Today I am working on some pieces I am bringing to The crown jewels of art show
I better get back to work!
