With the current state of the art studio I feel disorganized, cluttered, frustrated and uninspired.
I have window treatments on the brain. I am rearranging furniture. The pieces of furniture that have been waiting to be rehab'd are finally being completed! yahoo! These 2 pieces have been painted, distressed and just made into pure awesomeness and storage. love.
this piece was found at a garage sale. $10. Very 60's, old chipped veneer has been covered with wallpaper, as is the back of the shelves. The wood primed and then painted with a light teal color....then heavily distressed with sand paper. It has a real beachy feel. I just have to get the perfect knobs.
This piece is an old dresser given to me by a friend. The marble on the top lead the color. The undercoat is white and then painted over it with a beautiful warm gray....and then distressed to expose that white and show its lines. loving this piece!
And then here is the mirror that went on top of the antique dresser....it wasn't very stable.
So, I decided to create this chalk board message center for my kitchen!
(used the same paint technique as the dresser)
The mirror even has little ledges for the chalk, that back in the day held candles!
Rehabing my environment and old pieces is just plain good for my soul during these winter days....I feel alive when I can create. In a life that often feels like I am running in circles, being able to complete a project and make something pretty just feels so good!
