I repainted a vintage dresser to serve as a buffet in my kitchen. It was in the LR area being used as a stereo holder...key holder, book holder, 'this goes in the basement' holder...you get the picture, a messy catch-all. A couple years ago I put this color on as a base coat with thoughts of more decorative things to come. I was going to do a faux zebra wood wood grain but lost site of it, I got caught up in so much more. So, for the new incarnation, I kept this base...
Then I put a wash of an orangey salmon color on it:
The blonde blob in the picture is just my Weezie girl thinking she found a nugget of something tasty.
A wash of rosey pinkish reddish (like how I describe color? ;-) ) was applied on top of that:
Now I'm in search of knobs that will fit the style and be somewhat feminine at the same time. I found something at Ocean State Job Lot that's very simple, has a modern feel and is shiny. I'd prefer to find something used or vintage but at $6 total and the piece is finished...I might have to go for it.
Later today I hope to get a moment to give an update on Lucy...she's making progress, little by little.
