Happy Wednesday! Hope you have all been having a great week! Yesterday was my “nothing planned” day. We just sort of hung around the house… the kids played, and Emmy helped me pick blackberries off our bush.
I also decided to paint a piece I bought last weekend at a yard sale. I had headed out Saturday morning with cash in my wallet and high hopes! But all I was finding were yard sales full of kids stuff. I did get the kids a giant bucket full of a variety of colors in sidewalk chalk. But other than that, I was coming up empty… On my way home I saw one last sign and headed to a sale where I found a quatrefoil console and mirror. It was later in the morning, so I negotiated and paid 75% of the asking price. I really didn’t care for the dated wood finish, but I loved the details….
I wanted to keep it light to let the details show, so I went to one of my favorites… what else but Paris Gray chalk paint! I gave it two coats, lightly distressed it, and applied clear wax, dipping it in a teensy amount of stain every now and again just to give it some slight aging. Here it is now!
I just love these details…
Perfect for a narrow space… see how skinny it is? 😉
And one more shot of those pretty details… Did you notice the quatrefoil hardware, too? Love it!
It’s amazing what paint can do for these outdated pieces!
I am not sure what will become of this one… I was going to take it to Sweet Clover, but I think it may end up in my brother-in-law and future sister-in-law’s new home! 🙂
