Sidenote: If was a beautiful day! The sun was out, no wind..perfect. However, we still had our mitts, heavy jackets, hats and scarves on..its still a calender winter. When we went for lunch, there was nearly 2 dozen people bundled up in there winter gear, sitting on the patio's of the restaurants drinking there pints of beer and Ceaser cocktails...and honestly, if Bunny wasnt with us, the Mister and I would have too....We're so Canadian! I love it! That season between the end of winter and begining of spring is the Canadian patio season, and is one of my favorites!
Ive been working with a client for a while now, trying to find her the most perfect bedside tables ever..Finally, she found some: These.
Unfortunatly, these were already sold and on there way to Lethbridge.....so I kept up the hunt and finally, finally found THESE:
*Picture "borrowed" from previous ower*
She LOVED the blue of the first set of tables, and had a duvet cover from (ekkk! my very favorite) Anthropology so even tho she invited me to use whatever colors I fancied and no holds bar'd, I knew that going with the blue she loved was perfect!
Once I stripped the old, muggy varnish off, the grain if the wood on the spindels was bea-u-ti-ful, and I couldnt bring myself to paint over it..so I re-stained in my favorite dark walnut!
Also, my client is married...and he appears to me like a manly-ish man, like my own...so altho, I couldnt help but add these flowers to the top in a shade lighter than the rest for suttlty (is that a word??), I knew that the large clunky flower pulls (just like these) I wanted to add, would just put these tables over the Women's Pretty Vs. Man's Pride edge..I even asked The Mister what he thought and he told me the same thing. Normally he doesnt give his imput into my projects, so when he does..I listen and he was exactly right.
Now, afterwards, I think the stone is PERFECT in combo with the natural wood legs.
A lil distressing, a lil antique oil glaze and these babies are ready for there new home.
