A refresher: The Headboard
and the Before of this latest Baby:
Sorry for the crappy pic..K is going to send a better one..but until then..
Painted with Behr "White Down"..and 7 coats later, plus primer..she was cream
Lightly distressed and glazed with burnt umber
The handles are original and just needed to be cleaned with boiling water, vinegar and toothbrush while watching Oprah...then I spray painted them with oil rubbed bronze..the knobs are new and spray painted in ORB too..
Fabric lined drawers in a cream and blue diamond pattern to match the blue sidetables.
The top was stripped to bare bum wood, then re-stained with dark walnut. Then I treated it with beeswax and linseed oil as the final protective coat and to give it some luster..not shine...luster.
Also, when K came to pick it up today she gave me one of the nicest gifts ever! I LOVE homemade things and will choose homemade over mass made any-day ever over anything else all the time..so when she gifted me this from her brand new line called Indigo Finch, it made my day go from pretty great to simply wonderful.
all my favorite colors with "mother nature" design things too
I immediatly used this for my sunglasses..but then since I always leave those in the car, I switched them out for my glasses-glasses which usually float around in my purse everyday..I ALSO texted her 5 minutes after she left and asked if I could order a laptop case and a case for my Ipod too..both of which I travel with all the time. The laptop gets toted around 2-3 times a week to the tea house or coffee shop while my Bunny's in her extra circular and my ipod lives in my purse 24/7...Cant wait! Cant wait! If anyone is interested in "Indigo Finsh cases..email me and Ill forward you over to K! They are so perfectly adorable and well made!!
Up next, the highboy to this set..the final piece...Stay tuned.
