Before I show you the latest piece I finished, I just wanted to thank all of you for the love and support you showed me! I truly appreciate all the nice words you sent my way, you guys are amazing!
It’s been crazy this past few days trying to finish to0 many projects at a time, shopping for new pieces to be transformed, working late hours at my day job…All I can do for now is dream of the day that I can do this (painting and blogging)full time, and not sit behind a desk all day..
Also, I am working on a plan, to try to get myself more organized and be able to post more often. I have so many ideas in my head, I have been taking lots of pictures while working on some pieces in order to make tutorials, all I need to do is to find time to actually sit down and write them.
Last week I went to my first vintage market..I know, its crazy, I cant believe I’ve never been to one before..I always wanted to, but never knew where they were..now, I know about at least four that will be held in the next couple of months..
I’m tempted and would love to participate to one, but I am scared…I just think I cant get the things done in time..I do not even know where to start even..I would appreciate all the tips that you guys can give me..what are some of the pros and cons..anything will help, really!
Last week I worked on a beautiful dresser that I picked up not too long ago from a dealer..It has beautiful details, and the design on the drawers kind of reminds me of a pineapple (???) though, but was missing a piece from the top..It was actually shorter in the back, I assume it had a mirror at one point, but now that was gone..So we had to get a little creative..we cut a piece of wood that we picked up from Home depot, leveled it, sanded, added wood filler to fill the gaps,more sanding and now you don’t even know what was missing a part.
The color I used is called Amsterdam from Benjamin Moore, and its a beautiful gray with enough blue to make it different..
The knobs are from Anthropologie, and I bought them with another piece in mind, but I decided this one is a better fit…for the finish I used stain and water poly..and I named it Josephine
