This past week was extremely busy for me. Hunting and gathering at estate, garage and city-wide sales, an antique show, and my redesign yesterday. I'm still recovering.
So, I decided to take it a little easy and do some organizing and smaller redesigns today. As I worked, I realized that my paint color of choice and everything I sorted through seemed to be in various shades of white and cream.
The firescreen above was black when I got it. I gave it a grey/blue undertone and went over it with a white wash. I think the roses have more character with the multi-layering.
The frames in these shots.....
started out with this horrifying finish.
I'm sorry, does anyone out there like this speckled mess? I gave them a dark undertone, and did a worn white finish.
Here are a few items I picked up at sales this past week.
Love the florals on these two wall hangings......
and this vintage carrier, with architectural bits.
Another busy week ahead. My son graduates from High School tomorrow, and a pile of furniture awaits redesign, followed by more hunting, gathering...........
