I painted today at Miss Jenny’s, in her sweet daughter’s room.They wanted a vintage feel with a modern twist. We worked together to come up with a custom color to match her new room perfectly.
Oh..this before picture is just awful. My flash was broken and I was shooting with my D70 that did not allow much light in to begin with. Oh well….it makes the after picture look that much better, right? As you can see, this piece was extremely dated. It has good bones though. It was a perfect pallette to created something new and fresh.
Jenny and I worked together to create a custom look, specific to her room. I started with a Country Gray base. Although you can’t really tell from the pictures, the detail is all done in a color called metallic taupe. It’s really pretty. I finished the hardware in this as well.
I distressed it all over, just on the edges and then finished it with some clear wax, tinted with a little bit of dark antiquing glaze.
Y’all, I’m so tired tonight I cannot even think straight to tell you anything else. I am sure this was all a bunch of gibberish anyway. AH…. It’s thundering outside……the perfect time to fall asleep. Night.
