You might have caught my last post with a similar white nightstand. White is always a wise way to go. I especially like a clean white look when there are busy carving going on.
Do you recognize this chair? It has had many looks but finally found a home. When I first got it, it was painted black, then I painted it a brick red to go with a nautical desk I refinished. Poor chair, no one wanted it. I was repainting it again and was worried the black and red underneath would look horrible with ASCP Provence. I decided I'd paint it white first and gently distress it to just show the white. I went too far in one spot and loved it. Thank heavens for mistakes. Speaking of mistakes. I finished painting and reupholstering the chair and asked my hubby if he'd screw the seat in. He decided to test the chair by sitting in it and wiggling back and forth to test it's durability. I kept telling him to stop messing around and knock it off. Somehow, he ended up breaking a leg off it while screwing the seat in. Go figure. I had to explain the situation to my client and tell her I'd find a new chair for her. Luckily she still loved it and with some wood glue and a very reduced price it's fixed! I guess it will just be for looking at and not for sitting :) Oh and be sure to check out my shop page by clicking the link at the top of my blog, I just updated it with some exciting new pieces!
