Okay, so if you haven't noticed by now I HEART color. This is not a blog about all things white, black or neutral. I love those colors as well and I follow quite a few blogs about them, but I need COLOR!
Not to long ago I was looking for the perfect piece to replace the less than perfect piece I had...yep the little table by my entry way wasn't making the cut. It was too little and had hardly any storage. One more thing to know about me, everything has it's place and it better be in it!
This is when I found this beauty on craigslist and KNEW, yep I was that sure, that I had to have it. She even looked pretty good as is, but wasn't quite ME! I should have taken more pics of the steps I took to get her all beautiful but, I didn't. I could say I'll be better about it in the future, but we all know that's not true...lol
After a good a sanding, priming, painting with Bauhaus Gold by Rustoleum (yep, spray paint) and glazing with Ralph Lauren Coffee, this is what I had created! Color! And I sprayed the original hardware with ORB, who doesn't love ORB?
This is what she looks like now, I added a
few ton of stuff to her, and a new rug to bring in more COLOR. I'm also getting ready for Christmas, notice some of my decorations.
Even I am shocked when I look at this picture, but yes, this is my house when I moved in six years ago. A boring blank slate, I hadn't quite developed my designer side. I can't even believe it's the same house, or how I used to NOT decorate. Scary stuff.
Do you have any brightly colored piece you'd like to share? I would love to see it. Happy Decorating!
