This past mother's day I was fortunate enough to have my husband take me to the Brimfield Antique Show. The trip was a success, I found some great things and one of them was a beautiful antique armoire for a steal. The piece was originally very dark, maybe even too dark. I finally tackled the project of painting and distressing it, something I have been putting off because of our big move and other projects popping in and out. Well enough jibber jabbering, here it is!
At first I wasn't sure what to do with the drawer pulls because I couldn't remove them for painting and I really didn't want to keep their original color because it was quite dark. My husband just simply said "Just paint them". Why was I stressing out when he was right, all I had to do was paint them and then distress them a bit. I am such a bad blogger because every time I tackle a project I always realize I didn't take a before shot, I am going to try and get better at this.
I love mirrors, especially beveled ones, and to be quite honest, if this piece didn't have the mirror I probably wouldn't of even fallen in love with it.
Distressed in all the right places....
So romantic and pretty
And to end things I had to take a shot of the euro shams from Rachel Ashwell's shabby chic collection at Target. I think that is the first aisle I go to whenever I visit Target, and then I forget what I was really "supposed" to get. I hope you all have a great day. Big Hugs!
