There are times when I buy a piece of furniture and I look at it and think why did I buy this ugly thing? Those times when I don’t “see” it. I know it’s hard to believe. Usually I can see a piece of furniture before I’ve even started.
I bet half of the people reading this currently have or have had this set as part of their furniture at one time or another. I first started out by cleaning this piece. It was so filthy that when I finished cleaning it I had to throw the rag away. Nastiness.
I decided to step out of my box on this one and use two colors. I don’t usually do this because it can be tricky for many different reasons. I’ve seen pieces done in two or more colors and sometimes it’s a HOT MESS!
I started applying the paint before the piece was completely dry
because I am extremely impatient because I wanted to see if I could create a weathered distressed crackly look. And then BINGO as it started to dry I got just the look I was after. I LURVE it when that happens!!!!
On top of all the success I had with the paint, when I finished the sun was just setting and completely perfect for photos!!! I love it when a plan comes together.
