Patti has brought several pieces of furniture for me to paint for her new beach house. She just has the neatest taste and it's always interesting to see what's next! And, her ideas are usually a bit challenging, but always turn out beautifully. Such a cute idea this was!!
This chest was brown and she wanted me to paint it to match one of her new bedrooms. A stripe!!! Oh no, that's never easy. Anyway, I did it!
The chest started out like this. And, it's the HEAVIEST wood I've ever worked with. She and I brought it into my house and, even with the drawers out it was unbelievably heavy. Like it was made out of concrete!!
Anyway, she was real happy when she saw the way I painted it. I kept telling her I might have distressed it too much and as she was coming into my house, she kept turning her head away so she wouldn't see it. Like "oh no, I don't want to look!". It was funny! Then, when she saw it she LOVED it and said it was exactly what she was envisioning. Whew, that was a relief because I really did think I might have done too much distressing. But if I had, all I had to do was touch up the places she wanted covered.
It's only paint!!
