If you recall, my neighbor Mona has been filling my garage with projects to paint. (thank goodness my hubby isn’t home to see all my mess) The latest makeover was a dresser she wanted to repurpose as a sideboard. And what a smart idea! This piece is big – really big. It’s long and the perfect height for her dining room. It provides extra storage, and looks pretty darn great with her dining set and decor.
I wish I had thought to take a BEFORE shot – but in my haste and excitement to start painting, I forgot. Sorry folks – I know I forget a lot. But, I can tell you it was a mid-tone brown stained oak. Mona asked for it to be painted in Annie Sloan’s Paris Grey, with Old White details. And she said she wanted it really shabby. Like lots-of-distressing-and-dark-wax-shabby. So, here she is…all prettied up and making me start the Craig’s List hunt for one for myself!
I love the old black and white family photos sitting proudly on this vintage piece of furniture!
The grey looks so pretty against the yellow wall!
Thank goodness for Frog Tape – I taped off all the edges and got such a great crisp line – no bleeding!
