The first thing I started on was this small and timid little TV stand.
I just wanted to give her a little personality, so I put her in Robin's egg blue, and did some heavy distressing. The little boutique we're in was looking for a little shelf to display linens in their baby section. I thought this would be perfect for the job. I couldn't resist putting in a little interest, with just a couple flourishes on the edges to show under the linens that would be piled on it's shelves.
It would be so easy. Just a flourish. Yeah right! It took me waaaay more time getting it right than I wanted. Than this little thing was worth. (Sorry little thing. Luckily you don't read and decorate). But I think I got it right... eventually. Actually I love it now, so we just have to wait and see if some cool momma will think so too.
So here is the first bit of furniture tackled. I added some new little white knobs, which I know should have been crystal, but sometimes it's just not entirely worth it. And I added some beadboard (textured wallpaper-- shhhhh) on the back of it.
So, as a result of a hot, late, Sunday afternoon, I have a couple more projects lined up, including a lovely drop leaf table to be painted a blank, warm white. See you round soon!
Oooh, wait! Forgot to tell you that this little momma is expecting a boy! Guess I've got something on my mind :)
