Eeeek. Im losing the light. Daylight savings and the Earth's tilt are taking my good lighting away for pictures. Its dark here now at about 5pm. I think I snapped these pics at about 3:30 and it was already so dark that they look really grainy and my wallpaper looks pink instead of white. So, apologies in advance for that.
I was really happy to do this piece after that crazy white mcm overhaul I did before. This was a wonderful, textbook project. I found this great Kroller piece which is solid wood and in fantastic condition.
I started by sanding down the entire piece , cleaning it, and then painting on a couple of coats of teal chalkpaint.
Its been a while since I did anything whimsical, so I added some vintage wallpaper from Eaton's to the top square detailing.
I used a very light shade of blue to fill in the recessed rectangle trim to add a little bit of extra visual interest.
I gave the entire piece a super-duper heavy distressing. I wanted this piece to look really aged and weathered.
