It's the second Friday of December
and I'm supposed to write a post about furniture
when all I can think about is wonderful Christmas decorations,
white tinkle lights, and snuggling with my honey by a fire.
After much consideration and thought
I finally came up with something that just might interest
The color of the season
The first piece I ever did in red was a vintage radio
The hardest part was stripping all the guts out.
The inspiration for this piece was a mirror I had found earlier
that had a gentle white pin stripe.
The next one I had so much fun working on.
The top and sides were made of old plywood and I knew there was
no way to cover vintage plywood graining with paint successfully.
So I had to come up with a way to work with it.
I painted the dresser black before red then sanding it back
till the black came through and highlighted the graining.
The hardware I used were found on a curb side 70's monstrosity of a dresser,
much better on this rustic red barn
More recently I was commissioned to do 2 antique buffets for a pub
Both were painted with ASCP in Emperor's Silk
The first one I nicknamed BIG RED
The second I named MISS CHERRY PIE.
and if these don't get you in the spirit of the season
George and I would like to wish you all a fabulous Holiday Season
from Vancouver Canada and from
Till next year ...
