Painting, waxing, and distressing every nook and cranny, when every nook and cranny is tiny, is very labor-intensive. Especially when you're a stickler for details like me.........
Took this pic with a Tiffany box,
just to show how close the colors are.
This was another custom color I mixed with homemade
"make-do" chalkpaint. Isn't this color a little piece o' Heaven?
So much detail work. I chose not to paint
the woven cane and the drawers,
because they both just looked too good in their natural state.
Some things are just better left without paint.
(Gasp! Did I, the painter, just say that???)
I would have done it anyway, but the distressing
really makes the rest of the piece cohesive
with the drawers and cane.
The only pain with this little lovely was the photo-editing.
Now that Oregon has a little something called Sunshine,
every time I blinked the color changed. It's amazing how much
a tiny hint of sunshine yellow can morph your colors,
as you can see by these photos.
Many members of the aqua family are present
in this one object, depending on where
and when you look at her.
I started her with a French theme in mind,
and now she feels a bit tropical islandy too!
Either locale suits me just fine right now.....:)
