Spring is on its way . . . right?!?
I’m not sure where you’re reading from, but where I am we have a full blown winter storm warning in effect. That’s right, snow, snow and more snow headed my way . . .
So naturally I’m dreaming about spring . . . and the beautiful colours that come with it.
Apron Strings to be specific 🙂
I mean seriously, how pretty is this little dresser?
And don’t even get me started on the hardware! I don’t always switch out the hardware on a piece, especially if I have all the originals. But sometimes its fun to add a little ‘bling to your things’!
As you can see from the ‘before’ picture below, I was missing a knob on this dresser . . . and they weren’t originals anyways.
So there’s a funny story about this dresser . . .
originally she was painted green . . .
You see I had started to paint this dresser at a Home & Decor show, showcasing how I could achieve an ‘ombre’ effect on the drawers . . . before I got around the finishing the piece a customer came by the studio and asked if I could paint it in coral so she could use it in her daughters nursery . . .
Well, yes. Of course I could.
And I’m glad I did!
Apron Strings looks great on her!
What do you think? Do you have a piece that could use a pretty punch of coral?
Has your vision or plan ever changed on a project half way through?
