Eight years ago while visiting–and my niece was having her 1st little boy–I found an interesting dresser in one of their local thrift stores. Really solid, well made, $15. I bought it and painted it with blues and greens, the colors “LuLuChelseaBelle” wanted to use in the babie’s room. (I love to mess with my niece!) The dresser eventually passed on to son #2.
But Braeden is 8–today! Landen is now 4. And the cute “baby” dresser needs to grow up too.
So I partially stripped it, and changed it to something “Americana.” And finally got to use those spigot handles I found at the ReStore in May!
Something odd occurred to me while I was painting the red parts—I don’t paint with red. “Have I –EVer?– painted anything RED?”
So I started searching my memory for any project in red. Nada. I’ve skirted all around the perimeter of it with pink-poppies and magentas–but no red. Hmmmm.
I just don’t have a passion for the color. And I guess I’ve just sort of “eliminated” that particular color from my repertoire.
Is there a color that you “gloss over”–??
Btw–I’m hoping this revision will hold till he’s—10??
I’m sharing this part of the project with these linky parties—
