Luckily I've scored some decent colors (I am kind of picky!), and earlier this summer found a gallon of light gray and quart of purple. I used the gray as a primer coat on the front door I scored, mainly to cover up the red that doesn't quite go with the house color. The door still hasn't been hung, but we're getting closer.
There are two pieces that needed a little face-lift now that the two rooms have been painted: my dresser, and a shallow shelf that is going to go in the guest croffice. The gray was perfect for both pieces and against the room wall colors, and the purple was a good accent against the gray for the dresser
DresserThis dresser has been in my possession for a while now. It traveled from CO when I moved back from Durango about 9 years ago (holy mackerel - it's been a while!), and I can't remember if it was in my room at the house there or if it was one of the roommates.
|The dresser was kind of a purple/blue color.|
Not bad, but not great in the newly painted room
|Clean and fresh looking|
Jelly Jar ShelfThe jelly-jar shelf was a free score off Front Porch Forum last spring. It needed some work on the bottom where the wood had started to rot, but was in good shape the rest of the way up. I hadn't done anything with it, and it moved around the garage and back porch until this fall when I decided that I would use it in the guest croffice once the rooms were moved around and painted.
|I loved the color. . . but alas, it didn't go with the room.|
|Good-bye rotty bottom|
(OCD friends, please ignore the less than straight cut,
I'm still new to the power of the circular saw!)
|Ready to for the room!|
