Textured in Tiffany
Hey all! If you follow my facebook page then you may know that I’ve been participating in a bloggers contest. It’s called the “Fab Furniture Flippin Contest” and the theme is “Come on Let Your Colors Burst”.. I truly feel there’s a fine line between tastefully colorful and obnoxious. I would like to think I stay on the side of tastefully colorful because I LOVE color!! No one should fear color in their homes. I’ll start with the ‘before’ pic, it has such pretty details and curves. It has a bit of a regal look to it and at first glance, one would think to paint it neutral cream and maybe highlight with gold, or white and silver. BLAH! BORING!
I say no to neutral and decided she wanted to be textured in Tiffany! I have to admit I spent more hours on her than I had planned or hoped, but that happens sometimes. To draw attention to the drawers I layered and crackled and let a little color peek through. Under the neutral creamy white there are layers of blue and lavender. How fun!I used my neutral white as an accent color and made sure to bring attention to all the little details.
Isn’t the hardware gorgeous ?I made sure not to ignore the top, the large flat top. So I gave it a little texture … It almost looks like stone.
I won’t know how this colorful beauty does in the contest until next month .. wish me luck!
