In between going out of town twice last week and hosting Easter Sunday dinner, I finished the chest in the sunroom. There are still a few touch ups to do but for all intents and purposes, it’s done. I took the quart of paint back to the paint store to have it tinted a little darker cause I wasn’t really happy with the first color I used….it was just too light. I found a beautiful lamp at T.J. Maxx and took the finial to the paint store so I could have the paint tinted to match.
Here’s the gorgeous lamp!
And here’s the chest! The color is a little light in this picture it’s not blue at all but a beautiful turquoise. I will probably replace the pulls but for now I’ll just use the original ones.
Love the way the dark walnut stain on top turned out.
I put a few things on the top but I’m sure this whole arrangement will change before I’m through. I’m still undecided on a wall color but at least I’ve narrowed it down to 2-3 colors. And I haven’t had time to work on the drapery panels at all.
This weekend we are going to my sister’s in Talladega for the annual April in Talladega tour of homes. That evening we will go see Three On A String….who I hear are fantastic!
