But these are how my obsessions are born - I've never learned that Less is More as you all know by now -
I always have to take it just one step - one little step over the top.
This was just a tiny test - because after I'd painted the gingham pattern doors in the guest room - an idea was born - and since most of my " stock " of furniture to paint is in storage while we renovate - I used what I had on hand.
I'd love to do a gingham painted dresser for a child's room - or nursery so I grabbed the only piece I had that could accommodate it - the dresser in the guest room
Just a little on the 2 top drawers - a subtle touch really - with such huge impact in my humble opinion.
( and it really just may be only my humble opinion which is why I'm putting it out there - it's for advice more than anything - yours to be exact )
Does this scream little country nursery dresser - or does it scream for help - as in
" PLEASE SOMEONE - GET THE PAINT BRUSH OUT OF THIS LADY'S HAND " ?
I have one small project left in this room and I'm done - and here I am adding things to it that really don't need it at all
( I think I'm bone weary - and can't face the next room I have to go into - which is a nightmare - truly a total nightmare ) so I play in here almost daily instead.
BUT having said that - I really do like this little change to the dresser
and I'm wondering.......................
Do you think this would be marketable?
Would someone want this as a changing table ( it's NOT for sale - but another one could be in the not too far future )
Wanna see why I'm hanging around this room for so long?
This is the next reno I have to tackle
OMG - I can't believe the way I'm living LOL - if you knew me in " real life " you'd know how unbelievable it is to imagine me in this setting but..................that's the way it is ( for now )
This will be my " boudoir " ( hopefully ) and I start on it next week.
Someone has actually slept in this space - it's really only messy - other than paint paint and more paint it's not that bad! ( and they slept on the other side of the room which is cleaner LOL )
( UPDATE - room makeover HERE )
As soon as I can drag myself out of the little guest room -
And the gingham
Oppa Gingham Style - sexy lady.......................
