Every so often even “I” need some inspiration. (tis true!)
While perusing for dresser painting ideas on Better After, (which is ALWAYS a good source!) I came across this great collection of salvaged/updated pieces from one of the featured artists. Take a peek!
This little dresser I just picked up is a PERFECT candidate for a ‘unique make over’. The single drawer pulls make it easy to ‘work around’ . Pretty much a blank canvas. I just can’t decide WHAT to do?!?!? OR if I’m even BRAVE enough to do a ‘wild’ paint job?!?!
This idea popped into my head as I drifted to sleep the other night. For the knobs I’d use some BIG oval wood plaques, and make them into letters for the painted on number words. I just got a totally “WTH?!?!?!” look from Michael when I asked him what he thought. I’m not convinced I’ll like the asymmetry of the numbers on the drawers. Might be too unbalanced for me.
I can ALWAYS just paint it white or beachy blue; change out the knobs. It would sell instantly. Little dressers always do. But I’m kinda itchin to do something different too! Better sleep on it a few more days. But we’re SUPPOSED to be getting a stretch of warm and sunny days and that’s PAINTIN’ WEATHER in these parts. So I can’t put it off for TOO long!
Last summer I broadened my painting repertoire with what I called my ‘Cabana stripe collection’. Remember this big boy???
It sold surprisingly FAST. I had so much fun painting all the striped pieces, and everything sold quite well. I have one little shelf (like on the dresser above) and a folding table left over from then. So I COULD bring back the stripes this year, but I really yearn to do something NEW. (new to me at least!)
Any thoughts? And new trends you’ve seen that I may have missed and should give a go???
