But it was pretty dinged up
So I thoroughly cleaned it out,
Almost everything in this room is brown, black, tan or white, so I had thoughts of maybe painting it black. That would be safe. That would be an easy choice. That would be boring.
I had turquoise in the back of my mind, since that would be a statement color. Not safe. Not an easy choice. Definately not boring.
It went from this pecan color
(BTW, as many photos as I took of this piece, I could not capture the actual color. It is a little darker and more of a true turquoise rather than the lighter blue you are seeing in some of these photos.)
I glazed it quite a bit to give it some depth
We’ll see. It may end up being my favorite piece of furniture.
You can’t go wrong with tarnished silver and vintage dogs.
