I have made a few little changes in the dining room , I took a few hours today and sanded off the blue paint of this old dresser I am using as a side board . The veneer under the paint was beautiful and there is even an inlay but it is in terrible shape so I just sanded it down smooth. I wanted to create a worn out look, nailed it ! ha ha
Now I know why it was painted by the guy who sold it to me. It was $60 and I love it still , the drawers are in perfect working order and I love the legs and the lovely wheels , and now I love its charming character.
We loved how the dresser wood compliments the chandelier and the mirror wood compliments the two x back chairs.
A look back at the lamps and dresser before.
Can you see how the bulkhead above the windows and the fact that the window is so close to the back wall , this is making for a tough decision for me as far as draperies. I want drapes and I have 4 windows in this room , I'm thinking I will have to do roman's on the side windows and drapes on the front windows ...
So back to normal tomorrow , back to school for both girls . I will have more time to do some client work and hopefully some projects around here. Summer has been great , the weather has never been better . I am a summer person for sure , I will miss it .
