With Vintage Market Days Asheville fast approachingI have been working ever so steadily on my stockpile of furniture pieces. It is not an assembly line, mind you. I have plenty of pieces to choose from and I’ve started in plenty of time. Someone please be so kind as to gently remind me of these facts in oh say, about a month:)
Here’s my next victim:
I’ve really grown to love these simple vintage maple chests and dressers.
This one had me at the sweet little detail down at the feet.
I’ve painted a handful of these and they have been simple, humble and solid pieces of furniture at really good prices. I think they are often overlooked in the resale/Craig’s List/ yard sale market due to these simple, non antique/ornate facade. The china cabinet in my last blog post is also a simple maple.
All the better for a girl like me.
For this sweet, simple dresser I had something in mind. I want a color found in Spring. I wanted the pale blue of a robin’s egg. Alas, I had none in my paint cabinet so I made some 🙂
I mixes 3 parts Annie Sloan Duck Egg with 1 part Old White and I LOVE what I got!!!
Not so simple and humble now.
My homemade robin’s egg blue seems to elevate this dresser to almost elegant and graceful. The is another perfect example of what you can find at D.Lawless Hardware.
For 99 cents each 🙂
Im. In. Love. With. This.
these three ring pulls I found in my Hardware Hoard. I had actually forgotten about them but the go perfectly with the bails from D.Lawlwess. I’m not usually too keen on brass I think it really seems seems to suite this dresser.
The lamp we found down in Georgia while hitting a few Antique and thrift stores last weekend. It is a heavy cast iron piece and it is also going in the Market pile. It came with the linen shade, believe it or not!
I can promise y’all that this color will be going in my arsenal.
Blogs I love!
