This has been a crazy week. We have been scouting out flea markets and thrift stores for pieces we can use in the videos next week. The plan is for me to take 8 different projects from start to finish over 3 consecutive days of filming. I just hope I can complete everything. I’m trying to make sure I have all the supplies and paint on hand that I need, and organize each project to show different techniques. Once all that is in place, I’m hoping my anxiety level will become more manageable. So today calls for a simple easy post.
I painted this old pine sideboard several months ago, but never posted about it. It was fairly beat up, and was about to be left for the trash, when a friend saw it and thought of me. (I can’t tell you how many times that has happened). The color was pretty much decided by the colors of Chalk Paint I had at the time, Antibes Green, with accents of Provence and Old White. One of those amazingly quick and easy jobs, not too many layers or details or trim to deal with. I love its simple charm and character, and also the fact that it provides great storage.
Some of my favorite pieces are primitive, and made from planks of pine or oak. If you love plain, unadorned, and vintage, you will want to check out these posts, Function and Beauty, Very Vintage, and Old Table, New Look
