because I took this project on for a customer
days before I had to head up to LA
for the Gift Show set up...
I leave for that this morning as soon as I'm done posting this.
A full bedroom set with such a great original color
though pretty beat up
so it needed a do over!
Large dresser + 2 night stands + vanity + headboard
totalling 17 drawers to paint
I loved the original color
and I saw this headboard on Mad Men
in Don Draper's daughters room!
I'm also crazy for Mad Men!
I painted a quick coat of a mix of Louis Blue & Abusson Blue
then Home Plate by American Paint
(a new chalk/clay paint on the market)
went over that and sanded through
with a touch of silver in all the right edges
Jumbled up photos
because I had 3 days to paint and deliver this back to the customer
no time for a photo shoot on either end.
That's it...now I'm packing up my stuff and headed up to LA
where I'll be working until July 16th
Next post will be about that!
