No. 15

Some pretty good wear and tear and knobs that were too small…but over all good bones.
No. 15 {before}

Now, she is per­fect and blue and scratched and stained and dented and beau­ti­ful. I mean, I warned you about this blue and all of it’s glory. Totally appro­pri­ate that No. 15 was {re}born in April.
No. 15

I found some extra large wooden knobs at our REstore and painted them to fit the piece. Never done that before. A whole new world…
No. 15

Yup. My toes.
No. 15

A lit­tle dis­tress­ing and a beau­ti­ful wax fin­ish. Also a first. Thanks Barb at Knack for tips on wax­ing! Love her!

15 even has a lit­tle vin­tage wall­pa­per sur­prise on the inside.…
No. 15

You can be inspired by color from ANYWHERE. Like, for exam­ple, some­thing that my favorite girl in the world wears.…
Boots

Yeah, my boots. She likes to wear them “like mommy does”. Oh and that is her “respon­si­bil­ity chart” on the right. I promise I am not psy­cho mom.

No. 15 is avail­able HERE. Go get her!

Cheers!

    I think it turned out great! :) I love some good large wooden knobs!

    I am paint­ing a piece really sim­i­lar to this in shape and color.….you will laugh when you see it show up in the blog world!

    • Barb– haha! look­ing for­ward to see­ing No. 15’s sib­ling :) You should use the same paper on the inte­rior– it is a per­fect match!

    I’ve just recently dis­cov­ered your blog and I’m addicted :).

    I love the way you trans­form your pieces and the com­fort­able style they all have. Any chance you could do a post some­time on aging fur­ni­ture? I’ve tried sand­ing around the edges and it just doesn’t do it!

    Thanks!
    Ramona

    • Hi Ramona, Yay! Thanks for vis­it­ing! That is a great idea and I will be happy to do a post on aging fur­ni­ture. There are lots of dif­fer­ent ways of doing it, but I will be sure to take some pics dur­ing my next piece and hope­fully post some­thing soon!
