No. 15 {blue & ivory}

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….

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!

    • 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!
