I posted here about how I was painting a dresser for the entry. I wanted to update you on how that is going.
It looks a little splotchy in the photo. It’s not. Must be the photo processing. For whatever reason, it’s really tough to capture the exact accurate color of this piece. It’s sort of a slight navy with a metallic sheen.
Love her in a metallic blue. After sanding, I used what I had on hand to paint her – ceiling paint from the family room (blue) and some white pearl to give it a metallic sheen. Then, I finished it with a poly spray. How about a few more photos?
I’m playing around with the lamp and books, as well as the mirrors.
The sunburst is there as a possible thing to hang on that wall.
The vintage mirrors laying on the floor are also possible things to hang over the dresser, though I can’t find just the right configuration yet. And, ironically, the image below with just the bottom of the dresser showing may be the most accurate in color.
How was it before? Well, I was playing around with this chair.
But, decided on the dresser, as it flowed better with the surrounding rooms. Note, the entry door is to the left of the dining room. There is a hall between the dresser and dining room.
Again, here is the dresser.
How about a closer view of the paint color and metallic sheen?
What do you think? I still have work to do in the entry, clearly. But, it’s coming along! As we all know, this stuff doesn’t happen overnight, but how great would that be?!
