The only thing new is finding out about something. Like nothing's really new, but you reinvent it for yourself and find your inner voice. - Mike WattAs I'm out hunting for a new piece of furniture, I'm able to reinvent it for myself and for others. I'm not always the only one with an inner voice. More often than not, I really connect with the piece of furniture and it dictates what I should do.
Last week, I was painting an incredible chair that I found at an estate sale. I originally decided to go for a light grey, so I mixed Annie Sloan's (AS) Paris Grey and Antique White. I literally painted the entire bottom of the chair when I realized that the chair wanted to be a stronger grey. I ended up stripping the whole bottom of the chair which turned into a long process because of all the nooks and crannies. I've now primed it with a bright white and will be repainting it AS's Paris Grey. What can I say? If a chair that's been around as long as this one has talks to you, you listen!
I used to laugh a bit when I read posts where people were waxing poetic about their cameras. Well, now those same people can laugh at me. I take pictures with my Canon ELPH Powershot Camera, and you can really tell! Regardless, I'll post some pictures of my current projects in the next day or so.
