So on my last post I showed you what I found on Craigslist FOR FREEEEE!!
Sorry still can't quite get over that. Makes me want to break out into song "Weee are the champions weeeeee are the champions" oh, sorry I do that sometimes.
It is a mid-century all wood dresser by Stanley with aluminum knobs.
I call it "my new holder of things from the kitchen so I can put in a dish washer" thingy.
As much as I love it, it needed some updating.
Soooo I said to myself "let's ombre this bad boy" and there was agreement all around.
I like when I agree with myself. :)
I knew I needed to do something with the clutter wall. But is was so convenient to capture people for hours just staring at that wall. But I am learning I don't have to expose everything to anyone who stumbles in. In some kind of information vomit on the wall.
But first the OMBRE', I just like saying that ombre
I got lucky and found some clearance paint with built in primer, in the color I wanted.
I already had lots of white from the bedroom painting furniture episode.
Truly can't be that hard,...can it?
Well it was harder than I thought it was gonna be and the light greys looked to similar.
Yeah, I then took out the light and turned it dark. muuaahahahahah
Yeah, that was looking a lot better.
But now how can I post about this, without the shame of the clutter on the wall.
Not to mention the wall color that hasn't been in my house for over 6 years, and didn't go with anything. Plus it had the constant reminder of roadkill or vomit color. Am I grossing you out? Sorry didn't mean to.
But not any more!!!
This is a cleaning up the clutter and making it look good TA-DAA!!
Oh yeah, so much better. I do realize the top is not painted yet. I seem to have a bad habit of only going to 90% finished and then getting around to the other ten percent a few months from now.
A little foraging around for the old window and minimizing the pics and phone numbers.
Total cost around 5 dollars for the paint.
Pulling a visually chaotic wall into harmony...priceless.
I even started to paint the feet on all my unfinished furniture.
And found this piece of art for 15 dollars to go between my lamps.
I like how it reflects the light and brightens up that dark area.
I also added new curtains that are the proper length and they are even lighter.
I can't wait to get this room done.
