Hi Everyone I've been bad about writing my life is too crazy right now. I have been doing some fun painting work so I will be posting some great examples soon. Today I just want to do a quick post to show an example of what a great color can do to change a crappy piece of furniture into something lovely and useful. I could kick myself for not getting a better before shot to show how un-special this cabinet is, you get the idea I think.
I love the color cornflower blue, it is a color people forget about. But I don't, I have my girls room in this color and I love it for furniture. Is it blue or is it violet - let's argue about it!
Here's the after shot. It just pops, the color is so great and it makes the piece look clean-lined and simple.
|yes it needs a new knob|
|is it blue or is it violet|
Now I want to just for fun add a list of Nat's suggestions for a summer party - in feeling is what I'm going after. Here's my list.
Make a cocktail
Dance to something funky (even alone)
Get near water
Cook something spicy
Go on a roof top
Do something creative
Trust me, all of the above will make you happy. Now if you have an courage you can add to my list in the comments below. I know this is a design diary so most people don't comment and that's o.k.
