Another Before And After



Its a long weekend here at the moment...yay!!


I've been making the most of the beautiful weather we're currently having by doing some painting.
Well, namely this...




I don't come across beautiful drawers like this very often here, so I definately wasn't going to leave it behind when I found it recently.





I knew I wanted to keep it old looking, so I distressed and waxed it, left the same hardware - but chose a modern grey color to bring it up to date.


Here's what it looked like before...



and after again...





And a super close up of the finish...


 
I hope you are enjoying some nice weather too, wherever you are in the world!!

Happy weekend,

Hi Courtney! Thanks for sharing that great project you did with us. Hey, could you take some close up shots of the piece so we could see the details of the finish? I really like the way you styled the top by having the plant in front of an frame...so clever. I saw your post over at "Two Thirty Five Design".

Thanks for adding that last shot of a super close-up of the great piece, Courtney!

I absolutely love this piece! I have started following your blog. The light colored top is great and so different from the dark wood I usually see.
