Sometimes a colour change makes all the difference in the world. I may get flack for saying this but sometimes you need to paint the wood. Have you ever come across a piece of furniture and said that could be nice but man the wood just dates it or it has yellowed over time. I was contacted by a friend who was having a garage sale and had a piece I may be interested in but wanted me to have first dibs. I like this friend very much hahaha. She sent me a picture but I didn't see it until the day of the garage sale. Luckily I managed to get the cabinet. It was dated and yellowed. Her husband like many men I have met says “you just don’t paint wood”. I laugh at him. Well if I didn't paint wood I would be out of a job and I wouldn't have anything to tease him about.
My immediate reaction to this piece was quaint country, tea cups and pretty writing paper. There begins the journey of transforming the not so pretty secretary/china cabinet into a show piece.
I Have to Paint the Wood
