Well with Halloween parties and costume shopping and decorating oh my, I’ve been running crazy. But I picked up this dresser at a garage sale across the street from the kids school a few weeks back. I used some of my homemade chalk paint it in a color as close to the ASCP Paris Grey as I could manage. You can read all about that experience over at Type A Decorating. It turned out so cute.
However when I first finished painting it seems very flat. Like primer. It just had absolutely no depth. So I used another color I tried mixing to match the duck egg. A little bluer and lighter but still very pretty. The grey and the blue/green went so well together!
Something in the room was throwing off the colors in my photo’s so excuse that some look grey and some look taupe! They are grey. I wish I had taken some even closer up so you could really see the words but it sold faster than I could get a good quality photo shoot with it.
I wrapped the ugly brown knobs in jute. I wasn’t sure after the first one if I was going to like it but it really added the texture that it needed since it was such a flat piece. Apparently I’m not the only who thought so! It was gone in four days.
Hope everyone has a great Halloween weekend and don’t forget to go link up to the VIP party!
