I am joining Miss Mustard Seed's Furniture Feature Friday and Funky Junk Interiors Saturday Night Special I have been busy this week working on our bedroom which has been neglected for awhile. And, the future studio. I did get one project completely painted in time for this week's party.
Some of you may remember this.
Beautiful as is, right? Well, I thought so too. The problem was I wanted it grey. And, I wanted it in our bedroom. And, it was missing some veneer. I started playing around one day after I was reading a favorite blog of mine, Peanut Petunia (you guys have met Susan, right?) And, she was talking about painting two chests to use as nightstands. Well, I have always wanted that, but I could never find the right pieces. Then, I got an idea. I told Mr. Hughes to watch Baby Hughes if he woke up from his nap too early. And, not to ask any questions. Then I locked the bedroom door (not sure why... he probably wasn't that interested in what I was doing.) Then, I moved around alot of furniture... and the 2 chests fit exactly how I wanted them to!! So, I left them like that until I had a chance to paint the 2nd one (one has been painted grey for 2 years.)
and here is what it looks like now
I still want to fluff the top and I am planning on adding fabric lining to the 2 tiny drawers just for my pleasure *wink*
Here is what the original chest looks like
Nope, they don't match. But, I don't mind. They are almost the same size and that is what really matters.
And, here is they look as nightstands
I am still working on our bedroom, so this is not the final look! On a side note, sorry for the quality of the photos... it has been rainy and sunny and rainy all day today.
So, now go look at all the other furniture transformations at Miss Mustard Seed and all the partygoers at Funky Junky Interiors. And, have a wonderful weekend and Halloween!
