Well, I’m here 1 minute before midnight, the end to a very busy week. I haven’t been keeping up with my promise completely…. instead of 2-3 posts a week, it has been more like 1 post a week, and kinda last minute. But I really am trying! I’m getting better! And I’m going to start planning my posts, so I have deadlines each week. I’m better with deadlines (even if self-imposed- ha!).
A few weeks ago I picked up this beautiful antique buffet from Craigslist. The guy was moving and had it a long time and assured me on the phone that it looked better in pictures (which I thought was such a funny thing to say!). It did need some work to make it sturdier (glue in joints, screws in some places), but other than that, the drawers were immaculate and nothing major was missing!
I had been looking for a buffet exactly like this for months for a client. She came to me awhile ago, sent me pictures of her bed and breakfast and described what she wanted. When I saw this, I knew it was right! And she agreed 🙂 It didn’t take long for her to decide on the mustard color of Chalk Paint named, Arles, with the interiors a dark red, which I chose to mean Emperor’s Silk.
