Now and then, I’ll hoof the 2.58 miles to work and home again and lo and behold what do my wandering eyes see as I was trying to race a storm home last week? The companion mid-century piece to my credenza at the consignment shop now painted. Lots of discussion has been had since I posted the final result from my credenza and my complete inability to bring myself to paint it. And I soooo badly wanted to.
Here is the companion painted in a pleasing Tiffany Blue and white (which I was leaning toward originally with tangerine on the inside and leaving the doors and drawers in the natural wood). They changed the amazing original knobs to something more contemporary, which I personally think is a CRIME. But, that’s me and my desire to reclaim the past for the future.
For my fellow lovers of painted furniture, I invite you to my esteemed blogger friend’s blog. You will be INSPIRED! See Found this, Painted That, she’s amazing, and is constantly encouraging me in my decorating endeavors. Hers is a blog you never want to miss.
So, what are your thoughts on painted vs unpainted? And feel free to note and comment on the amazing bright orange mid-century ashtray with cigarette holder, AND the old red radio and antique hand carved duck decoy twinsie and I found on our amazing trip together. ❤ Love! See Trippin’ with Twinsie
