Sometimes silence speaks loud and clear.
I refinished this Anthropologie 'Sura' inspired dresser, (who's first life landed it in a dusty thrift store) ,last August and it slept through two Sweet Clover Barn sales, and months on Craigslist. Despite lowering the price, in all this time it has only received ONE serious inquiry, (but then the person asked us to not only take a chunk off the price, but deliver it 30 miles for free. What's going on in this world???). I had a better idea. The lack of inquires on this piece was screaming loud and clear.
I get it. Triangles aren't for everyone. And since the real estate in our single car garage packed with kids toys and lawn equipment is precious, precious, precious, I really can't afford to have a piece sitting for so long. So, I gave this piece another try with no looking back!
This time, a little toned down, but dapper none the less. :)
I used French Linen by Annie Sloan Chalk paint because I have always loved it layered over Old White. Since the frame was already painted Old White from my first makeover, I knew it would be fun to distress the French Linen enough to allow the Old White to peek through. And the contrast on the dark espresso stained drawers is just so rich. Gentle distressing just along the edges and corners instantly highlights the unique shape of the drawers, without being too much.
The best part of getting to do this piece again? Styling it again!!! I had a blast styling this piece this time around. French Linen is really fun to work with because it plays so well with a variety of colors! I've seen it work beautifully with vibrant blues and even chartreuse! Since I'm trying to sell this one fast, I kept the styling relatively neutral but still fresh and modern.
Available once again in the DC metro area!
