So let me just start this post by saying this may be my last flip before baby H comes! What-the-wha??? I can’t believe I’m saying that - is this really happening?! I think she just heard me because she’s elbowing me right this very minute as if to say “Yes mom. Ready-or-not here I come.”
Since it could take a while for me to get back in the workshop, I do hope this flip will suffice for a while. Let’s meet this capsule project shall we?
He was a whopping $10 and had really only known life as a printer cabinet as evidenced by the shreds of hammermill paper wrappings and wedged paper clips in the drawers.
He was a little low but made of solid wood with good bones and I knew I really wanted to see it become something special. Between the drawers and the cabinet, he has a lot of versatile storage so I began to see him as something worthy of a suave bachelor pad or the glossy pages of a West Elm catalog…
You guessed it - I resurrected our old favorite inky blue/ black color “Black Boudoir” for a moody chalky finish.
I added some “jewelry'“ to this piece in the form of sleek finger pulls and brass tapered legs.
That hardware matches the gold gams perfectly. Yum.
Fun fact - those pulls were actually leftovers from this project.
The simple sleek design lent itself well to some more masculine styling so naturally I decorated with music and booze... bow-chicka-bowow!
I kept my favorite monochromatic formula of warm terra-cotta, a touch of leather, and some plant life. Oh and a simple nod to our first born… Thor. He doesn’t even KNOW what he’s getting into with a little sister on the way.
The interior of the cabinet has a shelf that could easily fit a tabletop record player when not in use. Or your good booze if that’s your thing.
And the large bottom drawer fits standard LPs.
So here he is! My last pre-baby flip (unless she comes late and I need to crank something out in hopes of inducing - ha!).
