Meet the new workshop. It’s pretty much the same as the whole workshop - but it's the main reason for my blog radio silence for the last 2 months. Since April, Caleb and I have been in the throes of moving into a new rental townhouse (pics of that to come I promise!). Besides the usual packing/ unpacking, we've been putting a lot of sweat equity into the new place (huge shout-out to my paint crew AKA Chelsea and fam!) which has also entailed aking a crash course in drywall to transform the unfinished garage into a suitable new workspace.
Finally, we’ve got most of the major projects done and I can start accumulating inventory again - starting with this one!
I asked you on Instagram if I should paint or restore and got mixed results so the people pleaser that I am, I decided to do both ;)
Sometimes I can’t bring myself to paint beautiful wood that’s still in good condition.
So instead I re-oiled the drawer fronts and did my new favorite take on two-tone and painted the outer surfaces.
Yes you called it - I used my favorite “Black Boudoir” by Behr yet again. I mean just look at how moody and inky these other pieces turned out?!? It’s hard not to like.
This extra-long beast has sx drawers and a cabinet in the center with three shelves.
The interior shelving make it an ideal media center or TV stand because you can simply close the cabinet door when you want to hide your electronics.
I had a hard time deciding what to do with the knob on the center cabinet door. The original pull was a fancy floret and read a little too traditional. After a quick poll on social media, I decided to go with the clear winner - an antique brass knob that has similar contemporary lines to the unique wood pulls on the drawers.
I'm in love with the organic lines of the pulls and the Mid Century Modern tapered legs!
This piece’s styling is brought to you by my dad’s vintage record collection (which heavily favors Bruce Springsteen I might add).
And for a touch of brass - my favorite little “pocket change” tray.
More pics to follow of the rest of our new place (but please let me get back into a cleaning routine first!) - ha! #letsbereal
