Quick, get the camera and move the dog out of the way! Put something on top… anything! The light pours into my favorite window and makes photography easy on mornings like these. I don’t have sophisticated camera equipment (yet) or time to set up a complicated shot, so I need to seize the moment when the sun cooperates.
Although mid century furniture isn’t my favorite, I’m thinking every house needs one piece like this to provide a nice visual break from the stuff that clutters our lives. This piece is so straight and clean that all it needed was a super clean paint job. The drawers were left as is. I didn’t even clean them. We’re not sure if we’ll keep it… I’m trying to convince my son that he needs it for his clothes by pointing how close the color is to Pittsburg Steelers yellow. He’s not buying it and would rather use the space in his bedroom to shoot hoops on rainy days!
Paint used: Benjamin Moore Advance in Spiced Mustard. I lightly sanded and primed it and applied three coats of the yellow. No sanding was necessary between coats and if you take a look at my close-up shots, you won’t see brush marks. That’s why this paint is so wonderful.
Linking up to these great parties:
