You may remember that this is what the wall looked liked after the new paint and accessories went up (and what the house looked like before we painted everything):
|Looking good, but I always thought something was missing...|
|Tell your boyfriend the color is CORAL and you can get away with|
a pink desk :)
Did you notice the CORAL desk though?
|My Grandmother would say "ohh, pret-ty, pret-ty!"|
I LOVE it! Since the rest of our house is pretty colorful, those colors start to feel like neutrals - the blues, greens, grays, teals - so this coral was just the pop I think this wall needed! I'm going to be painting the chair white I think - or maybe not? thoughts? I've had the chair for about a year now, so glad it finally found a home :)
This piece actually matches another piece we have in our living room that we painted yellow - same line of furniture for sure. The legs match, the drawer handles match, the little wooden applique at the bottom (which you can barely see) matches. It was meant to be in our house (and that's what I had to tell Tyler when he begrudingly came to pick me up from the thrift store since I didn't have a vehicle big enough to get it home. "Hi, um, can you come pick me up at the Salvation Army?"). And at only $20 for the desk itself and $12 for paint, I'd say we have a winner!
I did learn that you should always prime a piece if you're not sure where it's been. The paint didn't take too well to a few places so I was painting, then priming some spots, then painting again. It's a little rough around the edges and I left it that way
Now all I have to do is find some knobs I like - which is essentially trying to find a needle in a haystack. Wish me luck!
