little thing was so fun to work on! I love working on antiques, can I say that enough?!
It started like this, what is up with those knobs? The guy I bought it from had some fancy name for them, like they were something special, who knows maybe they are. All I know is they were butt ugly!
It was hard (once again) to get an accurate colored picture. Why is that? I swear I look at all your fabulous blogs from all you talented women, how do you photograph everything so well?! I'm serious. Well anyhoo, it's a mustard yellow in case you can't tell.
The knobs went into the garbage, hopefully I didn't just give anyone a heart attack. In place I added my special glass knobs. Maybe they were worth a lot, but I wasn't about to leave them on and find out...I think I'm the most impatient person I know. I painted this Golden Bounty. I'm pretty sure that's the name of it, I'm too lazy to get up and look in my garage.
After I painted and distressed it, I added some glaze. I felt like it needed something extra and to tone down the yellow a bit.
And if it wasn't cute enough (haha), I added some fabric lining.
Look at this little keyhole. How fun is that?
Another piece down, about 10 more to go.... who am I kidding it's never ending. But I love it!
