|note: Change chair and ottoman to a one piece chaise lounge. The 2 piece is too large. Move armoire down to make the room feel more open.|
START OF [RE]DESIGN!
|Here are some great pieces that I was able to keep and work with... the chest was hiding behind her bed! Amazing piece... especially when I paint it black!|
|The mirror was a friend of hers and has special meaning. I love the frame and knew that a coat of gloss black spray paint would give it the modern glam look we were going for!|
|Rust-Oleum and I have a very special relationship... I can always count on it for budget conscious projects! I love it.|
tip: Always use Primer Spray Paint first- 2x Ultra Cover is the BEST!
|Primer Spray Paint first and let dry.|
|As I waited for the primer to dry on the furniture I moved onto this piece of art. My client loved the beach scene but was willing to change the frame...|
|Looks great and the lavender colors in the painting stand out even more.|
|I planned on using a black matte for the accent table but when I saw the sample paints that my client have purchased for the Master bathroom I figured why not get some use out of them.|
|We picked a gorgeous "dusty" lavender color for the master bathroom and had all of this sample paint left over... so I used it!|
|We both loved the accent table and the jewelry box in the different shades of lavender. The looked very vintage chic against the black modern frames.|
|When I got the accent table out of storage I said, "we can paint this and change the hardware." But now that the piece is painted I love the rabbit handle... it stands out now.|
|The hidden chest... stunning in black!|
note: I am going to place this in front of her bed... she can put extra sheet and pillows in it for storage. AND it's a perfect table for her tray when she gets breakfast in bed!
|I am so excited to get these pieces back into the bedroom and finalize the look. (We put them in the garage to dry)|
note: I will have a follow up post when the room in complete...
TO BE CONTINUED...
|We also found these frames in storage. My client asked me if they were too traditional and that she'd be willing to get new frames. I said just the opposite... Take the art out and create an artless frame wall and paint the frames charcoal or maybe even the lavender shades from above, who knows... |
They are amazing!
If you are in Richmond this weekend come down to Shockoe Bottom and LaDifference for the first Shockoe Design District festivities!
