I posted yesterday about the student desk project
that I completed using APC Smoke Signal, a bunch of stuff on the top, and APC Dark Wax and Clear Wax mixed with APC Pewter Mica Powder–
I forgot to snap a peak inside the drawers, today I remembered-
Not sure why I like to stencil inside drawers, you know it will end up unseen as the drawers fill…
Maybe it’s that desire to add SOMETHING, but not wanting to add too much – if it’s hidden like this, it won’t be a deal breaker 🙂
A closeup of the knob I crafted…
and the flash gilded balls 🙂
Cute little writing pads ….
After I took the drawer pictures, I walked back into the workroom and noticed the cork board that hangs by our back counter – it was my daughter’s old beat up bulletin board that I’d painted Reclaim Mocha, and zebra’d in silver blend using a stencil –
I did that combo once before on a flip bench back and loved it
I thought it would be cool to add that to the drawer sides… The drawers were already painted a Mocha Reclaim blend, so I was 1/2 way there – I added a zebra print using a silver blend metallic to just the outer sides…
I just have to price it, always the HARDEST part!
Now I can move on to finishing something else that I’ve already started, like this table that needs some fun –
Something whimsical like this Stripe Console Table, a mere $3700. It would be interesting to see the transition of pricing for MacKenzie-Childs painted furniture. Did she start out more reasonable, and then soar? Or did she start out from the beginning with pricy prices?
or this 12″ x 34″ Dark ‘Tiny” Table, more affordable at $2350 –
I’m drawn to the randomness of these pieces – so many textures, patterns, mediums, mixed into one – look at that drawer pull! The beaded fringe, we’ve done that before on table edges…
And look, crystal knob looking feet. I’ve done that on a few pieces too – heck , I need to add a zero on the end of my prices! Just kidding 🙂
I’d read awhile back that MacKenzie lost everything and it was taken over and continued on – wouldn’t that suck? You started something, but hit troubled times, and lose it all, only to have someone else carry it on?
I have this pair of chairs to finish too – maybe something primitive for Karen 🙂
or this piece that I plan on doing a dirty grit white –
Maybe I should focus on finishing this table top that’s been kicking my butt??
I have this chair to start, it could go with the desk I just finished…. hmmm, that’s tempting….
Either way, I need to wrap this up and get to work – I still owe about 500 people emails, (Pat R I’m ON it this morning!) , and I pledge to do that not-fun job before I delve into the paints.
HAVE A FABULOUS, BLESSED DAY!
