Friday afternoon I called over to the wood finishing pro who is painting my furniture. He is almost done and is planning to finish & deliver it back to me by the end of this week. Here's what's happening:
The buffet is going from dark wood to an antiqued off-white. Hardware will be changed out to glass pulls & knobs (these are the knobs I've chosen. Aren't they unusual? I thought they'd look right at home on the new piece.)
The dark wood china cabinet will also be antiqued off-white, except for the interior back wall of it - that's being painted the same yellow as the walls in the room. The same glass pulls & knobs will be used here as what's going on the buffet.
The oak table (which I didn't really share here in its own picture) will be the same off-white as the buffet & china cabinet. There are 6 chairs and I'm having them painted different colors: two pale blue, two pale yellow, and two pale pink.
I'm so excited to see the results! This will be such a big change for my room, not to mention for the actual furniture. As you recall, I did a lot of soul searching about whether to embark on this project. But once I made the decision to go ahead with it, I haven't looked back. I'm happy that I picked up the phone and called in the experts to help me with it, too. This furniture is/was just too pretty to leave to chance (i.e., me). I will certainly post my pictures when I've got them!
