Red and Aqua

Good evening!! Usually I try to get this post up in the morning but the day got away from me, seems like that is how summer days go. Also it doesn't help when you have a crabby six month old. :) All that aside I want to share with you a piece of furniture that I recently finished. I decided to paint it red, which in my eyes was a huge transformation, but of course I wasn't content with that. So I wanted to antique it with some light blue paint, or aqua. I love those two colors together. I then took some old vintage wall paper that I purchased at the flea market this spring and put it on the top. When I put the paper on the top I decided I liked it better without the railing so I left that off to update the piece. Last but not least I added a pull to the front because when it was missing when I bought it. I think the finished product came together well. I can't wait to do my next project with the same two colors. I think they complement each other. I hope you have a fabulous night!!

  6. Pretty! Love the color you picked! And it's so hard to get things done with your little one to take care of, so great job getting some crafts done :)

  7. Love this! It would look wonderful in my son/daughter's room (poor kids have to share). I would never have thought to antique it with aqua. Brilliant! Great job.
