You hear me say "I'm so in love with this piece'' and ''I wish I never sold this one'' a lot on my blog. It's not because I admire my own work enough to flatter myself over and over. I mean, I do surprise myself sometimes but usually, I fall in love with these pieces before I ever buy or paint them.
I don't buy things that I don't like. I've heard ''..but you never know what someone ELSE will be looking for.'' and that is true. However, I want my business and my furniture to represent my style and what I love. So, I only buy piece that I would want in my own home.
This piece was no exception.
I don't usually shop on CL because it's so much hassle to find a good deal close to home on a piece that I love AND beat every other person to it. Not to mention pulling up to the unknown of a stranger's home (usually alone). However.., I've been desperate, lately, for some ''wow'' pieces and you know what they say about desperate times. So, Craigslist and I had a date and lucky me, I'm glad I gave him another chance.
I almost glazed or gilded with either copper or turquoise accents. I couldn't decide which product or color to use. So, I decided that I didn't have to decided and did neither =) and I'm glad I did...or didn't????
I like the simple distressing against black.
