Today is an exciting day. I finally get to reveal a little project I have been working on. A while back I partnered with Farrow and Ball #finditpaintitloveit campaign. Numerous design aficionados have scoured the world for gorgeous flea market items and refurbished them with F&B paint and wallpapers. The collections are absolutely lovely so of course I was beyond excited to take part. Here is my beaming beauty...
I found this dresser at a flea market for $100. I literally think it might have been my best find ever. It's so well made, its signed on the inside of the drawers (which proves quality & craftsmanship), and the curves on this girl are just gorgeous. I love the marbled wood look that was on the dresser before and the motif in the center, but I think it was lost on the piece. The gorgeous gold hardware just faded into the background. I felt it deserved so much more. I went with Farrow & Ball Wevet paint in full gloss, to give it a bit of that wet look. I knew the stark white would highlight all the lines and it did!
The only thing about the white, you can see the imperfections. Although, there is something about imperfections that I actually like and I'm hoping that over time, more happen. I sort of like that worn look. It reminds me of Paris. I also put up the tapestry piece I scored while at Round Top this Spring. I really bought it for the gold frame with black velvet trim and thought about changing it out for a mirror. For now, I like it as art for the bedroom, its very romantic. I'm all about vintage art.
