The “soft landscape dresser”, as I’ve been calling it, is finished!
I had to struggle my way through it a bit, but I’ve learned that’s often the way it is with new creative endeavors. My first venture into sewing, my first refinished dresser, my first blog post…they were all a learning process. And let’s not even talk about the first time I attempted upholstery!
Anyway, I pushed through and I really love how this one turned out.
And I like how the chippiness brings some softness and a sense of age to the paint.
You can find the details on the before, colors used, and how the landscape progressed in these posts…
I have purchased a few blank canvases and I feel like I might be ready to finally put a brush to them. Furniture feels a bit safer to me, if that makes sense! When you put paint on a canvas, it’s “art”. When it’s on a piece of furniture, well, I’m just painting a piece of furniture and that’s something I do all the time!
My mom has called dibs on this piece, but I’ll let you know if she changes her mind!
Speaking of upholstery, I plan to start working on the deconstructed chair next week…
