Such a TALL order for such petite style of furniture! How do you give life to a style of furniture that lived only in The Depression Era. A time in life where people scrapped together random pieces of wood to create a functional dresser or headboard or table, or…so on and so on…
Color and design come to mind. Not just any ol’ color. Once again Heirloom Traditions Paint Company to the rescue! Our color palette: Peppery, Quite Coral, Verdant, and Synergy, with an all-over Glaze Dark Antiquing Patina!
A Jester inspired theme came to mind. Fun, Whimsy, Magical, and Bright!
Stripes and diamond patterns were added. Detailing the designs on each piece helped bring out the “magic” Tracey was searching! To complete the look, it was distressed with a generous amount of sanding then an all over glaze of Dark Antiquing Patina, also from Heirloom Traditions Paint!
This set, with all its color and pizazz turned a corner and has new life!
I’d love to hear what you think or any other feedback for future posts or stories. Enjoy! I’ll be back next week!
