I can't believe I am going to show you my family room in process! Please remember it is in process! I am still trying to decide what to do and how to bring it together. Also remember this is real life and I have two teenage boys to pick up after (or nag them until they do it)!
I have been working on this dresser.
It is now painted with some distressing and glazing. I am going to do the poly on the top and put the handles on yet. It is really bigger in the room than I thought it would be! I think I am going to watch for a smaller sofa as this furniture is way too big and I don't want the print in this room either.
I had two lamps ready to go on it and found that they were just too big and tall to fit there. So off to the thrift store I went and found two of these lamps for $2.50 each! They are rather yellowed and chipped some but I figured I could paint them up just fine and buy new lamp shades!
First I thought I would just try some glaze to accent the texture. So I just did one to see. What do you think?
I'm not sure if I like it. I am asking my blog friends for help. Should I paint them or does the glaze look fine? In our family room, I am going for an eclectic mix of traditional, rustic, french country with some old world thrown in along with it! Doesn't quite sound right but I am hoping to pull it off!
So tell me what you think! To paint or glaze or both??????
