A punch of red can elevate the energy of a room and feed that same energetic passion to the the space. While many would go neutral when faced with indecision...I tend to go bold & red is so universally loved that it is always a winner!
Are you a follow your intuition or a follow the rules person?
I am such a follow the rules person, except when it comes to my art . This buffet had the usual scratches, dings, and bumps that made it's past owner ready to get rid of it rather than take on a makeover project. I was over the moon excited by all of the details.
Her journey has been anything but ordinary. I actually have had to make her over twice now due to some chaos on her last adventure. We will start with her first stay in our workshop.
In her small cubby drawer is stamped the name of the original owner. I just couldn't sand it out, if a stamp were left on her heart then it seemed it was not mine to remove. I was drawn to her size, taller and longer than many I have worked on. Estimated to have been made in the 1920's. The front legs were beautiful & the diamond detail on the front of the drop down desk top was a beautiful touch that allowed me to highlight some of her original finish. It just had a warm, sophisticated feel to it.
