Do you remember my visit to ChromaLab?
Here are the two pieces I took to them for makeovers:
And here is the result:
And for the tilt-top table:
Am I happy? Yes. Did we absolutely rescue these two tired, ordinary pieces from the Goodwill pile (or worse)? Yes indeed.
And, what’s more, the blue table goes perfectly with the new duvet cover I just bought last week (Pottery Barn). I had my eye on this cover for maybe six months, waiting for it to go on sale. No such luck. So I just DID it, and bought it with two shams. Again, am I happy with this? Yes indeed.
The walls had been a pale, sort of dirty yellow. Now they are BM Palladian Blue. I recommend it highly: a medium, grayed blue that is very peaceful and serene.
The question I ask myself is: where in the world did the BLUE thing come from? I have never, ever used blue in my house! My first loves are still yellow and red, but blue in the bedroom? Not too bad!
