What is black and white and red all over?


Just finished up this Broyhill console/dresser piece last night! The insides were done with Annie Sloan’s Emperor’s Silk, the body in Old White and the hardware & top in Graphite. When I found this at the ReStore, I was hoping I could salvage the top and re-stain, but it didn’t work out that way. I actually got the black and white idea from my Mom who did something very similar a few months ago. You know what they say about imitation! In her honor, I name this piece Bethy. Here’s B at the ReStore (I really need to remember to get better before pictures)
1Here’s B in the shop with her top hangin’ out & her drawers off (hey this is fun)

2Here’s Bethy all gussied up (please ignore my cell phone quality pictures/messy TV room)





7What do you think I should do for my next piece? Stay safe with Old White or go big with a dramatic color?

All my love,
