a bit of freshening up 
in the pearl*haus
new bedroom drapes..
simple design.

cream * mustard * espresso * charcoal

i'm painting the bathroom vanity
this week. yep.. painting over that
atrocious 80s builder oak cabinetry.
bringing out the gray and cream
of Annie Sloan & Co.

I am going to paint my bathroom vanities this year too! Same reason! I am thinking of Old White with dark wax. I'm taking a painting class tonight, excited to learn some new things and gain confidence to tackle bigger projects!

Oh good, now you can be the trailblazer and tell me all your tips of painting over the oak before I give it a go! Pretty curtains, too!

Adrienne said...

Gorgeous! And when you're finished, please come north and help me do the same.

old white is my favorite color. i use it often!
make **sure** you mix the dark wax with the clear before applying it... the dark is dark. i mean, dark. i'd start with a 3 to 1 ratio of clear and dark respectively. so, 3T clear to 1T dark..if not less dark cuz you can always add TO but removing after it's applied isn't as easy. :)

i've painted SO much furniture with ASCP.. but this is my first go at cabinets. thankful i work in a shop that's a certified stockist of ASCP and the owner is the master of all things ASCP!!! will be taking pictures.

curtains are from IKEA. ;)

Pretty drapes, Sherry!

I know I'm new to your blog, but I felt the need to tell you that I enjoy every post when I visit you. Sad... happy... food.. or other... it's real and true and perfect the way it is :)


Sherry said...

i'm humbled by your sentiment .. it means quite a lot to my heart. :)

Sherry said...

the vanity's base paint is done.. whew!
now comes a bit of decorative paint, very
understated. just enough. hoping for a steady hand.
