Super snooze fest so I knew that this wasn't a "just paint it black or white" situation. So enter my crazy brain which schemed up chartreuse...
Along with some David Hicks "La Fiorentina" fabric I think these chairs are now the perfect punchy design element.
Think along the lines of:
The next before and after project has been in my own house, which is oft neglected in favor of client's houses or the shop.
You know I had been dreaming of black trim for our house. We have a lot of white walls, which I think is the key to doing black trim, and truth be told we have two dogs who shed A LOT and I was tired of seeing their hair all over the baseboards when I had just swept/vacuumed the day before.
So one night I decided to turn this:
Can you see where I still left a rag and the top to the paint can in the hallway? I have no patience.
I chose a high-gloss true black for the trim. Let me tell you, I'm LOVING it. However, it took forever to do just this hallway. Two coats, should have taped off. Like I said, no patience so I just went in and started free-handing all this trim. Also, I know you can't tell in this photo but I layered black over that green wall so that some of the green is still showing through and it's actually quite pretty. That was a happy accident.
Do you have any weekend makeover projects? What are you dying to try?
