As thrilled as I’ve been to get past Christmas and get the decorations cleaned out, I have to admit this week has left me in a post-holiday, exhausted funk. I think I slept more from the 26th through the 30th than I have in months. I really needed something to get me moving again. Exercising to one of the many DVDs I have would’ve been cheaper, but instead I got on Craigslist and found this cutie.
I kinda liked the green, truthfully. It already had the rustic look I usually work so hard to achieve. But the top was a little nasty, so an overhaul was necessary.
I debated a while about color, and finally went with ASCP Aubusson with Paris Grey for the detail. I love the Aubusson blue and have a lot of it in my house. It’s got enough gray in it to be almost neutral, and looks very sophistocated. With the dark wax, it looks very rich.
Yes, it was a wild New Year’s Eve at the Greene’s! (I did break for fireworks and hot chocolate.)
With dark wax, of course. I’m loving the knobs. They’re made of carved wood – I thought they were grungy brass until I cleaned them up.
Happy New Year! I might work out today.
