What's Old is New
Jan 6, 2011
I think I'm finally conquering my inner OCD-ness. In the past, I would typically freak the freak out at the sight of distressed furniture, chipped dishes or anything but perfect symmetry. Having kids definitely helps, especially when they are kind enough to add their own distressing to the furniture. But thanks to many of you too, I've started to embrace things that are weathered, slightly shabby or imperfect. "It adds character!" is something I have started to believe rather than say through gritted teeth.
This bookshelf from Patrice at Duplicity Furnishings went through one heck of a painting process to get it looking that bad (as in, good!) Paint, primer, sand paper, mod podge, wax, spit, gristle, ok, maybe not the last two, but you get it.
