If you’ve been reading this blog for any amount of time, you have probably heard about my knotty-wood phobia. It creeps me out! I can’t hardly look at pictures of it, let alone be surrounded by it in a room full of beady little wood-knot eyes that watch my every move. Awful!
I also have a fear of dark, overly ornate wood, because it looks like a coffin to me. Other than vampires or people who are like, really goth, who wants to furnish their homes with coffins? No one, that’s who.
That’s why Courtney lightened up this dreary armoire with white paint and a glaze job that makes the details jump out and say “Hey! I’m interesting and fabulous, NOT a destination for human remains!”
To recap, Dark ornate wood: scary. Light ornate wood: fantastic! Thanks Courtney!
