Earlier I mentioned how Dottie I was finally getting around to painting our window seat.
This piece started out life as a coffee table that belonged to my grandmother’s friend. After she passed away my grandparents used it in their house as a tv console for a while, and when we bought our house we also used it as a tv console until we rearranged the library. Then I bought some clearance Pottery Barn chair cushions, sewed them into a long strip, and turned it into a window seat.
The dogs liked the window seat as much as I did, and because I was slow in getting a rug pad to go under the cushions, they added some of their own distressing to the top.
Initially I wanted to paint the piece Valspar Under the Sea, but with some help from Dots I decided to use a green we already had. The actual painting was a pain in my behind because of all the trim pieces on the doors, and after briefly hitting the “I hate this project!” and “oh no, I think I picked the wrong color!” walls I didn’t stress too much, especially because I knew I wanted an antique-y look and didn’t have to get it to look perfect. After about half an hour to an hour I was done painting, and ready to move it back inside (with a rug pad under the cushion this time, to prevent as many scratches from the dogs as possible).
What do you think? Did I Dots pick the right color, or is there more painting in the hot Florida sun in the future?
