Painting up a storm

I'm exhausted...I feel like going to bed and it's only 4:30...good grief...


I didn't leave the house most of yesterday and all of today - I've been busy - check out my progress:

 
Closer shots of my new pillows from HomeGoods:
 

 
Here are the 'befores' of both pieces:




The console still looks kind of messy to me - it was hard to paint around the adhesive for the mirrored sections.  But I'll live with it a while and see how I feel.



The nightstand...sigh...  I started with Annie Sloan in Paris Gray...then I decided I was going to add some Valspar black enamel...that looked too faux-y to me.  I tried a coat of Annie Sloan in Napoleonic Blue.  Yeah, no. 




So, then I tried a coat of Valspar in City Storm (leftover from my Art cabinet ).  Then, I had serious painter's remorse and wanted to strip it all off (the paint that is)...I'm leaving it for now...mainly because once I styled it I actually kind of like it...we'll see...if it's not nailed down I just might change it :)





Looks more blue than I expected but i'm going with it. I love how my new trinket box works with the styling.  My fishnet-covered tissue box even looks good :)  (if I do say so myself). 

Here's a another shot of the full room with both nightstands.  They don't match and I kind of dig that. 


This next project isn't that exciting but I spent for-ever on it and have the blisters to prove it - I insisted on changing my towel rack to this lovely version from Threshold (Target).  Yeah - check me out - that's drilling through the tile people.  Not easy. 



Have you checked out Bauble Bar yet?  I LOVE their jewelry.  Yes, I make my own...and I buy vintage...and I buy fine stuff from Jared...and costume from Bauble Bar.  So?  Chicks love jewelry :)
