Empathy and Calm Seas for a baby's room.

Hi there!

Have you heard the birds chirping away recently?? I think they know something we don't . . . maybe spring really is just around the corner?!?

When I think of spring I think of flowers blooming and bright beautiful colours - you know, like the soft & pretty 'Calm Seas' of this restyled secretary desk:

I really love how this piece turned out! My client was looking for a pop of colour and a statement piece to add to her nursery - and I think we found it! 

We even added a little sunshine inside this sweet secretary by painting out the inside in 'Empathy', a rich and soft beautiful yellow!

I often get asked if I bother painting out the inside of my restyled furniture . . . my decision usually hinges on 3 questions:

1. What condition is the interior in? (good, bad, ugly??)

2. Where did this piece come from? (passed down from grandma? online score? side of the road find?)

3. What is this piece going to be used for? 

The answer to whether or not I paint out the inside of a piece lies in the answers to those three questions. This secretary was a great online purchase that was going to be used in a baby's room . . . so we painted the inside.

We even painted out the inside and outside of all the drawers - what a nice finishing touch!

Oooh! Don't even get me started on this hardware!! Hammered gold knobs?!? Yes pls!

(we still have some of these available at the studio if you feel the urge to add some bling to your things)
