Whew, this week has truly been crazy! I haven't even been able to update WhiteBerry with my new items, but what's more important is that I haven't been able to update it to show that everything is sold or spoken for with deposits (even the new stuff that hasn't been added!!). That is really great, but at the same time I also now have a wait list of people wanting dressers, and all the dressers in the garage already have homes. I have had to juggle treasure hunting as well as painting nearly everyday, and usually I only do one day a week of each. I totally never expected January to be a big month for dressers, but apparently it is (must be all those "White Sales" getting people into a white state of mind). So I may be kind of a sketchy blogger this week, but by the weekend I hope to have some cool stuff to share.

One of them being a blue armoire! I have had an armoire sitting in my pile for about 3 weeks now and everytime I look at it I think blue. Once I had it all primed, in white of course, I knew that it definitely needed to be a soft sea-form/robin's egg blue. When I do all my work I go ALL OUT and take up the whole garage so Sean moved my car outside, but afterwards he decided to bring it back and when he came into the house all he had to say was "wow, that's alot of blue!". I hope that isn't going to be the general concensus~

Well, here's to hoping that it looks as good as these lovelies by the time I work a little more magic on it.

I am sure the blue will be gorgeous! A pale robins-egg blue is one of my best esllers for furniture...especially if you do it on an armoire! Can't wait to see it! Get it done..fast! ;o) ~mary~

I have been following your blog, and love your work! When I read your post about the blue armoire, I just had to chime in with my two cents...I think it's brilliant! I love the subtlety that it would bring to a room, and how it still allows the light to catch the architectural details of the piece through cast shadows. Can't wait to see how the piece comes out! :)

ooh I can't wait to see it. Robin's egg blue is my favorite color.

I have another question for your FAQ's....I too paint furniture (in my garage) but, take time off in the winter because of the cold wintery, weather (Utah). I am too afraid that the paint and polyurethane won't dry properly so I just resume in the spring. How do you overcome this situation? Thanks

Congratulations on so much business success, that is so fantastic and exciting!!

I absolutely love the soft blue. LOVE.

Caroline said...

I am now wishing for a blue dresser!

sissie said...

Now you are making me want to paint something blue. People here at the beach love the shade of blue for their beach cottages.

I better get out the paint brush because the vacationers will be here soon!

That 4th one, the armoire in the dining room, I've seen before and it is perfection. They all give a beautiful new meaning to "having the blues". :) Can't wait to see your newest creation.

I have no blue in my house, but I LOVE the blue trend. It makes me wish that I had a beach house ro furnish and decorate. ;)
