Funky Furniture

Painting some funky, fun furniture pieces is my new "thing". I bought this small white set of drawers at a friend's yard sale this summer. It was white and painted in a nice little country scene. I had seen some funky painted stuff on the Web and just had to try my hand at it with this piece. It was a lot of fun to do. I did the front first and as you can see, I got a little too "detailed" with it. Those that know me, know that is my normal state of being. Ha-ha! I decided if I wanted to finish this any time soon, I'd need to lighten up on the sides and top, so they are a little less intense. And I have to say - I really like them the best. Good lesson for me. Less detail - good thing. Next I'm tackling 4 of those old metal patio chairs that have the tubular, curved legs that let you sort of bounce when you're sitting. I think they are from the 40's and 50's.....good winter project!
