I usually play it pretty safe with my painted furniture. I decided since I wasn't trying to match this to my home I would try to do something different. Lately I have been really liking the distressed, worn, looks like it has been in a beach house for 50 years kind of paint treatment. I had no idea what I was doing but figured I would just go for it and make it up as I went. Halfway through I hated it and thought I had wasted a ton of my time and would need to paint over it. I remembered reading a post by Miss Mustard Seed where she said a lot of her finishes look weird midway so I just kept going. I am glad I did because in the end I really liked the finish. It is definitely outside my comfort zone but it was fun to try something new.
Have any of you tried anything outside your normal design style lately?
