Oh my heart!! The colors! All of this I just love!! When I visited my client for her color consultation she had a vision of how she wanted her family room pieces to look. Grey with a dark top to tie in her dark and dreamy kitchen. When verifying with her husband he mentioned a piece that he absolutely loved from my webpage: Bohemian Buffet by Link-Taylor
Another piece close to my heart that I really enjoyed doing. I looked over my shoulder and saw a painting hanging on the wall above their couch. I quickly pointed and said “we can use these colors!”
The excitement gained way and my mind was swirling! She ending up changing her original idea to a better one! The End Tables, I posted yesterday were grey and black glaze to tie in with this statement piece, making them still a matching set but with a lot more BOOM! This TV stand came out exactly how I envisioned!
Using Sherwin-Williams Tin Lizzie as our grey base I blended Jade Dragon, Interesting Aqua and Peppercorn. Glazing the unit in Tricorn Black to match the end tables which blended these three pieces together nicely. The top is Tin Lizzie just like the end tables. I added a pop of Sunny Veranda for an added artistic vibe. Changed out the hardware with white distressed grey knobs from Hobby Lobby.
If you were at Costco in Arrowhead today, August 24th, 2016 around 11 am, and heard a loud scream followed with a sobbing ugly crying sound by a girl in tears… well, that was me.
After completing my shopping with little man in tow, I thought to myself, “I should check to see if the September 2016 issue of Phoenix Magazine is out yet”. Now see, I have been keeping a secret from you all. A personal reporter, Leah, contacted me back in July stating she just enjoyed my work and wanted to interview me for her magazine piece about Statement Pieces for the September issue. Of course, I was thrilled!!
So here I stood, about five feet from the magazine rack by the front of the check out area. Skimming the covers. I see “Phoenix 50 years Mag” September issue, my heart fell in my stomach. I open it… looking at each page carefully. Finally…. page 55… there it was. Beautiful. I screamed with excitement! I cried for joy. The little lady next to me, wide eyed- mouth opened says “what in the world!?” I point at my page….. “That’s me!”with tears streaking my face, it was all I could say!!
I am still shaking. Giddy. Smiling…. Completely over the moon!! I want to give a special thanks to my client, Amanda, for allowing me to give her garage sale find a Second Chance. After all, its her piece that caught the eye of Phoenix Mag!!!
