How do I find inspiration?
When I sew, I first look for the fabric then I ask it what it wants to be--OK, not literally,
but that's the general flow of things.
I first pick the fabric, and then pick the project.
Furniture is much the same way for me.
RARELY do I actually have an end result in mind when I start. I don't start out thinking--I'm going to make a white dresser, more likely . . . I have a dresser and I try to find a color that brings out it's best qualities.
I ask: What color will make this 1970's table/desk/ dresser current?
This Basset set was soooooo big and chunky. I love the many, many straight lines, but the rounded edges just added so much weight.
To lighten it up I choose Old White from Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and then to further lighten them up I heavily distressed it for a light, white washed coastal feeling. I just love how they've been transformed!
How do you create??
Do you know the end from the beginning
are you more a walk the past of discover sort of person?
Thanks for stopping by!
