Raspberry Red!

          This piece is going in a home salon so it was a great chance to do something fun with the color.  It took a few tries to get it right (and a lot of mixing!), but I loved how the color turned out.   Couldn't decide if it was pink or red....so raspberry red it is! :)

Before



After

This was a veneer, so I primed, painted 3 coats of red, distressed, and then stained black.




                                Free handed the letters--a lot of sanding does wonders! ;)

  1. How appropriate the "alot of mixing" and "not sure what to call it so rasberry red it is" fits with the whole salon atmosphere. Very creative..thanks Lis!

  3. Love!! Super Cute.
    Jeana (I'm guessing) is a lucky recipient! I have two towers similar to this piece that I would LOVE to bring to you so you can make them look this good for me...seriously I wish I could. I'm just not quite as sure of myself as you are I guess...cuz I'm totally nervous to re-finish them. I should send you a pic so you can see and give me some pointers on what to do with them.

  4. Send me a pic!! Trust yourself--you can do it and if you don't like it you just sand it off and start over--ask me how I know. ;)

  5. Hello! Quick question that's completely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My website looks weird when viewing from my iphone. I'm trying to find a theme or plugin
    that might be able to correct this issue. If you have any recommendations, please share.
    Cheers!
