Hallway Console Redo

A while ago a client of mine asked me to refinish a a buffet that she had in her front hallway.  She wanted to update the entryway and find a way to "make it pop".  I decided I would convince her to use a color I've been wanting to use for a long time! Annie Sloan's Chalk Paint in Emperor's Silk!


Below is the before.  It had a lot of structural damage to its legs from water damage and one of the doors wouldn't close properly. Once that was fixed, I sanded the piece down just enough to do away with the layer of polyurethane it had. I wanted to leave the black underneath it in order to match the artwork that inspired the piece.  It also needed new hardware.


Here is the inspiration for the color:


I wanted to match the dark red leaf in the painting.  How did I do?!


Isn't she LOVELY?!


The front door is also a deep red, so it truly just brings the whole space together so well.

Do any of YOU have a statement piece like this?

GF Fridays: My new tab/page to find all my recipes


Hi y'all! I haven't done a GF Friday in awhile!  I figured I would to celebrate the new and awesome tab I have set up in order to have all of my recipes in a gallery form in one place!  All of my GF recipes, as well as my non GF ones are working their way up there! I promise I'll have them all up within a week or so.  There are 29 recipes according to my labels, so it will take awhile.  I have a few GF ones up already and will continue to give those priority this week.

Here is the link: Recipes

Enjoy!

As always, if any reader/blogger would like to contribute a GF recipe for GF Fridays, just contact me at info(at)eveyscreations(dot)com.  I look forward to hearing from you!
