So we’ve talked about my little obsession with Halcyon Green.
But if you know me at all, you know I’m never really “done” with anything.
Like the dresser that’s currently my TV stand.
Here’s the story:
The dresser was my Daddy’s growing up, then mine as long as I can remember, and it wasn’t particularly ugly, just not the wood color I would’ve picked (think walnut). So when Sweet Sister and I were moving in together for college, she needed a dresser, this was an extra, and somehow it made it to Tuscaloosa.
I painted it cream and then added a brown glaze so that it would match her “shabby chic” room.
Then when she moved out, it was once again my dresser. For two years, it was pretty and cream and made a great TV stand (plus, who doesn’t need extra storage space, right?!).
You can see it in the background of this picture (please overlook the mess — my best friend had decorated my apartment for my 21st birthday — yes, that was years and years ago). That’s Isabelle being a nerd about the balloons.
But apparently that wasn’t good enough because I got a whim to paint it one day. I headed to the Sherwin Williams store, got Halcyon Green paint (didn’t even take it home to look at the swatch), and bought paint.
Two coats later it looked a little like this….
