In this recent gloomy economic climate, it would be nice to add a bit of color and I though sharing some of the neat distressed finishes we have been working on, might brighten up the days a bit.
The hand rubber, distressed finish sky blue hutch adds some pleasantness to the room and may even pass as French Provincial, as does the lemon flavored traditional Chinese stool with a worn down finish for that “clean but aged look.”
French country – Chinese country – whatever it is, its pretty cool. These pieces were on their way to new homes.
Even darker browns and “plain ol” black and white take on a new life with a bit of hand rubbing to add character.
The effect shows just nicely on this unusually shaped Chinese bookcase.
So? Why not brighten up your own rooms?
