This year I got the privilege of working with the color Purple. Kinda a stretch for me, but I am always up to push my limits. I know its SW Painting Week, but I couldn't help but take my cues from Radiant Orchid from this years color of the year. With that as my starting point the hunt for an accent piece began. You. Guys. I was lucky enough to find this ugly little ducking.
All dusty and covered in over spray. I'm sure you have all seen this style of chair at Anthro for a thousand plus. I could just see her now... restored to a former glory. I chose to work with two colors so the chair had depth. I sprayed the whole chair with my SW TradeWorks 170 Sprayer in Verve Violet as the all over color. When it was dry I hand brushed the back in Drama Violet.
Ignore my chipped and grown out mani. Ewe! But can you see where this is going....
I think I handled purple like a pro. Wouldn't she be so cute on a front porch? Hmmmm now to decide to keep or sale? That's a real problem when you own a vintage shop! Maybe I'll just try it out this weekend and see!
