Oh Lordy, am I excited!! And no, it isn’t because the men’s US Open Tennis final is just about to begin. Ok, it is a little bit. I am a die-hard tennis fan and I love a good match up, and this one between Rafa and Djokovic should be soooooo-perb! Painting furniture is my number one addiction, tennis is my second (wine is my third :)) But no, I am over the moon excited about this absolutely fabulous furniture I picked up at the weekend!
Initially my plan was to paint it out a two-toned original wood/ ivory white (similar to this post here), but it is in such amazing condition that I am going to leave it original. The colour and the finish on these pieces is as en-trend as Lady Ga-ga perched a-top an apple ipad wielding a whole-wheat vegan wrap.
I only have pics of the nightstands at the moment, but the entire set (headboard, longboy, armoir, mirror) are all equally amazing.
I did some research and this style of furniture is themed as BRUTALIST in the style of Paul Evans. Im lovin’ it! It channels a real gothic vibe to it.
Here is a pic of the lovely matching mirror. Oh, and ladies, as an added bonus, the gentlemen I picked this wonderful set up from was not only extremely patient as I wrestled with my stubborn tie-down straps, but more than just-a little handsome as well. :)
