Taylor's Room: Inspired by the silver dresser
I painted an organic graphic out of metallic paint on opposite sides of the room. The end of the room with the entrance doorway, bath doorway and closet, I painted chocolate. The other 3/4 of the room I painted a non-metallic platinum. Love zebra print, so I did my own knock off of a ZGallerie painting and found the subdued grey zebra bedding at West Elm.
I found the glamorous chandelier at a local lighting store (not cheap because I endend up having it converted to a plug in fixture rather than hard wire - - $100 extra) and hung it just the right height to reflect in a cheap cheap Ikea mirror (likey the cheap cheap).
I found a free chair on Craigslist for this room that I am having recovered in a linen look zebra fabric. It is one of those 70's french provincial numbers that were all over the place back then. Darn it all, I forgot to take a Before picture, but I will be sure to post an After picture when it is done. Guess what color I spray painted the framework of the chair? . . .wait for it. . . . . .
- - - silver.
And, yes, I made sure I covered it plenty with grey Rustoleum primer first ;)
Have I mentioned how important primer is?
I thought so.
