This morning's post is a short and sweet update on the Little Desk Big Statement "series"! As you might have seen, I'm using a bold purple paint for this piece. The color is actually called "Impulsive Purple". It is even more beautiful than I imagined. When I opened the can of paint, I did my usual happy dance, followed by a gasp of air once the first brush stroke hit the freshly primed and sanded piece. I am not telling which part is purple....yet! But maybe the pictures will give you a hint!
THE COLOR: IMPULSIVE PURPLE by Sherwin Williams:
The other colors will remain a surprise, though I do believe they will be welcomed with open arms! The fabric....oh my goodness the fabric. I usually have to search far and wide for the perfect fabric.....but not this time! There it was....right there in front of me. I love you Hobby Lobby! When I saw it, I knew my search was OVER!
THE WINNING FABRIC: Rich colors against a neutral backdrop. I am sure in fabric world there is a name for this particular design/pattern, but for now, "awesome" will do!
So where is this fabric going? It is going to cover the seat cushion for the bench. Catch a sneak peek at the bench below....
The final reveal is scheduled for publication next week! Tune in....you won't want to miss this one! (especially if you are a lover of purple!)
I can't wait to finish this desk! A few more things on my to-do list: Decide on hardware, additional coats of paint, and a poly protective layer to "seal" the deal.
Do you like the purple? Is there a piece in your home that you would be daring enough to try a bold color on? Starting with a small piece is a great way to test whether you like it or not.
