Screened Porch Reveal View One

Whew, it's done.  Since there's so much going on in there, and I don't have a wide angle lens, I'm going to individually feature several views of the room.
This wall is to your right as you enter from the sidewalk through the screened door.  It's the wall where the sofa finally stayed.




In a previous post, here, you saw the sofa and mirror.  I was indecisive about the columns.  I decided to keep them in the mix and used a dry brush technique to get them to be the same color as the mirror.  I'll do a tutorial on this in another post.  I decided not to use the chartreuse accents I was considering in the previous post.  On one side of the sofa I  used a painted garden table with an attached lamp and a magazine rack.



And on the other side a vintage medical cabinet with its original chippy swirly paint design.  I  added an alabaster lamp, blue transfer ware bowl, and a piece of coral.




This is another angle of the same view.  In the foreground you can see my factory cart.  It was painted red, green, and yellow.  I'll do a separate post to tell you how I achieved the Belgian look.




Below is a top view of  the factory cart.






On top of the cart I placed weathered medical books, bound with twine and topped with a starfish.  In the large hammered metal bowl are some floats and shells.


Next post will feature another view of the room. Three views in all.
If you missed the original post, go here.
To see view two go here and for view three here.

  27. I cannot even say how much I love this cart!!
    I am planning on making a cart like this from scratch. I was wondering if it's too much to ask the approximate measurements of the real one? I can't wait to DIY myself!!
    Thanks for posting this! Becca
