Because I love Pottery Barn style
and because I'm budget brained,
I'm determined to find ways
to "Get the Look".
You know Red over Black paint layering
is one of my faves.
Base painting in a semi-gloss black...
Double loading a brush of two semi-gloss reds -
Apple Red and Colonial Red-
and brushing over black.
And there you have the look of the
Pottery Barn Red.
The canvas totes make great accent pieces
with the red furniture.
Here are just a few details -
Topstitch long edges.
Finish side edges
and stitch right sides together.
Make a box bottom
by stitching across bottom
forming a triangle.
Add grommets around top.
put a fabric covered cardboard square in bottom.
I've used the layered red over black
in several paint projects under
the "Painted Furniture" tab
in the menu at the top.
Here is a recent bedroom set:
(including chalkboard headboard
and cork topped nightstand)
Style on a budget.
It's a fun challenge.
Hope your days are filled with fun projects too!
