Another Monet...his colors seem to be working for me in this house. I am going to have to work in a Van Gogh somewhere though, as Van Gogh is my favorite artist. I've seen both Monet's and Van Gogh's works in museums, and while a Monet is very soothing there is something about a Van Gogh that reaches out, grabs me around the chest and squeezes. I can 'see' the emotion in each brush stroke...it's amazing.
The drawer pulls are really yellow beads that matches the bed linen...there was a lot of shine reflected off the picture on the drawer fronts, and when I edited the picture to remove the glare it took the color out of the beads. I did have to give the beads a coat of matte gel medium after I put them on, as they were so shiny it was distracting. The gel medium may not have been dry yet when I took the picture yesterday afternoon.
I wasn't sure I would like the grid of the spaces between the drawer fronts breaking up the picture, but it didn't turn out too bad. I used a wood stain instead of paint on the grid thinking it would be lighter thus less obstrusive, but it turned out almost exactly the same color as the paint.
I built a shallow dresser so that it would fit in front of the stair railing and leave enough room for a walkway between it and the bed. When I close to being done I added some detail to the back of the dresser, thinking that another place to put the dresser could be on the fourth, open wall, so that the railing around the stairs wouldn't be obstructed. It looks silly on the open wall though, so it will sit in front of the railing.
