Not on every piece… but on an occasional certain piece
that look just seems to ‘fit’
it’s chipping paint & shabby wear just makes it that much more charming
If you ask my oldest son, he thinks pieces that look like this should be sanded all the way down and repainted
with a shiny new coat of paint to fix those ‘problems’
Now when I look at a piece of furniture that shows spidery age cracks, missing paint or big time flakiness
I see the years it has been around in those cracks
the colors it wore 30, 40, 50 or more years ago in the chipped paint
and the age and character that comes with authentic antique painted finishes.
I look at those chips of paint flaking and falling off and see bits of history in them.
and with much more paint chipped off than I am used to loving…
it’s simple charm melted me.
