Shabby Chic Shelf Unit

 Broken legs and loose all over...this little shelf unit was in rough shape when I found it, but the potential was evident.
After lots of glue, screws and putty it's as solid as could be. The dark stain seemed so heavy on this cute detailing so I opted to brighten it up with some fresh white paint.
I couldn't be happier with the outcome--hope you agree!


Antique Moss Secretary

This is such an adorable little desk! This piece was really in pretty good shape, just needed to be tightened up and painted. I gave it a couple coats of Antique Moss paint, which was essentially a neon green--yikes! Obviously that wasn't the look I wanted, so I distressed it and gave it a coat of dark stain to achieve the nice moss color. I liberally applied a wax and feed solution to the inside and replaced the boring old wooden knobs with some really cute white ceramic ones.
Such a lovely, usable piece!

Ruby Red Side Table

This adorable little table would add a nice punch of color in a living room or bedroom.  She is cute as can be -- I'm always partial to red pieces and now I don't know if I'll be able to part with this one:)
