Victorian Accent Table

I acquired this little Victorian accent table from my parents' cabin. It had been used for years as a tv stand but had been shoved in the corner for the last few years. I tightened her up and painted it creamy white...she's looking fab!

Black Sofa Table

I've been bad about capturing pictures before I start on the transformation but trust me, if you would have seen this one when I brought it home, ugh!

Now it's a beautiful black sofa table with some light distressing to highlight the nice details of the piece! I'm thrilled how cute she turned out, hope you agree!

Upcycled Cake Plate

After my last candy dish creation a friend of mine suggested I make a cake plate, so I did! I combined an awesome old silver candlestick and a pretty glass tray to make this piece. Cake, cookies, muffins, cheese & many uses for this cutie!

Grey + White Dresser

I was lucky enough to find this little three drawer dresser with the original hardware including all 4 wheels! I gave it a couple coats of paint, distressed it just a bit and finished with a coat of stain and poly.
The two tone color, vintage hardware, and delicate wood detail make this a fun, unique and usable piece!

Mahogany Side Table

I did a quick refresh on this adorable solid mahogany side table, leaving the top natural, painting the base black and finishing with a light coat of wax.

End table, side table, or night stand...this is a versatile little piece.

Vintage Trunk Style Cedar Dresser

Beautiful cedar dresser with two nice deep drawers and simple scalloping on the bottom. Great patina on this trunk like piece that would be cute at the base of a bed or even a coffee table.

Antique Moss Green Desk

Another solid piece, destined for a landfill, rescued and cuter then ever.
The body has been painted moss green and lightly distressed, and the top was in nice condition so I just sanded it down and gave it a fresh coat of stain and poly. The hardware has been updated with all matching vintage brass pulls that I ordered off Etsy.

Vintage Mustard Wardrobe

Dark, dirty and dismal...this vintage wardrobe was screaming for some life!
I had been looking for something like this for years and was so excited when I finally found this well constructed, solid wood piece. Amazingly, the original wheels, mirror, clothing hanger and tie rack are still intact!



These distressed letters are so fun in an entry way, with a photo collage, in a bedroom, or just about anywhere you can dream up. I've seen lots of ideas on Pinterest where they apply these letters to a pretty picture frame or an embellished canvas. So many applications for these letters, or use them just as they are...because they are CUTE all by by themselves!

Spring Green Distressed Desk

I was torturing my brother and husband by having them walk through a flea market with me last fall when I came across this little desk, buried under a bunch of other goodies.

It doesn't look like it ever had a drawer, but I made a really simple one because it seemed like it was incomplete without it.

Not Too Shabby Chair

Super cute, lightly distressed, little wood chair.
I'm a sucker for fun chairs, I only wish I could have found more just like this one!
