Three Drawer Night Stand-SOLD

I found this piece at the second hand store, but I thought a fresh coat of paint might bring her to life.

I sanded, painted, and layered a nice heavy coat of dark stain on it...and it was dreadful!! I mean really, it looked worse then when I picked it up! So I thought I'll try to sand it down and start over.  Holy cow, when I started sanding off the dark stain it started looking more distressed, more natural. It was awesome. I topped it off with a coat of furniture wax and 3 new drawer pulls and I love it! Not sure I can ever replicate the technique so it's truly one of a kind!


Traditional Side Table-SOLD

I'm not big on dark mahogany stained furniture so I thought a little white paint and a light distressing would balance this side table out. Super cute!
Don't fret, this wasn't an actual antique table, it was only a reproduction.


The April Sale That Never Was

There were high hopes of a huge April sale, but mother nature would have none of that:( I guess that just means that I will have that many more awesome things ready for the next sale.

Stay tuned for exciting news in the next few days as I have hopes of a sale in the very near future!

Wild Willow Wreath

Despite all the snow we've been having, I was able to get out and gather some gorgeous pussy willows. Last week I made this beauty with some nice willows--it sure helps it feel like spring indoors at least:)

Spring Snowstorm

April 22nd and we are experiencing another spring snowstorm! Is this some sort of sick joke? Nope, it's the real deal. This weather makes it hard to get out to find good junk!

You win Mother Nature, now can we be on with spring already?!

Antique Grey Chest of Drawers

 I've been really bad at remembering to capture before pictures, but I did remember on this one. Be sure to scroll down and check out what this girl looked like just a few weeks ago. 

I painted this dresser in a nice creamy white, hit a few spots to give it a nice light distressing and finished with grey stain and poly. The grey stain gives this piece a gently weathered patina. Complete with the original drawer pulls and wheels, this is a really nice solid and sassy dresser.
