What a Perfect Little Desk

July 31, 2015

You guessed it…I was at yet another garage sale (can you believe it!) and I came across this cute little desk.  It was a tad bit boring, but had so much potential.  I couldn’t wait to get it home to give it a new lease on life!



It was so cute, I decided to go with Annie Sloan’s Old White chalk paint on the “body”…



and then for a pop of color and originality, I added one of my Faves…Annie Sloan Graphite to all of the original hardware as well as the top of the desk.







I think it turned out GREAT! What do you think???

On to the next project… 🙂

French Provincial Beauties

April 21, 2015

I have been getting SO MANY calls about this beautiful French Provincial set!  Simply because someone had simply decided this set was no longer beautiful to them, they landed in my hands and I am ecstatic they did!! I had no idea that the day Chris brought home this vintage Chest of Drawers and Dresser from Bankhead Rd in Atlanta that my phone would be blowing up with people wanting them for their home.

These pieces are made of solid cherry wood.  Their arrived with original hardware, and every single drawer is beautifully dovetailed and in great working condition.  To top it off, they are made by the historic Bassett Furniture Company!

I had a total vision for these pieces. First it was off to my favorite neighborhood boutique The Bird & The Bee to grab some Annie Sloan “Country Grey” and Annie Sloan “Graphite” Chalk Paint.

I started this project by removing all of the original hardware, and painting them a rich Graphite black/gray.

I then painted the tops of both the Chest of Drawers and Dresser in the same Graphite for an additional added pop of color…

Moving on to the bodies of the pieces, I decided on a clean, neutral Country Gray.

A few finishing touches of lightly distressing each piece and sealing them with two coats of Annie Sloan clear wax and a coat of dark wax for that added distressed touch, and they were looking like original works of art.

Ohhh…and Surprise!!! There was a cute little night stand too!

I had such a great time bringing these pieces back to life!  I think they just look gorgeous and hope the awesome woman Chris delivered them to a few Sunday’s ago loves them as much as I do!

An Adorable Kitchen/Dining Room Table

January 19, 2015

The woman who sold this to me said it had been in her family 50+ year…I just knew I could bring it back to life!

I immediately sought out my handy dandy assistant (my husband Chris) for help! 🙂 I asked him to help me sand down the top of the table (because I really wasn’t in love with the square design the tabletop had).  Chris grabbed our power sander and went to work!

Next was the big decision..What color to stain the top??? Off we went to Home Depot to check out all the different stain colors.  After much debate we decided on rich deep chocolaty color “Kona”.  Screen Shot 2015-01-18 at 11.51.12 PM

I have to admit, it was a great choice.  I could tell from the first few strokes that it was going to look perfect!

Ok, so with the tabletop looking Amazing, it was time to move on to the legs.  I decided to paint the legs an old white. The contrast turned out just like I imagined.  Perfect!

The table has a removable leaf so you can easily adjust this table from seating 4-6 to seating 6-8 people with ease!  It even has a cute little drawer at each end of the table for your extra utensils or napkins.

Check out this Storage Table

November 16, 2014

Isn’t this beautiful!!! I hate that I forgot to take “before” pictures of this guy!

I found this piece a few weeks back when I was driving through the downtown area of Atlanta.  I remember driving past a little garage and a lady was sitting outside with a sign that said “Furniture and Things”.  Something told me to stop.  We spoke and I slowly walked through her garage piled to the top with so many awesome treasures.  I was in heaven!!! I called my husband and told him to get the truck ready!  After picking out about 7 different items from dressers, to mirrors, to desks and antiques, I really made out big time.

This storage piece was one of my faves! It was pretty beat up, but solid wood and I could just picture all the great things a family could store on it from top to bottom.bottom storage area has been painted in Annie Sloan old white and topped off with two coats of clear wax and a coat of dark wax. It’s been distressed to perfection!

Whether a person is looking for a coffee table, console table, tv stand or a sofa table this would work perfectly! It would also draw attention as a unique entryway or hallway storage table.
