Custom Order Cabinet

Custom 6

I met a lovely lady named Sandi who sought me out to paint up a cabinet for her. She had this cute cabinet that was in need of a makeover. The cabinet was too dark for her light and sweet cottage room and she wanted to make it over in a cream, white and purple combination with some floral handpainting.  The idea was to give it a light cottage feel to match its current surroundings. I think we … [Read more...]

Short and Sweet Antique Dresser

Shortie 8- EC

She was super stunning from the start. I loved her details and columns...she was just so sweet. Did I mention that she also came with a fabulous HUGE mirror?

I tool them off once I was all finished with her makeover. She was short, but … [Read more...]
