French Linen Beauty


Shopping for pieces can be fun...or frustrating. Finding good pieces lately can be a challenge. Seems everyone is painting. So much competition. So when I found this cute and very sturdy dresser with nice mirror, I was pretty happy. She has simple lines, but so much potential. Can you see her all painted up pretty? Look past the nicks and bent hardware and you will see it. No piece is … [Read more...]

Shutter Grey Highboy Makeover


A follower from my Facebook page just remarked that I find the best furniture. I think she's right!

Linen Milk-Painted Washstand Makeover


I know the before picture I saw of this piece doesn't show much, but I could see the underlying beauty right away. Did you notice the carved details and the cuteness of this piece?

Desk in Rich Boxwood Milk Paint


This piece has a story. I was scheduled to pick it up on a Monday morning at 9 am once my kids were on the bus and headed into school. I thought it was a good plan, BUT plans don't always go as planned do they? I loaded this with the help of the gal I purchased it from and then got into my Jeep to leave, but as soon as I shifted it into reverse, my brake pedal went to the floor. I knew … [Read more...]
