Luckett’s Green Dresser: My Happy Accident

green-lucketts-1-ec

I really liked this dresser when I saw the picture of it posted for sale. It was just my style and I was hoping I had a chance at it! Searching for and buying pieces can be a chore...let me tell you. I really thought I wasn't going to have a chance to get this cutie, but luckily I was able to get in touch with the seller easily and arrange a meet. My original vision was to paint it in a … [Read more...]

Schloss Buffet Makeover

schloss-buffet-1-ec

I couldn't believe I was able to easily snag this stunning buffet. I found it posted for sale on a Facebook sale site and it was there a day or two before I sent over a message to the seller. I couldn't believe no one got to it before me! I took my Mom to help me pick it up...not that she actually helps me load pieces as she probably 85 pounds, BUT her company is nice. She's so supportive of … [Read more...]

fp-desk-in-ow-2-ec

 This desk was much too cute to walk away from... I needed to make her pretty! I liked her curves and lovely hardware. Oh la la! I imagined her in a soft creamy white.

Amsterdam Green Desk

Now that's a good friend ;) I really loved those pretty oval pulls...one of my favorite types of antique hardware. I was all in. My vision was a bold color. I just couldn't figure out what. She sat for awhile in my garage as I considered my options. I decided to go red. I … [Read more...]

I purchased this cute antique server from a furniture contact of mine. I spotted her from across the room in all her worn and beat up glory. I saw right past her worn finish. She would be just lovely. That I knew. She  needed to be brought back to life. She was the perfect candidate for a bold, rich color...like RED. Oh yes...RED! What a great piece for this color!| I couldn't wait to … [Read more...]
