Schloss Beauty

I didn't mind driving 45 minutes one way for this lovely depression-era beauty. My pleasure. The picture was a little unclear so I wasn't sure quite what I was getting. I was more than pleasantly surprised. I loved her tiered look, her turned legs and all her pretty carved details. Oh my. Isn't she a doll? She came with an amazing mirror too ... I couldn't wait to get her painted up! She … [Read more...]

Artissimo Desk Makeover


I found this cute desk on Craigslist and I liked it right away. It seems like people are always shopping for desks so it's always a good idea to buy desks when you find cute ones. This desk was snatched up by a gal looking for a desk to be custom painted in a fantastic color she loved - Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint in Artissimo. Artissimo is a rich and lovely navy blue. I mixed the paint … [Read more...]

Rustic Blue Empire

One look and I was hooked. Holy empire goodness. I definitely hit the jackpot with this chest! Oh my. He was handsome. I had to have this chest delivered as I had bought several pieces from the same fellow and my Jeep is only so big. When he unloaded it, I was able to see how ginormous it was. The chest stood to the top of my chin. I know I am short, but geez, that is a big chest! He was … [Read more...]

 This dresser is much too cute. She is a great size and I loved those carved pulls! Such cottage charm :)  I wanted to keep her sweet cottage look so I chose to paint her up in Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint (with the bonding agent)  in Farmhouse White and Mustard Seed Yellow. I went two-tone with her painting the base one color and the drawers another. I distressed her a little and then … [Read more...]

I totally have SUMMER BRAIN. I completely forgot to post the Creative Inspirations Linky Party this week. My apologies. It didn't help that it was the last week of school with lots of hustle and bustle and a husband out of town for 5 days. I survived, man. That's all that matters really. Please link up anything you have created – DIY projects, crafts, room makeovers, recipes, furniture … [Read more...]

If you are close by, you … [Read more...]

I am working like a dog to get projects done before my girls are released from school for the year! I am not sure why as I will still paint and work during the summer, but for some reason, I feel the urge to cram in as much as possible. Am I alone?? Maybe I am just weird. Anyway, thanks for coming to the Creative Inspirations Linky Party tonight! Please be sure to link up lots of great posts … [Read more...]
