Stunning Old White Buffet

wht buff 1 - ec

 This buffet was STUNNING when I picked her up. She was pretty even then. That isn't always the case, but it was for this big beauty. I knew I had to add some hardware on the doors, but I was perfectly ok with that. My husband was a doll as he picked her up for me after a work meeting the other day...I figured he was out that way so why not? Multitasking can be either good or a curse...I … [Read more...]

Old White Server

Old White Server 1  - EC

 Oh man. I wish I had remembered to take a before picture! It is usually the first thing I do when I bring a piece home right after I unload it from my Jeep, but I must have forgotten this time. Boo. I hope you can still appreciate this makeover anyway. Just imagine a boring brown server. Blah. She needed a little sprucin' up for sure!  How about this? So pretty now! A little bit of … [Read more...]

Sweet Dresser in Blue

jesus dresser before

 I apologize for the poor picture, but sadly it s the best one that I have. This dresser was so pretty from the start - a furniture connection of mine was selling it and immediately it caught my eye. I loved the legs, the three large drawers and the gorgeous mirror. I envisioned her in a light blue...I chose to paint her in Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Provence - it is the perfect shade of soft … [Read more...]

Custom Order Dining Set: A True Labor of LOVE

Custom table 1 - EC

I have painted other pieces for a sweet gal I know named Erin. She has been very nice to work with so when she came me seeking out a dining set to have redone for her small dining room, I was happy to help her. She knew she wanted a pedestal table to help save room, but she was unsure where to look. I began to search Craigslist and other sale sites for a table for her and I was pretty excited … [Read more...]

French Linen Server

FL server 1 - EC

I love this sweet server piece I purchased the other day. It is just the perfect size for so many things. I was anxious to paint it up. I was set on a neutral color...I always try to envision where in their home people may place a piece before I paint it. I am practical by's true. My earlier redos were a little more bold...maybe even ugly...I have toned it down quite a bit as of … [Read more...]

A Lovely Dresser in Old White

Old White Dresser 1 - EC

A friend actually spotted this dresser for me and sent me a picture to see if I was interested. Well, of course I was. She had no trouble seeing that is was JUST my style. She was curvy and tall and had a beautiful mirror that just drew me in. Of course I wanted to buy her and remake her. She had great bones and natural beauty so her makeover was pretty easy. I wanted to keep her look light … [Read more...]

Chaming Cottage Dresser Makeover

Cottage Cutie 1 - EC

  I scored this super cute dresser last week...I didn't share a picture of the mirror, but the mirror that came with it was awesome, too. I call that a win-win. I wanted to go somewhat neutral so she could be used in almost any bedroom...I painted her up in Annie Sloan's Old White and added some Annie Sloan French Linen to accent the details. I adore her new charming cottage … [Read more...]

You guys are going to adore these perfectly sweet little end tables I found the other day. Aren't these the cutest things you ever did see?!?! Did you gasp a little? I did the second I saw them. They were right up my alley. Yup. I was thrilled to find them to redo and knew they would be perfect pieces for the shop. I originally planned to paint these in Annie Sloan's Old White which I … [Read more...]

Rustic Empire Dresser

Duck Egg Dresser 1 - EC

 This dresser was a huge Craigslist score. I don't recall the price as I got it months ago, but it was super reasonable. Score! I took my mom along to pick it up - sometimes it is just nice to go on a drive together. Plus...with Craigslist pick ups, it is always best to use the buddy system in my experience. The guy who was selling it answered the door without his shirt on...not normally a … [Read more...]
