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...]

Sweet Artissimo Server

Please excuse the upside down picture, but at least I didn't forget the picture :) Sometimes I am so excited to get painting that I forget to snap a picture if you want to know the truth. I am passionate about painting! So I purchased this sweet fella with his big sister which I just showed you in the last post... He is so stinkin' cute! I loved his look and great pulls... I wanted to … [Read more...]

Shutter Grey Highboy Makeover

shutter-gey-highboy-before

A follower from my Facebook page just remarked that I find the best furniture. I think she's right! It's a competitive market around here as there are lots of painters vying for the same pieces though which is frustrating. I was more than happy to score this stately beauty! Isn't she gorgeous?? I had been waiting for the perfect piece to use one of my favorite milk paint colors on... I … [Read more...]

Stunning Buffet in Typewriter

My word. When I saw this beauty for sale, I pounced. Finding beautiful buffets to refinish is very difficult as EVERYONE IS LOOKING FOR THEM. It's quite a competitive market where I live which is frustrating. I had to make a quick decision on this one as I didn't want to lose her. When I went to pick her up, my decision was confirmed. I scored one big, stunning buffet! Good gracious. I … [Read more...]

Desk in Rich Boxwood Milk Paint

boxwood-desk-8

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...]

Trophy Hutch

THIS caught my eye right away! A gorgeous, tall vintage Drexel hutch....it was in fantastic shape, too! I loved it! I couldn't wait to get my hands on it! I thought it needed a strong and sophisticated color....like Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint in Trophy. It is a sweet color! So...Trophy it is! I wanted to avoid chippiness so I added the Bonding Agent when I mixed the paint. I … [Read more...]

Hi guys! I have been muddling through trying to get into a new school routine since we began last Wednesday... and it is HARD! It takes such DISCIPLINE to do it well. Waking on time, making the bus, completing homework, getting dinner ready on time, and bedtime routines. Serenity NOW! I am sure it will get better, but it is a challenge right now. Blogging? Oh forget about it! I will get … [Read more...]

Farmhouse Sweetheart

FH White Dresser - 1

What is it about white? Any furniture refinisher or painter would likely tell you that white is the hardest color to work with. It is a pain to paint with as sometimes stain bleeds through it. It takes a GAZILLION coats. And it isn't very forgiving...meaning it shows imperfections all too well. And yet....it is so pretty. I guess it is a LOVE/HATE thing. I hate to paint with it, but I love … [Read more...]

Striking Buffet in Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint in Typewriter

black buffet 1- EC

    She was lovely before paint...it's true. Can you imagine how much more with paint?? I purchased this from a furniture shop and opted not to buy the top piece rather using the base as simply a buffet. I loved her curves and that hardware was pretty awesome! I envisioned her as elegant and perfect for someone's dining room so I chose to paint her up in Miss Mustard Seed's … [Read more...]

Sweet Vintage China Cabinet Makeover

I loved this cute china cabinet when I saw it...it was so vintage sweet! I hadn't painted one in awhile so I decided to buy it and refinish it. It was adorable and I simply couldn't resist! I thought green would be the perfect color, but when I checked my stash, I saw that I didn't have quite enough of Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint in Boxwood and thought I would add some of my Miss Mustard … [Read more...]
