Flow Blue Beauty

flow blue 1 - ec

 I saw this dresser posted for sale and I messaged that seller just as fast as I could.| This one was just too cool to pass up. I loved the tier on the top with the two drawers and the shape of the piece. I picked it up the next day - I couldn't wait to get my hands on it! Upon further inspection, I noted that the wood was marked, dinged and full of character marks, but it was a solid … [Read more...]

Trophy Hutch

trophy cabinet 1 - EC

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...]

Tricycle Buffet Makeover

tricycle buffet 1 - ec

I almost didn't buy this piece to redo. I don't know why, but she didn't impress me much at first. This buffet had great bones, BUT she was much more traditional than I typically like. But.....after two minutes of staring at her and sizing her possibilities up, I decided to go for it. Why not? I was starting to run through all the colors she would look smashing in ... know what I mean? I … [Read more...]

French Linen Beauty

French Linen Dresser 2 - EC

 This dresser caught my eye from the beginning. The mirror actually drew me in...it was so pretty and unique. Such a pretty piece! I had to have her :) She cost a little above the budget I was comfortable with, but I just couldn't resist! She was more worn and tired than the picture shows so I figured painting her up would make a world of difference. I think it was spot on! I used Annie … [Read more...]
