Flow Blue Beauty

 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

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!

Tricycle Buffet Makeover

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...]
