Handsome Dresser in Artissimo

navy 1 EC

Ooops...I did it again. I painted a piece without snapping a picture of it first. Why do I do that?? My apologies. I like to show you the before so that you can fully appreciate the after and how far it has come. I also love to showcase the awesomeness that painting a piece can create! So...without further ado...I painted up the cutest dresser using Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint in … [Read more...]

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...]

Milk Paint Custom Mixed Cutie

TrophyShutter Grey Dresser 1 - EC

If you recall, I posted a blog post about choosing paint colors two weeks back - more specifically if I should decide a color based upon what color I WANT to paint or to paint a piece a color that will sell easily (particularly white). Well...I decided it was more important to go with your vision and opt just to stick with my process of creativity that drew me to this business in the first place … [Read more...]

Snow Day Therapy

buffet new

After great anticipation, we finally had our first official snowstorm of the season today. We were slated to get 4-8 inches, but it turned out to be just 2 inches after all the hubbub. I thought it was kind of a dud, but it was so pretty after the snow fell. Plus we had our first snow day of the school year and my girls were pretty happy about that! I was too to be honest... I had just … [Read more...]

Desk Makeover in Custom Mix Milk-Paint

MP desk 1- EC

 I thought this desk was pretty cute with that pretty rope detailing. She was pretty run of the mill ordinary, but I liked her. I thought she would be easy to pretty up. I mixed up a custom mix of Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint in Eulalie's Sky, Grainsack and a touch of Artissimo to make a gorgeous shade of soft blue. I used the Bonding Agent as well on this piece. I distressed it up a bit … [Read more...]
