The Old Town Spring Sale

Good Morning!!!  Long time no see!!  I know I am so bad about writing posts!  I'm really sorry!  Life just seems to take over and I never make the time to sit down and write something.  And I keep telling you guys that I am going to be better.  Thanks for hanging in there with me!!  Okay... I wanted to show you some pictures from the Holiday Shopping Event that we hosted in Old Town Spring.  We had the sale outside of The Chocolate Lounge and The Pink Chandelier.  It was a beautiful weekend, but VERY windy and Sunday was VERY cold!!  There was one casualty of the wind...

  The wind knocked it over and broke the mirror.  Oh well.  This will make a really interesting chalkboard!  But overall I felt like the sale was a big success!! I even got to meet a Follower in person!  Thanks Jen for coming out!!!  We had a great time and Avery from The Chocolate Lounge was a HUGE help!!  You guys should definitely go check out her adorable shop and get some great chocolate!!  Here are some pictures from the event...
White chalkboard and decorative piece still available.
Buckets and chalkboards still available!
Basket trunck and white wood piece still available!

Chalkboard framed mirror - Sold
Aqua table - still available for $135.
 There are 2 of these white mirrors and they are amazing!!  My sister-in-law, Kim, painted them.  They are antique mirrors and she painted them a beautiful soft white and then lightly distressed them.  They are sooo pretty!  They are both still available for $99 each or $175 for the pair.  Let me know if you are interested!   We also have 2 pieces of furniture left from the sale.  The first one is the adorable aqua table or desk that you saw in the picture above.  Here are some more pictures...

 The 2nd piece is a white oval coffee table.  It is so cute!!  Here are some pics...

Let me know if you guys see anything that you are interested in!!  I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas!!  I am a little stressed about it since I just started my shopping yesterday and haven't finished yet!!  YIKES!!!

Pretty Grey Buffet

Hey Guys!  I hope you are having a great week!  Mine has been a bit crazy (as usual), but we have made it through another day!  Thank you, Jesus!!  I just wanted to show you guys how the buffet turned out.  Here is the Before picture...

We got this from a very sweet lady at a garage sale at her house.  We got it for a steal!  It needed a few repairs, but overall was in good condition.  I knew as soon as I saw it that I wanted it to be painted a soft grey.  So... we sanded it down, primed it, and then painted it with some "Oops" paint that we got at Home Depot.  I scored when I found that can of paint!  I LOVE LOVE LOVE the color!  It is very soft and pretty.  I plan to use it again and again!!  We also decided that this piece should have quite a bit of distressing, so we went to town!!  So here is the buffet all prettied up...

I LOVE it!!  I think it turned out so pretty!!  This one is for sale!  If you are interested, let me know!!  I hope you all have a great night!! 

PS - a bit of good news...We finally sold the cream colored Waterfall dresser (see below).  Thank you, Becky!!  Love you!!

French Dresser turned Fabulous TV Console!!

Hey Everyone!  I hope you are having a great week!  We have gotten several new pieces done lately (which I will show you at the end of this post), and I wanted to show you one that we transformed for a client.  She was looking for a long dresser that she could use as a TV Console in her living room.  I looked and looked, but could not find the perfect dresser to paint for her.  Then I got to thinking (scary, I know)....what about the dresser in our entry way.  Remember this...

I have always loved this dresser, but the missing drawer has always bothered me.  I know that the basket was not exactly the right size and could have looked a lot better.  That was on "The To Do List" for like 3 years.  Seriously.  Oh well.  Anyway... I sent a picture of it to our client and she LOVED it!!  The empty space would work perfectly for her DVD player.  In fact, she asked us to take out another drawer for another TV component.  She also asked us to paint it black.  Yikes!  I had never painted anything bigger than a chair in black.  I was a little nervous, but it turned out great!!  Our client was very happy!! 

Here are a couple of other finished pieces...

And here is our latest purchase.  It is to be painted a soft grey tomorrow.  I can't wait to see how it turns out.  I will post "After" pictures soon.

That's all for now!  We still have several pieces that haven't sold.  See my last post and give me advice!!  PLEASE!!  I need it!!  Thanks Guys!!

Twice Lovely Giveaway

Hey again!  I also wanted to tell you guys about a super cool giveaway on Twice Lovely's blog.  She is giving away an Artograph Projector!!  I SOOOO want one!  She shows one great example of how to use it on her blog and there will be more examples coming!  If you haven't checked out her blog, you really must do that!  She does some beautiful things!!  Have a good way!!

In Him,


I Need Advice!!

Okay people...I need your help!!  We have a few pieces that have been for sale for several weeks and just will not sell!  I need your advice on what to do.  Do we need to repaint them in a different color?  Take better pictures?  Or just keep at it??  Please help!!

#1 - Cream colored Waterfall Dresser with oil rubbed bronze knobs.  I think it is so pretty!!  It is so classic and would provide GREAT storage!!  Here are the pictures that we have listed for it...Does it need better (staged) pictures??

#2 Cream Colored Bookshelf  - This is painted the same color as the Waterfall Dresser and is also distressed.  We used it in our bedroom to hold the TV along with all of the components and DVDs, etc.  Any suggestions???

#3 Aqua Antique Secretary Desk - Okay, I REALLY don't understand this one.  I think it so adorable!

#4 White Distressed Dresser - Another one I really don't get.  We have done several larger white dressers like this and they usually sold pretty quickly.  I don't get why this one won't sell.  It is in great condition and has been painted and distressed.  It would make a great TV stand, or buffet, or entry way piece.  Does it need to be a different color?? 
Please don't be afraid to tell me what needs to be changed!!  I really need to move these pieces!!  If you see anything you like, let me know and I will make a deal with you!!!  :)

Here are some pictures of the whole experience...

Bird stencils, tin planters, and distressed finial...
Decorative pieces...
