Some finished pieces

Well, first let me start by saying that I am so sorry that I have not been keeping the blog updated!! I am a Special Education Counselor during the school year so the last month I have been consumed with getting the school year started. But we have also been painting so I thought I would show you a few finished pieces and a hint of some things to come...

This bookshelf is something that my husband's parents had in their house when he was growing up. We have used it in our house for the last 8 years and I looked at it one day and realized how awful it was!! So we decided to paint it! We painted it a soft vanilla color and then distressed it. Who knew it could look so great!! This one is currently for sale!Here is a Before and After of an old dresser that we got off of Craiglist. We went with our favorite - WHITE!! But I really love how it turned out! I think it would make a great buffet or TV console. Not to mention a great dresser in a bedroom. This one is also currently for sale!!!
This is a pretty little antique dresser that we painted and distressed for a client. Look at those gorgeous legs and the lovely curves a long the bottom! LOVE it!!

This Waterfall dresser was in rough shape when we picked it up! The veneer was coming loose in places, but my sweet husband fixed it up! He is so awesome!! Then we painted the same vanilla as the bookshelf above. We decided on oil rubbed bronze knobs to add a simple charm. I really love this one! It is so classic and beautiful! It seems very Ralph Lauren to me. I know...I'm weird. It is also currently for sale.

And hear are some hints of some of the pieces that we are working on now...

More pictures to come soon! I promise to try and update more often (a lot more often!!). Have a great weekend!!!
