A new buffet, a new dresser, a new dining set

New things in the shop and we’d love to share them with you!

First up is a lovely long dresser – maker unknown unfortunately.  Miss Evie painted her in APC’s Homeplate and then added new hardware to dress her up (I heard the original was UGLY!)

Originally made by White Furniture Company, this lovely buffet is painted in APC’s Freedom Road.  The white knobs are new, the rest original.  Sorry for the porch angle!

This set was a marriage made in Heaven!  A newer table with four vintage chairs (could the match be any better-I think not) and new upholstery – didn’t last 24 hours!

~SOLD!~

Lovely - didn't even get the chance to decorate it!

More new things headed in – we will share I promise!

What a Lamp!

I have to share this with you for two reasons – one, I ADORE the color and two, I love the components!  Look closely at the second picture.  It took me a few minutes to recognize those aluminum tumblers…on a black lucite base…with clear lucite discs separating the tumblers….sigh!

Easter Greetings!

I love vintage Easter postcards and have quite a few.  I have also sold quite a few over the years.  This one is one of the most interesting I have found.  Addressed to Miss Walls from Charley H,  it is a true penny postcard.  It must have been hand delivered because it was not sent through the mail.

Happy Easter to All of you – enjoy your day!

Two weeks have flown by – again!

The past two weeks have been filled with grandchildren, days at the shop, days preparing furniture for the shop and life in general!  We are all well and healthy and grateful for our blessings!  Blogging seems to have fallen to the bottom of the list – I apologize!

There are new things in the shop and things that have left already so I had better share the new items while they are here!!

New Pieces in the Shop!

Miss Sophia brought in this terrific dresser this week!  She refurbished it in APC’s Homeplate and Smoke Signal, embellishing the details on the knobs, added a stencil and outlined the two top drawers.  Cute little Smoke Signal rings painted around the turned legs too.

~SOLD!~

A Mid Century Modern Mengel nightstand out of Louisville Kentucky.  Original paper label, brand inside drawer and little Mengel Man button on the drawer edge.  The shelf is adjustable and the lines are classic!  The hubby and I had fun refreshing the finish which was timeworn.

Next up is this cute little primitive cabinet I found recently.  Perfect as a cabinet or beside your bed as a nightstand perhaps – great in the bathroom too.  The shelves inside are removable.  I added the applique but the glass door knob and cute hinges were already on it.

Original paint, cleaned and distressed.  Applique added for interest.

A new Desk in the shop (Finally!)

~SOLD!~

We have had the hardest time lately finding desks that are in our price range or we like the looks and condition of to purchase!  This one fit the bill and didn’t need too much restoration.  There are six drawers for storage and after a little repair (thanks, honey!) we painted it in American paint Company’s Smoke Signal and Homeplate.  I love distressing this paint!  Some clear wax and here it is –

Absolutely NOT complaining about the sun spots!

Nice large surface for your vintage typewriter and office lamp – or newer versions!  Have a terrific weekend!!

APC’s Smoke Signal and Homeplate Dresser

An interesting piece Miss Sophia found and sent me after one weekend-marked on the back an unfinished wood product and a company name I couldn’t read.  It had been stained and kept nicely but was soooooo boringly brown..

Check it out now after a couple coats each of Homeplate and Smoke Signal!  Dry-brushed Homeplate on the blah handles and waxed them too.

We don’t normally stage them in the kitchen but the spot was vacant – lol!
