American Paint Company has done it now-made a color I am absolutely in love with – the perfect response to the Coco I adored previously!
Enter a sweet little brown table and my new jar of Sackcloth. I have been dying to try this color but other projects were in line with different colors chosen.
Manufactured by Butler Furniture, color by American Paint Company!
Miss Evie found a gorgeous antiques oak dresser and has created a beautiful focal point for any room! Original hardware, wooden casters and curved lines are all charming but the new color is outstanding! ~SOLD~
Cute, but a bit blah
More new colors to come – we are loving them!!!
A new color in the Ellis Collection from American Paint Company, we were intrigued to open the jar and take a look. Using it, we are in love!
And yes, that is Miss Evie’s 56 behind it
Our first completed piece:
Child’s vintage 5 drawer chifferobe
You will be seeing many more Crushed Tea pieces from us, I promise you!!
Unexpected MAJOR snowfall, recurring illnesses, and a shorter month to begin with has left us here on the 20th with no posts and no new pictures-so very sorry!!!
Here’s a Smoke Signal French Provincial Full size bed-it does come with regular rails but we are enjoying the new for-display-only ones.

And then there is Miss Sophia’s gorgeous Drexel Table in GF’s Basil with a dark stained top:

We have received some of the new Ellis Collection colors from American Paint Company so projects in new colors should be showing up soon! Hurry Spring!!!!
Found a terrific buffet with a rather strangely repaired (?) door. Told the hubby he could repair it and he did try although he was sure he couldn’t do it correctly. No matter, the price was right and I was sure he could and I prevailed, we brought it home, he gave it his best and it was a fail-so on to Plan B.
I’ve been listening to some of our customers and was happy to throw away the dang doors! Actually I saved the good one for another project.
After some hole filling, some gouge filling, some sanding and some cleanup, we painted it with my favorite paint color – RED! Switch out the handles to cute black painted knobs and we are in business-ta da!
Two drawers for storage, an adjustable shelf below for electronics and room for a good size flat screen on top. Sometimes ya just got to go with Plan B!
Here’s the second project I have done with it – I showed you the buffet/sideboard before. This was a sad little piece with chains, huge eye hooks, terrible finish but I knew it could be cuter and it is with Smoke Signal! So ugly I deliberately did not take a before picture…
It’s sunny today and this is the spot in the shop that is most glare-y for some reason-sorry.
APC’s Smoke SIgnal
On a separate note, sometimes you just have to change it up to make it more interesting. I just deleted the pictures of what this looked like before but it had a nice dark finish on a beautiful oak cabinet which you can see on the top. Decided to paint the base in Beach Glass and boy has the interest increased! ~SOLD~

Now how long will it take to sell, I wonder?
A lovely, vibrant retro green, Nana’s Cupboard takes this fairly common French Provincial dresser to new heights! Luscious, indeed!

We’ll definitely be using it again!
Look what showed up in the shop today! Will have to get non-rainy day pictures to switch out next week-sorry!
Cute black group-check out those chairs!
French Provincial done in Lincoln’s Hat ~SOLD~
Cute stand done in Versailles (we think)
Way to go, Miss Evie! Those are just wonderful!
Here are three more pieces new this week:
1975 vintage Grandfather Clock redone in APC’s Beach Glass
Smokey Mountain Chest of Drawers – SOLD
Vintage Sideboard in APC’s Smoke Signal-SOLD!
Miss Evie and I are holding down the fort this week. Miss Sophia went and sold all kinds of furniture before embarking on a week’s vacation in Mexico! (We are not complaining about her selling all those pieces of furniture but we might be a little jealous of the Mexican vacation-lol!) You all know furniture is a bit harder to find this time of year, right?
I have found a few pieces lately so here are the two latest:
A vintage Mersman drum table in GF’s Millstone – love!!
A vintage sewing cabinet in GF’s Lampblack with glass knobs added
P. S. Thanks to Mel for the cabinet-she turned out pretty good, huh??
