Miss Sadie ( and her hubby) painted this cabinet black, removed the doors for open storage below and love the traditionally styled buffet “upcycled”. Use it as a buffet or sideboard in your dining room or as a media cabinet for that flat screen television!

Miss Sophia’s take on an upcycled French Provincial style stereo cabinet is below. She painted it in APC’s Fireworks Red, added two fabulous clock face knobs, and painted out the cupboards in both Fireworks and Graphite. Remotes have access through the wire mesh in the doors!

And there you have two very different interpretations!
Miss Evie and I have done a little painting (alright – to keep it honest – hubby painted the media center) in the last week. Miss Sophia is also working on projects to be in soon.

Miss Evie got lucky and found a French Provincial lingerie chest the other day – I’m not sure where you might be but these are pretty scarce in our neck of the woods and always sell fast!

And she was lucky enough to pick up a night stand at the same place!

Terrific finds, Miss Evie!
I’m getting to the bottom of my last can of Smoky Mountain but I think Voyager by APC is going to be a lovely replacement. Meanwhile, hubby found this lovely drum table for a fantastic little price so I saw the need to break it out and use a little.

Lovely lines, terrific hardware, lovely color!
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.
