There is a sewing machine in my garage that has resided there for about 20 years. I always wanted to restore it because it seems to be an unusual machine. It was in sad shape to begin with and the years haven’t been kind! So in an attempt to make room for hubby, I have decided to piece it out. The latest:
Painted in Black, Paris grey, Beach Glass and White.
Enjoy! I won’t be back until next Wednesday and the computer at home has croaked. Hubby’s laptop is confusing so you may not hear from us til then – Happy Labor Day, Everyone!!
It’s been awhile since I posted things I had found while out shopping (or junking as my almost 6 year old granddaughter refers to it!) local estate and garage sales. Unfortunately there are no before picture because I only realized what a cute grouping it was when they were already here in the shop!
One of two wallpaper cabinets
This one has a handle on top for easy transport
Plain brown to Country Grey
Probably the oldest rocking chair I have found
Love skinny bookshelves! The table has been repaired and repainted, the chair and bookshelf just scrubbed well!
Obviously, shades of pink and white are appealing to me lately!
That epic shopping day hubby had is still turning up in t he shop so I’m sharing the latest pieces. Picture the garage filled with furniture and us trying to get to these smaller pieces on a regular basis!
We wallpapered the damaged areas and painted it out in classic black. Glass was added to the top level to protect the surface from spills, etc. ~SOLD~
Closeup of the pattern-I love this one!
Painted in Beach Glass and white to highlight the interior. Both were done this way.
A little staging helps too!
Don’t worry, I’ve been sending him out on other missions and there is more to come (and be done!). Have a lovely weekend, all!
We expected Dollar Bill to be a bit green but this is definitely a blue gray to us. Not to worry, the set turned out beautifully! Miss Evie did a terrific job as usual!

The completed set – on hold according to the tag

Love this wonderful drop leaf table! We think the Dollar Bill compliments the original finish on the table top beautifully!
So very happy that one of the partners found this milk paint (well, that’s what it is called by the manufacturer at least). No matter, it is a fabulous black!
My latest pieces painted in Lamp Black and then clear waxed:
~BOTH PIECES SOLD!~
Vintage desk and long time companion chair – redone
Love the way the top conceals the work surface and cubbies!
Such a lovely, deep black!

A while back I showed you all a bunch of before pictures after hubby went shopping and found a number of pieces – here is the first of the afters!
APC’s Beach Glass sanded back to the white below. We added 10 glass knobs for some bling!
Just to remind you of the before:
More to come as we finish up some of the projects!
Picked up a stack of 6 of these filthy little things recently, gave them a good bath and then decided to paint them with chalk paint. The dark one is ASCP in Graphite, the blue is American Paint Co.’s Beach Glass and the white is a homemade version of chalk paint (not nearly so nice but it was available!). They turned out really pretty after a bit of wet distressing and waxing. Sold VERY quickly too!
Graphite, Unknown White and Beach Glass
And here are the last of the six:
Graphite, Unknown White and Paris Grey
I put a picture of these on Facebook and they SOLD within minutes-thank you, Miss C!
