More Sewing Machine Drawers

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!!

Cute Things Found Lately

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!

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!

More Before and After Projects

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!

American Paint Company – Dollar Bill

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!

Love this wonderful drop leaf table!  We think the Dollar Bill compliments the original finish on the table top beautifully!

 

Loving General Finishes Lamp Black Milk Paint!

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:

Chalk and Mineral Paint Sewing Machine Drawers

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!
