Miss Sophia and I agree that we love RED, especially when a project turns out this lovely! A vintage Bassett piece, can’t you see this as a tv stand or a double sink vanity or a sideboard…or even a fab dresser?
Pretty in pink and ready to serve as a desk or a vanity-lots of drawers for storage and a double deep one on the bottom right. Love the vintage style and no handles ( pull areas underneath the drawer edges allow easy access).

This set was a special product for a special lady but we wanted to share her color vision! Miss Sophia painted her arms off to get it ready quickly and it turned out very nicely:
I almost could live with this bright color!

Three weeks ago, hubby and I took a quick trip to Southern Oregon and we found this in Roseburg! Loved that it was solid wood and that the trim details were pretty much intact. All the knobs – lovely!!!
After two coats of Annie Sloan’s Florence and some dark wax, voila!
Florence still makes my heart sing!
include a few different items:
goes a loooong way on an old oak dresser! Updates the sad, dried out wood wonderfully and breathes new life into the piece. Add some glass knobs and handles and a new key for locking away treasures and you are set! Dresser, sideboard, flat tv stand?
(I know, we NEED to take BEFORE pictures; sorry, we get so excited and forget!)

for more than 5 and 1/2 years in pieces, no less! (I took the auctioneer’s word for it that everything was in the pile!) I could never get all the pieces together in one spot and eventually they were buried in the middle of the garage surrounded by many larger things. Here she is today, assembled and painted in Florence chalk paint:
(And those cords have got to hide!)

Three new pieces in the shop today painted with the last of our Annie Sloan cans. Here they are!
Stay tuned for some CeCe Caldwell projects – loving this new paint line too!!
This is another of those pieces without a before picture-again, picture brown blah and boring. Fresh Old White chalk paint and a little dark wax to highlight its lines along with the original hardware make it much more noteworthy!

and I probably always will-such a peaceful color…
Generally, in this business you must set a budget and do your best to stick to it when purchasing pieces of furniture for resale. Every once in awhile, I tend to fall in love and the budget goes out the window. These are two of those times…..
The first piece – a game table! I have never found one and this one had such pretty lines and was so intriguing that I overlooked the repairs needed and the brass feet that had to be added-there was only one original one on there. The repairs included not only the usual gluing and filling and sanding to even things out, but two of the feet were broken and basically missing. Could I see past that gorgeous pedestal base – um, no. Still – the top opens to a 32″ square for games, puzzles, extra dining room, etc.
My second piece that I adored on sight! (and paid much more for than I usually do!) This one had not so pretty fabric on the seat but was basically in good shape. (Hubby was fascinated with the two screws and rings that attached the seat to the frame)
Yep, hubby, I paid more than I usually would but I now know you have mad skills (not for those missing legs tho) when it comes to most repairs and you have more patience than I do, but I have the vision and they were worth it, I promise!
