Originally a sewing machine cabinet, it is now…

a terrific little coffee table!  Out junking a couple of weeks ago I came across this piece and immediately fell in love!  The hubby NOT so much – it was filthy, missing chunks here and there and generally a mess, but I knew what it had been and I loved the idea of what it could be!  (After hours of scrubbing, filling, sanding and scrubbing again, she was ready to paint and I envisioned her in dark grey – APC’s Freedom Road.)

Anxious to get started I again forgot to take before pictures but just picture a mess!  Someone managed to take several inches off each leg and there isn’t a wobble to be found – amazing to me!

A couple of coats of Freedom Road, some distressing and a coat of clear wax and she is now in the shop looking for a new home!

Miss Sophia’s Barn Wood Technique

This is a terrific farm table set that Miss Sophia gave the barn wood treatment to on the top of the table and the bench.  The chairs were sprayed in a nice coordinating color.  And it sold in less than 24 hours.

And this buffet in Smoke Signal is a great go-with piece!

APC’s Freedom Road – a warm gray on a fabulous dresser!


LOVE this piece, LOVE the two tone, LOVE the storage, LOVE the original hardware too!

IMG_9623This is the first time we’ve used this particular gray – we’ll be using it again and again I am positive!  Looks so fab with the natural finish!  Manufactured by Davis Cabinet Company out of Nashville, Tennessee, it has terrific lines! The original hardware is a bonus.
