Vintage Kent Coffey Bow Front Dresser in Lincoln’s Hat

A gorgeous piece newly painted in Lincoln’s Hat which accents the lines and original hardware beautifully we think!  Clear wax finishes the process and gives the color depth and a satin feel.


On the sleeping porch so its at an odd angle-sorry!

We love our American Paint Company chalk, clay and mineral paint as you well know if you have been following this blog for long -lol!!

Fabulous King Sleigh Bed

First of all, so sorry but it has sold.  It turned out so beautifully that after all Miss Evie’s work I had to share – lasted 24 hours in the shop!

She found this heavy thing (ask me, I helped carry it!), hauled it home and painted it with Lincoln’s Hat chalk paint.  Then she had the idea of using a little gold gilding powder with their dark wax and proceeded to wear her arms out both waxing and then buffing it!


A bit of strategic distressing and voila’:


So hard to get a proper picture of just how subtle the waxing is – the new owner loves it!!
