New Things in the Shop this week

Miss Evie and I are holding down the fort this week.  Miss Sophia went and sold all kinds of furniture before embarking on a week’s vacation in Mexico!  (We are not complaining about her selling all those pieces of furniture but we might be a little jealous of the Mexican vacation-lol!) You all know furniture is a bit harder to find this time of year, right?

I have found a few pieces lately so here are the two latest:

A vintage Mersman Drum table in GF's Millstone - love!!

P. S. Thanks to Mel for the cabinet-she turned out pretty good, huh??

A new vintage dresser in GF’s Millstone

I love chalk paint – we all do –  but I also love General Finishes’ Milk Paint – this color is MIllstone which we chose to offset the gorgeous handles on this dresser.  (The last time I featured a piece done in their milk paint the company called to see if we wanted to stock it – very flattering but not feasible at this time.)


This is a lovely vintage dresser that I bought the second I saw it even with the tired, scratched finish – yep, the handles got me and the rest didn’t matter.  Upon further investigation, I fell in love with the lines, the drawers – one has a removable change holder and one is deep with cedar lining – and as always, the wooden casters and the craftsmanship.  No markings as to who made it – too bad.  (I try to have the hubby double check me so that I don’t buy a huge “project” but this one was loaded before he even saw it – he grumbled a little until he unloaded it and then agreed it was a good purchase!)


Lovely hardware!


Beautiful lines!

A little styling – needs a lamp!

Both hubby and I agree we love this milk paint – it covers beautifully, goes on like “butta” and waxes to a soft sheen.  We will continue to use it!
