A Little Bit of Provence – SOLD

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!)




Sigh……lovely Provence!!

Aubusson Dining Room Table and Chairs

New in the shop this week is this large dining room table and 6 chairs.  Lovely in Aubusson with a dark stained top and the fabric on the chair seats compliments it beautifully!  Miss Sophia says this table came with 4 additional leaves but she only painted two to include!

Great legs!

Check out that fabric and the chair stencil

If you enlarge the pictures you’ll also get a peek at the matching sideboard/buffet behind it.

Sigh…….lovely Provence!

ASCP Provence and Dark Walnut – the perfect pairing!

Between the raindrops this past week Miss Sophia has managed to complete this beautiful thing and it is now in the shop for your enjoyment!  Provence and dark walnut are naturally beautiful together as this piece proves!

Every one of her 67" is gorgeous!

Check out the details!

Last, but certainly NOT least, the beautifully stenciled end!

ASCP (Annie Sloan Chalk Paint) in Provence

This set is a happy collaboration between Miss Trixie and Miss Sophia – our expert Provence painter since she has done sooo many pieces in that fabulous color!!

 SOLD-thank you very much!!

The fabric on the seats is just wonderful with the colour!!

And on this dreary rainy COLD day, we need a bright spot to feast our eyes on!

Happy September!!

Must have taken a mini vacation last week although I didn’t go anywhere.  Either that or I had nothing to tell you about which doesn’t seem likely either.  End of the summer doldrums?  Perhaps….I am looking forward to fall!  We seem to have a similar idea in the shop-check this out –

Yep, Annie Sloan’s Provence on both the table and the chairs and doesn’t that fabric match it perfectly. How is that for a gentle step toward fall?

Happy Labor Day Weekend all – be safe!
