Freshly done in Antoinette with glass knobs and those darling trim pieces at the bottom. Perfect for a little (or big) girl’s room!
make this set pop! Wouldn’t you agree?
No before picture-we aren’t very good at that it seems-sorry! Imagine a big brown blah china cabinet. Great lines and style but boring…..
Add lots of silver paint, black glaze and gorgeous wallpaper on the back and voila!
Found at a yard sale a bit down the road, this piece had potential but was definitely past its prime! The manufacturer’s name sold me and I handed over my money.
This project was quick and easy and we think the difference is remarkable!! Be sure to click on the pictures to enlarge them!

This little washstand was given to me and the first time I saw it, I was in love with its lines and possibilities (I also thought I had a picture of it but it seems not) Hubby spent a couple three hours sanding it and we added glass knobs for access.
Lots of people have admired her but no one stepped up to buy her so I brainstormed and came up with this – lovely, no?!
Today’s dilemma – do I distress and wax or buff and let her age naturally? What do you think?

Yes, I said gold and it is fabulous! Not my set but I am more than happy to tell you how proud we are of our partner who conceived and then executed this color combination! Imagine if you will, a dark, dingy well loved set and then look how it turned out with hours of work, love and patient painting and waxing!
Yep, it is beautiful!! And, yep, both are SOLD!

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!

There were a couple days of nice weather lately so everyone was painting and here are a few pictures of new items:
And there will be more in days ahead we will share with you!
Miss Sophia has been busy!
Okay, this has been here a few days but I really looked at it today and I love it!!! Made from what I first thought might be a chair, I now think it is made from a doll bed – maybe. To tell you the truth, I don’t know for sure, I’m going to have ask Miss Trixie. Chippy green over yellow paint, two tiny hinges, a sheet of glass and voila!!! A wonderful shelf!!

Loving the greens on this dreary, rainy day!
