A Quickie Post

I've been rushing around the store this morning trying to finish up two pieces of furniture, clean up refinishing messes/toy messes/furniture clutter in the back and tackle a last minute custom framing job for a customer in a measly two hours! All I can say is, thank goodness for you tube and unlimited viewing of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse to occupy the two year old!

Unfortunately, I didn't get it all done, but I wanted to update the site with my five new pieces this week.

The pictures are rather lack luster as I didn't stage and shoot them before they were placed in the store. But, each one of these will get their individual blog post as the before and after jobs are extreme! I mean....really extreme!

In the meantime, you'll have to make due with this:


This is a fabulous hutch with a butcher block top that has be re-stained with dark walnut. The top and base are painted in a taupey beigey grayish color with a dark walnut glaze there are new crystal knobs. Stay tuned for the process pictures of this piece. I will leave you with the teaser that it was originally orange, yellow, green and purple with a painted rose on the side. I'm not kidding. It was horrific.


This FABULOUS French Style Buffet is perfect as a dresser, TV cabinet or china cabinet. The base is painted in Annie Sloan French Linen with white accents and sealed with dark wax. The top has be re-stained a dark walnut and all of the original hardware is intact.


A simple but quick fix, this dresser is really well made. I used Annie Sloan Chateau Grey (which is more of a sage green color than grey) and watered it down so it went on more as a white-wash and kept the drawers the original wood stain. Honestly, I want to white wash the drawers with ASCP Old White but didn't have time to finish. So, in the meantime it will stay like this until I get to the actual finishing. And, who knows someone might like it like this.

For the next piece, you have to use your imagination...


Almost finished! It's a small curio cabinet or enclosed book case. The frame is painted with ASCP Aubusson and the inside is painted with ASCP Old White. I used modge podge to adhere a left over piece of fabric to the back that has complimentary colors and pulled from my stock of knobs for the awesome anthropologie teal glass knobs. The whole piece still needs to be waxed, the glass needs to be put back in and the doors need to be attached. By the end of the day or tomorrow it should be ready to sell.


Lastly,  I grouped all of my little round tables together and the one at the top left is new this week. Nothing overly special, just a nice wood pedestal table with a chippy distressing.
