The Best of the Best

Well...it's Thursday night and I realized that I haven't done a Furniture Friday post in...errr...weeks? months? What with the Bazaar in June, moving stores, painting walls, installing moulding, working on custom orders, I just haven't found the time. So, this is a condensed Furniture Friday post of my favorite things currently in the store. Most of these are pieces I haven't already blogged about but really love. So, here goes...


I had this small executive desk finished for about two weeks before I dropped it off. I took straight over to Blue Chair before we moved in but hadn't put new knobs on it. I took a handful of sample knobs over to see which ones I liked and ended up LOVING the mismatched look of them so left it. I just love how simple yet fun this desk is!

The Barcelona Orange side table was completed by one of the Paint and Play Workshop participants! Not bad, huh?! 


I blogged about this one earlier in the week. My first Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint Makeover. 


Patti lent her creative touch to this dresser! Florence with a touch of Old White, Graphite damask stenciling and dark walnut wood stain on top!


This is a special dresser, designated to help fund the Cornerstone Bible Church brand new MOPS group. As much as I love the curvy, frenchy, chunky pieces of furniture, I'm a total sucker for a simple piece with chunky wood knobs. What makes this one so special are the knobs and the inside.


The knobs have images from vintage sewing patterns decopauged on them with a coat of dark wax. The insides of the drawers are lined with the same vintage patterns to add a fun, visual interest that coordinates with the knobs!


The outside is painted in Milk Paint, Lexington Green that really shows off the "pickled" effect on this dresser from years of cracked varnish.


This coffee table is RAD! I'm not usually into that mid-century look but this was such a unique piece I couldn't pass it up. The top is a laminate finish with gold starburst pattern all over it! Someone is just going to love it!


I've had this wardrobe for a really long time, but I still really like it. This is another milk paint piece painted in Sea Foam Green.


I threw this one in there because my 5-year old painted it. She picked out the Napoleonic Blue along with the exact piece of burlap to cover the seat.


And, the vintage gas pump. Cool!

As we continue to settle in, I'm hoping to get back into the Thursday night/Friday morning furniture posts regularly.

In the meantime, I have some great shots of the outside with our new color and signage...all done by hand!



Making good use of the abundant window space with side by side chalkboards for messages, sale notices or anything else fun and worth mentioning!

  4. I just saw this green dresser at MMS...love it. I have some green similar to that, though not milk paint.
    What I love... is the drawers lines with patterns and the faces from the patterns on the knobs!
    Great detail!
