December Projects

 The title says it all. This is a taste of my work this month..

I'm too impatient to save the best for last so it's going first - this vintage chest, lined with cedar, made by "Lane."
 I painted the blue using Amy Howard's "vintage affliction." The fabric I picked up months ago simply because it was a great price, not because I had a project in mind for it. 

Serendipity means a "happy accident" or "pleasant surprise"; a fortunate mistake. Specifically, the accident of finding something good or useful while not specifically searching for it.

example: my brown and white fabric.

I lovveee the wood grain and the lines on this piece. I love it in a way that when it sold hours after bringing it to the shop, I instantly felt like I didn't get enough time to admire the beauty in person. 
Does this make me a crazy person? Possibly. But I know I'm not alone in the craziness, so I'm cool with it.

Moving along.. I picked up a pair of fantastically large wood shutters from my favorite, secret thrift store.

I painted the gray and distressed them. I picture them hanging on a wall of a room with tall ceilings (obviously.) They could work as a headboard too.

This turquoise sofa table (or desk, as it's being used) was purchased by a personal friend of mine so she sent me this pic. I love seeing my pieces in their new homes. 
((If you purchased something from me and are reading this, send me pics please!)

Next: Round side table with leather top. I painted the fabulous ornate legs with Amy Howard's "Kembel" and used a dark wax finish.

This green, 4 drawer chest was also done with Amy Howard products. 
The color is LouLou with both light and dark wax for the finish.
The campaign style cube in the front was a great find. It hung out in my Living Room for a few days before I was ready to part with it. Good thing, since it too sold the day I brought it to the store.
