Second Piece from The Palms Series

I painted another piece using the same colors of Annie Sloan chalk paint but mixed a little more Old White in to the Florence to get this Tiffany Blue color. I added paper to the inlays and the new knobs are from Anthropologie.



Isn't the shape of this table gorgeous?!?!?!



I'm currently working on the third piece of my, The Palms Series.  I'm hooked on this paint!!

My First Time Using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint

So, this was fun!  I've never used chalk paint before, ever! I'm a fan of latex because of all the color options and I'm an old school girl...why fix what isn't broken, right?  But, Oh my goodness yes!! I love this paint. I love layering colors and this is perfect for that, as you all probably know.  I'd been wanting to try it for awhile, but once the marketing director for Annie Sloan contacted me about using their paint, I had to give it a shot! So, here is my first piece.  I'm still debating on which wax to use to finish it off...taking suggestions!;-)




I papered the side insets with this beach scene.  You know me...always trying an unexpected touch.   






I hope you all enjoy this piece as much as I enjoyed painting it!  I'll be posting it over to Miss Mustard Seed's Friday Furniture Feature!

Blue Poster Bed Makeover

Confession...
As much as I love the clean modern look of certain furniture pieces, I REALLY love painting old antique pieces...the more aged the better. I love the way the paint looks after sanding an the texture a solid piece of wood gives. Combine that with blue, and that's perfection!







"BEFORE"


Enjoy the rest of your Spring Break!  I'm sharing this over at Miss Mustard Seed's Friday Furniture Feature!!!

French Provincial Triple Dresser

This style is always good.  I paired it with the glossy green to highlight the curves of this dresser. I'd love to see it mixed in a room with bold bright bedding, lots of flowers and a cool cozy rug. I am, however, craving warm sunny weather!

Metallic Makeover for a Client's Entry

I created a few ombre pieces this year but this one has pushed me further.  This was a client request which means a whole lot less room for error! I really love the new modern look.  This cabinet already had great lines and I'm happy my clients will be able to use this in their new entry.  What a treat for their guests!



I replaced the original hardware with new glass etched knobs.



I love a good "before and after"!

The Peacock Cabinet in Teal and Turquoise

So, anyone up for a fun "before & after"?


I used four colors of paint on this piece! I have to blend, blend and blend some more.  The workout I get with my arms is an added bonus!


Do you like my wall installation?  Or, am I the only one that LOVES the organic look and texture of curly willow branches?  I see them as art. I even added a piece of driftwood to the wall.



I've been wanting to use the pulls now for 2 years.  I think they're perfect with the peacock feathers.


I hope you all enjoy your week!  I have 2 special orders I'll be working on!
