" BEFORE ", not bad but too expected!

What a shape this amazing vintage table has, right? 
Bigger than it actually appears in these photos.

All of her curves give her so much charm!
I have painted this piece in a gray matte finish and coated with a sheer layer of brown glaze. This gives it the look of piece of reclaimed wood or driftwood. 
This table is heavy, solid and a really great shape and size.

So there you have it, it was good before, but I think it has more charm now. This table is available to purchase

Thanks and have a lovely day!

If You Could See My Face...You Would See Me Smiling From Ear To Ear!


 Crowd-Pleaser, right here, folks!

It is not very often I find an antique piece of furniture in this great of shape! I mean it is seriously in 95% new condition. The date on the bottom states "made in 1962 by Jasper Furniture Company". They are still in business today and every piece in heavy, solid and so well built.

Yes, it was really great before, but...after I sanded the drawer fronts, primed them and then painted the drawers with a white glossy paint, it looks AMAZING, don't you think? Now, it looks like a piece from this decade! Simply refreshed:)  I kept the original hardware..cause they all too are amazing. Gold hardware on the legs. The entire piece is walnut except for the top, it is a wood grain formica made to match the finish on the outer frame.

Height 29"
Width 30"
Depth 18"

I have this setting in my entry...looks fab! You could have it next to your bed, in a child's bedroom, or for some of you that have large scaled living room furniture, use it as a side table!! 

Endless style and possibilities...

This is available now 
HERE on ETSY for purchase!

Vintage Hairpin Stool in Chevron!

I am loving how this little fella turned out! The vintage legs are so cool and I did of course use my favorite fabric to recover the comfy cushion!
Available HERE on my ETSY shop!

Speaking of Turquoise and Green..
look at this little cottage I found on the
HGTV website.
This thing's making some sweet granny 
really happy;)

Re-Designed Credenza or Dresser in Teal and Rosemary!

I was so angry at myself when I realized my 
impatient self:) forgot to take a "before" photo.
Now I just have the after shots!
But you can imagine how this must have looked before in its
dark pecan 1980's finish, right?
This piece is solid and heavy wood and in near mint 
condition.  I just thought it needed to find a new home
in a playroom or bedroom.
I think it would look great with a television on top 
or even books stacked up?

This piece may be purchased on my 
ETSY shop

Hope you have a bright and sunny day!!
