Playing catch up…June’s furniture goodness

I have been a total blogging slacker lately…sorry! I have been so busy with projects and the kiddos being home from school and all that entails I just don’t have it in me to put words together worthy of being read by all of you at the end of the day. 


So now that we are halfway through July let’s recap all the project June held for me…ahhh…I’ll try to be better…I promise. 


Let the before and afters roll…


First up a dining table and 4 chairs got a sleek new look.

::Black Fox Dining Set::



Painted SW Black Fox and left smooth and sleek with no distressing. It was hard…sooo hard not to break out my lil’ friend the sanding sponge…but I resisted.


The best pic of the true fabric colors…

What no after shots of the finished table? Umm…yea…no…can you say lazy. I just couldn’t bring my self to reassemble the table just to take it apart again for my customer to take home. Yep…lazy.

Next up…a sweet little side table that had seen better days.

::Orange Pop::
Love this pop of orange! I went with SW Copper Harbor with heavy distressing and antiqued with a dark walnut stain. 


So it doesn’t matter how many times I see it I still swoon every time I see a piece painted in aqua. This beaut is no exception. I tried a new for me technique with Vaseline for a more chippy look. At first she looked like a turquoise cow with large brown spots after I removed the Vaseline…not so cute. But after feathering in more paint and working the sanding sponge I could not have more pleased with the result!

::Aged Beauty::

Valspar Deep Aqua with heavy distressing and heavy glaze.

This antique pine dresser now has a new home in a sweet baby’s nursery. My client was looking for a dresser that would double as a changing table and this lovely fit the bill. 

::Just for Baby::
We went with SW White Raisin for the perfect pale yellow.


This estate sale find was a large blank canvas…

::Vintage Ruby::

These pictures are terrible of the finished product and absolutely don’t do it justice buuuut it’s all I got. This dresser is finished in SW Crabby Apple and has golden oak accents.

Vintage inspired papers line the drawers…

My customer requested a clean white finish for the vintage Jenny Lind bed.

::Crisp and Clean::
SW Snowball, no distressing, and a semi gloss sealer made for a nice white finish.

This fun side table has some unique lines and details.
::Golden Dreams::

ASCP Arles and dark wax…

::Sweet Dreams::


A little creamy SW Navajo White brightened this bed right up! Didn’t it turn out great?!

Whew! I have been a busy chick! Now there I will play catch up with creations form July this week. Happy weekend ya’ll!

    Hi Clara,
    Nice to meet you! Love this black and white dresser redo. Also I found your blank canvas dresser with your fabulous red and bird graphic. Love it!

    I am in deep love with the aqua and Brown table! Can this technique be done with knotty pine? I have a chest of drawers aspiring to grow up and be this beautiful, but I’ve heard you can’t paint knotty pine because the knots can’t successfully be covered.
