Happy Spring everyone!!

And Happy Mothers Day to all of the moms out there!

I recently completed 2 pieces.    The look and finish of these pieces are different from each other, but they are both very cute!

The first piece I painted on all 4 sides, and added a French poem stencil from Royal Design Studio.  I used Annie Sloan Chalk paint and added a lot of different layers of paint for a unique finish.   The top and drawers are a slightly different color from the body of the piece. cab table1

Just in case you are interested – below is the piece before I painted it.    Very different, right?   Its amazing what paint, hardware and imagination can do for a piece!

The next piece I completed is a dresser by Drexel.  This piece is one of the best constructed pieces I have worked with.    I stripped and refinished the top, then painted the body multiple of layers of green milk paint from Miss Mustardseed’s collection.    I’m calling the finish “weathered green”.   I also stripped the lacquer off of the brass hardware and polished them up so they shine beautifully.   (Tip:  Barkeeper’s Friend powder is a wonderful brass polish!  I purchased mine at Target.)

I love the curves and detailing on this piece.    I omitted the faux keyhole covers on the final piece as I thought they were too much.   I prefer to let the curves be the focal point.

These pieces will be for sale at Lucketts Spring Market next weekend, May 16 and 17th.   I will have a handful of mirrors with painted frames, as well as a LOT of silver-plated flatware, and some sterling pieces.   There will be lots of sparkly things under my tent!!  🙂     I’m unsure of my exact location just yet, I just know I will be in the “Field of Gold”.  So far the weather looks great!    Cross your fingers that it will stay that way!

Hope to see you there!
