Yep, it's addicting!

Craigslist is like crack, really it is.  You find items that people think are out of date, trash or have zero value to them and with a little TLC you can bring pieces back to life. It's completely addicting!  Take this little lovely...

Worn, little dated and had some cosmetic issues BUT had great bones! SOLD!  I decided to update her and give this little lovely new lease on life.  Fixed all her cosmetic issues, primed and painted in Creamy by Sherwin Williams.  To give her a little something different, I stamped the doors with a french motif with a waterproof ink.  Finally, distressed her in all the right places and finished with a polyacrylic finish. she is!

Beautiful, Curvy, Trendy........ a beautiful table looking for a loving home.  I refinished this French Provincial table (can you say Va Va Va Voom) in Vintage by Valspar, lightly distressed and then Ralph Lauren glaze tinted in Canyon black used. This table would look stunning with bold and bright accessories.....oh, the possibilities!  SOLD

I'm in love....

Is it wrong to be sooooo in love with a piece of furniture that you say, "Good Morning Beautiful!" to it on a daily basis? I think not! I found this dresser at the local Salvation Army for $35, YES, 35 dollars!  She was in rough shape and needed lots of love but she had unbelievable lines it was love at first sight.  I stripped  her to discover a beautiful wood grain underneath but she was missing so much of the veneer finish that if I tried to keep it would look too patchy. Sooooo, I painted her in Black Canyon by American Accents added a light distressing, sealed with a satin finish by General Finishes and finally new hardware with an oil rubbed bronze finish.  My, oh my she turned out gorgeous....judge for yourself!
