Summer Break Is Over!

These last two months have been super busy. The last time I wrote a post I was in the middle of packing and looking for a new home. It was not fun and since we are not in the market to buy a new home, rental properties are scarce. In a month I did find a new home and the rush was on to move, clean and unpack. I also had to continue to pick and paint furniture pieces to put in my booth. I don't know about anyone else but I don't like having summer's like this. Crazy busy!

Since I started my business in March I have painted 200 pieces and I am thankful everyone that have purchased my pieces loves them. Here is a few pieces I worked on the last two months.

 This beautiful white maple chest I simply distress around the edges and gave it clear knobs.

This vintage drop leaf table I painted it turquoise and once dry I added a clear glaze with white paint to give it a different effect. Can you see it?

This gorgeous maple chest dresser is my favorite. I was sanding to remove some of the paint and before I knew it looked like this. I love how this piece turned out.

I came across this vintage toddler desk and chalkboard and I just love the way they looked so I didn't paint them. I found a couple of bar stools and love how they turned out! The black piece on top well this pieces was an ugly pukey green so I gave it new life. Here is a tidbit - All the pieces I paint I always wax or use a water base vanish. On dining tables I use a water base poly.

I enjoyed writing this post for you all and I have so many more pieces to share with you in the next few weeks. Thanks for stopping by and go out and create something beautiful!
