Cute Rejuvenation!

Little Table but adorable!
Very old condition and not care, but when I start sand it I found the best wood grain ever.
I just left the grain How I discovered "original", because It was just great.
Painted the legs and a small little fix in this old legs here and there and that was all.
The top I use light wood stain and some very good wood protection,
Awesome table!
Hope you like it!

Until Next Time!

One More Miracle!

Another Dresser, Oh My!!!
This week only dresser make over.
This one I found, took me forever...
Three covers of thick, decades old paint, plus wall paper everywhere. I felt like an archeologist painstakingly peeling back the layers of time as to not harm the artifact buried underneath (I know, a little overdramatic).
Finally, with the stripper, I took everything off and left this sweet baby buck naked, I found the beauty of this lovely piece included the glass vintage knobs and the great old vintage wheels. Great and Awesome found!
Well this time I only paint the drawers but I left the top with just a dark wood stain. I choose a light cream color from B.Moore ( great paint), I did a little distress how you will see it in the picture.
Inside burlap covers for each drawer and I choose some dark  hardware for the perfect combination  with the top of the desk.

This piece I really love it!
Hope you like it

Until next time

Spring Time!!

Hello Friends,
Are we ready for my favorite time of the year?
I found two old homemade wood plant stands, impossible for me to leave alone without just a little makeover.

First one I painted to a New England Cottage style. The other one I partially stripped the old stain leaving some deep inside the joints and  added a red stain on top to give it a strong natural rustic feel.

They really come up very nice! Let see what you think...

Cranberry Spring!

Welcome Back!
I love Red Cranberry, so today I make the decision to paint this Desk that I've had for long time with one of my favorites color.
Too much work on this desk, to much repair and wood glue, but underneath really, great oak wood to work on!
Inside I chose burlap to line the drawers and a little cute flower stencil.
Well,it came up very nice, I left some picture of Before and After for you to enjoy, hope you like it!



See you soon,

Mail Box and Key Holder

Dear Friends, Today I tried a new color "Grey", I was inspired to use this color by the weather outside of my window, at the market. It has been so very cloudy and cold this pass week in Massachusetts. Instead of letting it depress me, I used it to inspire me!
I did some distress on the borders and I used an old metal Butterfly (that I rescued from a broken wind chime) and some dark varnish, to give the wood and the color some antique look. 
Hope you enjoy the Transformation from a coffee mug to a cute Butterfly!!!


One More time 
Thank you for visiting.
Until Next Time!!

Candle Holder with Box

Hello Friends!
Today I finally finished a project, that I found with my sister some time ago.
I liked how it looked when I found it (very rustic), but something wasn't quite right,  and I really didn't know what to do with it!!!
I  remembered when I used the red poinsettia color for the great dresser, that I all ready sold to a very lovely couple from Boston, Ma, so I said to my husband "I think I will try red again".
Instead of poinsettia I used a
 Red Bay from Benjamin More, it's a little bit more dark but I really like it.
Well here is, hope you enjoy it.

Until Next Time!!

Finest Seating ever...

Hello Dear Friends, I'm back with some great paint and great designs for some chairs that I found on the side of the road, Really!!. I still just don't believe what I found, and the beautiful transformation  it went through.
Well, the history is that my husband and I were driving home very late at night, on a dark back country road, and we passed by an old Victorian house that was having a lot of old stuff on the side of the road, abandoned, waiting to be picked by the Trashman. At that moment I said to my husband "did you see the chairs?", and he tiredly said "What?... What chairs???". I convinced him to stop and turn around, since there was no light (not even the moon)  we had to use the highlights, and as we drove by again, I  yelled "Those Chairs..!!" and he said "What about those chairs?". It was then; very late at night, in front of an old Victorian home, deep in the country, using only our headlights to see what we were grabbing, that I introduced my husband to "Curb Shopping" 

At home I stripped, sanded, gessoed, painted, painted again, and then again, and then added some distress (something that I love to do in furniture) to the chairs. I found some beautiful, multicolored fabric to reupholster the chairs with, that would accent the treatment. Before I knew it, I turned what someone threw out, into very classy and refined furniture.

Until next time and Thank you for stopping by.

I think this was one of the best MCC Craft Fairs. Loved the Boy Scouts helping at the door.  The day was sunny and the vendors were cheerful.  Many people were beginning their Christmas shopping. I purchased fruits and veggies and they were great too!
