Sewing Table Redo

The awesome thing about painting furniture white is that if you ever tire of it, it is a great base for so many other colors. Today, amazing friends, I thought I would share one of the pieces I used to have in our old house that I no longer have room for in our new house. And yep I painted it...again! This is what this pretty little table looked like when I originally found it at a yard sale for $20 several years ago: It had pretty details but was showing some wear, especially on … [Read more...]

French Provincial Desk Makeover

Well hello there, Friends! Back again so soon? I'm so glad you are!  I have a furniture makeover to share with you today. Are you up for that? Today I'm sharing a desk that my neighbor asked if I could paint for her last Summer. To be honest, I really prefer not to paint furniture for other people. I just don't like the pressure that comes with it. What if I ruin it? Yikes! Plus I don't have the space nor the time to take on more than I already have. I did agree to paint this desk for my … [Read more...]
