Before and After: White Midcentury Dresser

Excited to share one of our newest listings with you.  This dresser, originally made by the Hooker furniture company, had a great retro look.  These pieces usually stand out in the vintage stores and really would look amazing without any refinishing at all.  Here’s the before photo of this piece. See?  This piece was cool.… Continue reading Before and After: White Midcentury Dresser

Update: MidCentury Paloma

Not too long ago we introduced you to our Paloma Highboy in a post here.  After refinishing both the dresser and hardware in Annie Sloan’s chalk paint and posting it, I couldn’t shake the feeling that it wasn’t quite finished yet.  I loved the subtle lavender color yet the hardware just wasn’t doing it for… Continue reading Update: MidCentury Paloma

Annie Sloan’s Florence

I love a bright pop of color in any living space.  Sometimes it can be something as small as a throw pillow that adds that unique brightness to a room.  Other times it’s a bold wall color that can really make a statement in a home.  Many times, however, your statement color can originate from… Continue reading Annie Sloan’s Florence

Refinishing Mid Century

I never knew, as I started out refinishing furniture, that this topic could be considered controversial. I of course realize that everyone has different tastes, styles, likes and dislikes when it comes to décor, but I had no idea just how heated people could get when it came to mid century pieces.  I love the… Continue reading Refinishing Mid Century

Thrift Store Scores

I have a favorite shop I routinely visit each week to find new pieces and inspiration.  This shop is only open a few days each week and never open in the evenings.  I try and visit at least once or twice before the weekend and then on Saturday send my husband in for final approval… Continue reading Thrift Store Scores

Five Furniture Favorites

Loving this week’s furniture finds.  I have several shops that are reappearing here with more impressive pieces as well as a few new ‘favorite’ shops.  Our shop has two bedroom pieces available, refinished in Annie Sloan’s Florence chalk paint.  Both would add a pop of color and brightness to your bedroom space – which is… Continue reading Five Furniture Favorites
