The piece I am referring to is… Continue reading Mom…you missed a spot!

Bright and Cheery Pembroke Table

This table, a vintage Statton Pembroke accent table, made of the highest quality wood, looks smashing in its new shade of Annie Sloan’s Florence.  I love how it instantly brightens up any space.  The Pembroke style of this beautiful vintage table adds tons of versatility.  Open or closed, this piece will function perfectly in an… Continue reading Bright and Cheery Pembroke Table
