Nautical Curved Top Dresser

I typically get an idea for a piece shortly after it arrives and about 90% of the time I stick with that original plan and see it through.  This wasn’t the case for this antique curved top dresser.  I have been looking for one for ages, similar to our blue curved top dresser we did… Continue reading Nautical Curved Top Dresser

Blue and White

Here’s a look at our two newest listings.  We are so excited about both of these pieces.  The blue highboy is truly from a long ago era, but this pop of color really gives it a fresh, modern look.  The knobs on this antique dresser, from Anthropologie, add a bit more color and uniqueness to… Continue reading Blue and White

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

Paloma…and a little Graphite

This is a photo of our newest listing – a spacious four drawer midcentury dresser.  I refinished it using a ‘new’ (for me) color from Annie Sloan’s paint line – Paloma.   Paloma is such a cool color and I was excited to try it out.  Before starting this project, I debated on a color… Continue reading Paloma…and a little Graphite

Blue Antique Chest of Drawers

I’ve been really excited about this old dresser.  We found this curved top piece a few weeks ago, right around the same time we purchased our gray china cabinet, and as I was completing the hutch, I began brainstorming different refinishing ideas for this vintage beauty. Here are a few before photos of this small,… Continue reading Blue Antique Chest of Drawers
