Gorgeous French Country Table and China Cabinet!!

Thursday, June 11, 2015

I am so excited to share the latest pieces that I’ve recently refinished because the style is one of my absolute favorites! I scored this gorgeous French Country Grand Draw Leaf Dining Table at one of the auctions I frequent and I couldn’t wait to work some magic on it. Of course, it was originally unimpressive with it’s orange color and scratched surface but after some TLC and a new coat of paint, it looks AMAZING! I decided to paint the base grey and went with Lovilee’s Armour, which is a gorgeous neutral grey! I antiqued it with a bit of dark wax and I just love the outcome! The top got a new coat of walnut stain and also looks stunning.

I had previously purchased a large French Provincial china cabinet that I decided to paint and pair with the table. I used Lovilee’s Porcelain on the interior and Armour on the outside. This piece came out beautiful as well. Such a lovely set!!

Darling Daffodil!!

Thursday, April 2, 2015

I recently finished painting this adorable antique dresser in Lovilee ReDesign’s Darling Daffodil and I promised to show you how the paint colors look on furniture pieces, so I can’t wait to share these pics! This dresser is so pretty with it’s turned legs and trim work and I knew it would look amazing dressed up in one of our bolder colors. I choose Darling Daffodil because it’s the perfect warm, sunny shade of yellow and I guess I’ve been inspired by spring and the beautiful sunny weather we’ve been having here. I have pops of yellow sprinkled throughout the store right now and I’m loving this color at the moment….

Before painting this beauty, I decided to sand and re-stain the top in a dark walnut because I love how the dark walnut compliments the warm yellow. Here’s how she turned out…

I also had this pretty little mirror that I painted to match….

We also added this amazing farmhouse table to the floor and it’s just too pretty and awesome to not share….

 Just look at those amazing turned legs! The table top and bench tops are made of thick 2″ cedar boards that are just stunning….

Perfect for plenty of summertime family gatherings which are a must here in the South!! I hope you enjoyed sharing, till next time…

More Painted Pretties!!

Friday, March 20, 2015

Hey guys, sorry it’s been a little while since my last post, but that’s life as a business owner now….so much to do with so little time. I did manage to snap some pics to share with you guys though, so I’m pretty excited about it 😉 I hope you are too, so let’s get to the sharing…First up is a dining set I recently finished. I painted the table in Lovilee ReDesign’s Porcelain. The table originally came with four wicker back chairs that I also painted in Porcelain and recovered the seats in a blue patterned fabric. The table is large enough for six chairs with the leaf in place so I added two additional chairs to the ends of the table and painted them in Lovilee ReDesign’s Destin Harbor to add a pop of color that coordinates with the seat fabric of the other chairs. I saw the idea of adding a pop of color with dining chairs in a few magazines and I really loved the way it brightened up the rooms, so of course, I had to try it with this set! I love the idea that not all the chairs have to match and I love the overall look of this set….

I painted a French Provincial China Cabinet to match, using Destin Harbor on the exterior and Porcelain on the interior and hardware. I adore these china cabinets…the results are always so Gorgeous!

This set is going to look AMAZING in someone’s dining area 🙂

Next up is a Gorgeous Green Desk! I first started with the top, sanding and re-staining it. I wanted this desk to have some interest and dimension so I painted the first coat on the base of the desk in Lovilee ReDesign’s Oak Alley, which is the lighter of our two greens and then painted over that with Lovilee ReDesign’s Savannah Green.  I distressed it enough so that some of the lighter green was visible and also painted this awesomely interesting vintage chair I found in the Oak Alley. I recovered the chair seat in a fabric that has both of the green hues in it and it looks stunning next to the greens! This one came out so pretty and refreshing 🙂

Lastly, I’d like to share an antique chest that got an updated look in Lovilee ReDesign’s Macaroon Mint! This piece is definitely one of my favs!! I just love the style of the chest and with such a vibrant paint color, it’s taken to NEXT LEVEL indeed. For this piece, I painted a coat of Macaroon Mint and followed with a very subtle glaze. I finished it up with clear wax then dark around the edges. I went very easy on the dark wax because I didn’t want to cover too much of the mint color.

There are so many coordinating colors that would look amazing next to the mint, but I chose yellow as the color to style my piece with…. I could imagine this piece in a foyer or styled with pink for a little girl’s room. It would also be great as a changing table. This piece is very versatile and would look amazing wherever it ends up! Okay, talking about the possibilities really gets me excited, but that concludes the sharing for today’s post. I hope you’ve enjoyed it and can’t wait to share again later…take care.
