Did Someone Say "Bombe"?

My DD tagged me on a FB bombé chest ad. So we drove out to take a look. As I was looking at it, the lady took $10 off just because she was happy I showed up - it's common for people to make appointments to buy furniture off Craig's List or Facebook and not to keep them. BTDT!

You can turn anything into a work of art with a little vision and know how. This one was a Christmas gift for my daughter - she'd told me the day I got it at a thrift shop that she was putting her name on it.

Adirondack Chairs Cloned for Christmas

An MCM Roadside Rescue by the DH

DH (Darling Hubby) brought home a side of the road freebie last summer. 14 months ago I cleaned and sanded it. A few months ago I primed it. I just got around to painting it. I'll start with the "after" since the "before" was pretty awful.

I saw a really cool table at an estate auction a while ago and won the bid. After I refinished it, all of a sudden I saw parlor tables everywhere – antique stores, estate sales, online…Today I introduce you to Hannah, named after the man who owned the store that made her – Hannah's Furniture in Kenosha, Wisconsin. She had a tag on her underside.

Create a Sweet Bedroom Suite - Pure & Original Paint

My daughter and son-in-law bought their first house - money is tight. What do you do when you want the best but only have "old and outdated"? You redesign with paint and your own artistic vision. It's easier than most think.

Meemaw's Jewelry Armoire Got Pretty

I've had my mom's jewelry armoire since she passed nearly 3 years ago in my walk-in closet, holding all of my essential oils and all the accessories. Yes, I have that many. What can I say. I love my oils!It needed a change and I wanted to play with some of the many options we have these days for updating our furniture. So out came the Old Fashioned Milk Paint and an IOD Transfer.
