1950's Dining Set Makeover

This dining set was bought by my parents in the 60's and given to me about 15 years ago. I have always disliked the dark brown but didn't know what to do with it until I discovered chalk paint.

Vintage Cedar Chest

I was given this ugly duckling when my aunt and uncle were downsizing. It was built for them around 1950. I've never seen one like it, with the drawer on the bottom. After months of staring at it I decided to do something with it. It was taking up valuable space in my small studio. Not that's it's done, I'm not sure I can part with it. It is one of the prettiest pieces I have ever done. I hope you like it.

Stacking Tables

Stacking tables from plain and boring to cute and sweet. Bought these for cheap and I knew what I wanted to do to them. Sold them as soon as I posted them.
