Transformation. . .

for the love of. . .

another bench!
Just what I need--another bench! I can't seem to ignore a bench (or footstool for that matter) that is in need of a re-do! This was a really sad vanity bench that was literally falling apart--a little glue, some time, black paint of course and wonderful fabric and we're done!
This is the perfect black vanity bench that has been distressed and covered in a black, cream, & white paisley fabric--it is perfect!
Available at and at On The Square Antiques, Troy AL for $32

Art Deco meets Pretty in Pink. . .

This funky pink vanity was originally a 1940's "waterfall" style vanity, complete with glass shelf. The vanity has evidenty seen many owners--some of which adored pink! I have merely scraped away the worn white coat to expose the multiple pink layers--thus "Pretty Pink" is born!

The vanity is available at and at On The Square Antiques, Troy AL.

The perfect table. . .

is disguised in an antique trunk!

Dream on. . .

the perfect chair!
Unfortunately, this chair isn't for sale--it's a "re-do" for my daughter and it will be delivered Saturday. I wonder if she will see it here first?

A tisket . . . a tasket. . .

a pink and purple basket. . .

Rescued . . .

This wonderful sharecropper's pie safe was once dry-brushed a hideous yellow--why would anyone obviously choose that color? White to the rescue! The pie safe is now clean and bright with 2 coats of clean white paint--ready for wire screen, glass or cute fabric on the doors.

The pie safe is available at On The Square Antiques, Troy AL for $250.
