Moving on. . .

My furniture is always "on the move"--either to new
apartments, new houses, college dorms/apartments.

This chest of drawers is moving to Tuscaloosa--The Unversity of Alabama!

The chest of drawers has been painted and distressed.
Anthropologie style fabric drawer pulls were added for interest.

The ornate wrought iron rocker is a weekend "find"--too cute not to included in the photo. The rocker is available at On The Square Antiques, Troy AL for $72.

Pillowcases. . .

aren't just for little girls.

This precious little daygown is a custom order for a newborn baby! Constructed from a vintage pillowcase, vintage buttons and lace add detail.

Other daygowns and pillowcase dress for little girls are available at On The Square Antiques, Troy AL

Why not. . .

paint it differently?

Even in a small city there are some people that crave "the unusual"--I supposed you could say I am one of those people. Why would you want to strip and stain every piece of furniture when there is paint in every color? Of course I use an inordinate amount of black and white paint but I do love color!
This small table had to lose its top layer of veneer due to water damage--I just added a dry-brushed coat of black paint and antiquing glaze to the top and it was ready to go!

Table is available for sale at On The Square Antiques, Troy AL and at Miss Hetties for $24.

Too far out. . .

in left field?

I just couldn't resist change--for the better I hope!

Anthropologie always has the most interesting furniture--I love all of their pieces and their store designs! Today I borrowed one of their ideas--different drawer pulls.

This vintage dresser has been painted black, distressed and accented with multiple styles of drawer pulls--all vintage! This piece can do double duty as a dresser/small chest in the bedroom, a buffet in the dining room, or a beautiful accent table in the foyer. It is available at On The Square Antiques, Troy, AL for $98.
