Who would have thought. . .

that a chair like this could be patio furniture?

This cute chair has already had one life as a patio chair in Florida--but after two years on a balcony, the rust was too much to bear. The restoration began and was finished today!

With it's bright green "Lilly-ish" print, the chair is ready to take on the Florida climate again!

The chair should arrive by noon tomorrow--going home to Sweet Home Wherever!

Black & white. . .

Relax. . .

in pink & green heaven!

Here we go. . .


This 4 drawer chest of drawers has a slight mid century modern feel with it's slanted feet. The chest has been painted an antique brown and dry brushed with black (of course!).

The chest is available at On The Square Antiques, Troy AL for $78.

A dress. . .

or four!
I have added four more infant/children dresses to my "Sweet Pease" line. All are hand-sewn from vintage linens--tablecloths or pillowcases. The dresses pictured feature pulled thread, embroidery, and hem stitching.

All are available at On The Square Antiques, TroyAL for $35.

all things. . .

fresh and re-purposed!

This weekend has been productive--a freshly painted chandelier, a chair re-covered, and a dressing table painted and refreshed!

The chandelier was stripped of all wiring and painted black--wonderfully chic--and for those less bold--a great Halloween accent! I can't wait to hang it in the shop!
All items are available at On The Square Antiques, Troy AL, chair, $32; chandelier, $18; dressing table, $110.

Changing directions. . .

How outdated is a wooden vallet?
This vallet has taken on a new, more glamorous life to become a jewelry keeper/display.

I painted the piece white, dry brushed it sage green, and distressed it for a time worn look. It is precious and a steal at $28. It is available at On The Square Antiques, Troy AL.

A bench a day. . .

keeps the worries away!

I found this precious bench last week--it had sad upholstery and was begging for a re-do!

Naturally, I painted (black, of course), distressed, and upholstered the bench in a crisp black and white toile. Adding a throw pillow finished the look.

The bench is available at On The Square Antiques, Troy AL for $62.

Yellow fever. . .

the latest addition!

This vintage dresser has been painted white, dry brushed with yellow and a glaze added. Oh, and it was also distressed. Now why did I use yellow? Maybe so that this piece would coordinate with the petite yellow table and the display at the shop would be perfect.

Regardless, this dresser is available at One The Square Antiques, Troy for $78.

Entirely different. . .

yellow, of all colors!

This petite dresser/nightstand/table is perfect for so many things!It has been painted yellow and distressed.

The dressing table chair has been re-upholstered in a yellow and gray (yes, I know it looks purple) graphic print. They make a perfect combination!

Both chair and table are available at On The Square Antiques, Troy AL for $32 for the table and $28 for the chair.

Serving Piece. . .

A Vintage Buffet
When I found this vintage buffet, it was structurally sound but badly in need of new paint--of course I chose black. In my classic style, it has been painted and distressed.
To me, a buffet is the perfect/classic piece of furniture every home needs.
This buffet is available at On The Square Antiques, Troy AL for $108.

Too cute for words. . .

This perfect version of a retro "ice cream parlor" set is the perfect size for a doll!
Even though I didn't paint or otherwise change this, I was compelled to include it here. I have this "need" to purchase doll furniture in addition to adult furniture and this was my "find" of the weekend!

It is available at On The Square Antiques and on eCrater.
