Refurbished art deco. . .

This wonderful 1940's waterfall style dresser was literally in pieces when I found it. (I really regret not taking a "before" photo!)

After reassembling the drawers, I sanded, painted and distressed. I was fortunate to find a simple round mirror at a Montgomery estate sale and this completed the set.

Available now at On The Square Antiques, Troy AL--it's a bargain at $78 (including the mirror!).

Our open house is November 20-22, Friday and Saturday 10-5 and Sunday 1-5 pm. Stop by and shop with us and sample our homemade goodies on Sunday! We are all great cooks!

Hit or miss. . .

a different direction!

I thought I would share this project with you. A customer's swing was in bad need of repair--the frame was perfect, however, the seats were falling apart. The solution: a slipcover for the swing.

The slipcover is actually two sections and they simply tie onto the swing. A small throw pillow adds a comfy accent.

Rolling along. . .

a wardrobe on wheels!

What more could you want--a portable closet--a wardrobe on wheels! This mini wardrobe is actually just a scaled down version of a typical antique wardrobe. It is cedar lined and has a rod for hanging coats. It has been painted black and distressed.

This portable closet would be perfect in a "mud room" or maybe a child's room to store baseball or other sports gear and uniforms. It is available at On The Square Antiques for only $42!

Cinderella table. . .

pulled from the trash with holes drilled into the top (and why may I ask?) the table has been transformed.

Changing into a precious chic shabby dressing table or even a foyer table

On display now at On The Square Antiques, Troy AL It is a steal at $38!

moving on. . .

a three piece set!
This wonderful furniture has already moved on to a
permanent home. The furniture was painted a sage green
then dry brushed with a creamy white. The set probably dates from the 1940's.

Goldilocks. . .

and one special bear!

Introducing a new "Sweet Peas" Bear--this one sewn from vintage linens--scraps of vintage tablecloths, dresser scarves, and bits and pieces of lace.

Shown relaxing in a pretty pink rocker, the bear and rocker are available at On The Square Antiques, Troy AL for $50 and $22 respectively.

the new black. . .

isn't totally black!
Why would I want anything to be "normal"? This wonderful desk/sideboard was salvaged from (literally) the trash pile! Mostly cherry red, but with 2 solid white drawers, the desk became mine.
I dry brushed it with black leaving red peaking through. It would be perfect for a television stand or sideboard. At $68 it's a steal!
