White on White. . .

Perfectly white now but this chair was once yellow with a cane back that had issues. I white-washed the chair,covered the seat in a natural duck canvas, and made a slip cover for the damaged back. Available at Troy Antiques for $38.

Cute and sassy

Dressing table with swing away arms has an attached green and pink skirt. The coordinating stool has a crazy quilt patchwork top.

Both are available at Troy Antiques; dressing table, $48; stool, $28.

Cottage chic. . .

Beautiful antiqued dresser

This two drawer dresser base has been antiqued a wonderful shade of white. The mirror that is shown with it has a pale blue edge and complements the dresser. Both are available at Troy Antiques; dresser, $85; mirror, $32.

It had to happen. . .

I just couldn't stand it any longer. . .

the china cabinet that I had purchased and used for display at the antique shop needed a new paint job! So. . .I painted it black--black interior and exterior--but that just didn't work--too depressing I think. Out came the gray paint (something I swore I'd never use again) and I painted the exterior gray--it is perfect! Of shall I say it is perfect after I distressed the piece a bit--everything needs a little "scuffs".

The china cabinet is a classic 1940's style with 3 shelves and a glass door. The lower door open to revel extra storage for linens or other china. Available at Troy Antiques for $128; delivery is available to some locations.

Georgia Bulldog

Vintage concrete Georgia Bulldog--what a find!

He was missing an ear when I found him, but a little repair job made him almost as good as new. In spite of the fact the shop is located in Alabama, deep in Auburn (and University of Alabama) territory, the Bulldog was quickly snapped up and carried off to Atlanta. He now graces the garden somewhere in UGA territory!

Check back with me again--you never can tell what I might find and I'm always searching for vintage garden items!

Summer cuteness

Crisp and white. . .perfect for summer. . .

This cute bistro table and chair set has been painted white and slightly distressed, giving it a worn, comfy look. Red patchwork cushions were added to the seats.

The set was sold today and

goes home with a sweet couple. We all hope they enjoy the set.


actually not. . .

just one table, painted and distressed, and a cute stool that has a wonderful crackle finish.

The stool is white with a hint of blue peaking through--too cute! Both are available at Troy Antiques: table, $38 and stool $22.

Gone. . .

but not forgotten. . .

I suppose I'm too slow with my blogging. . .I finished this chair and it was purchased immediately at the shop (Troy Antiques). Originally, the chair was an ugly metallic green (yes, green) and I sanded it a bit then painted it white and distressed it for a softer look.

Keep checking back on the blog. . hopefully there will be more like this soon.
