A Little Paint.....

A little paint goes a long way. I just finished a project for a client of mine. She and her husband just bought a new home and wanted new/old furniture for it. I painted a gorgeous table to match a short french hutch she purchased here. It turned out fabulous! Take a look. I wish them many wonderful memories around that table and many blessings for them.

New Finds

I am so excited that I found some really cool things while I was out hunting at local estate/garage sales today. Even through the weather was still too chilly for most, I was up early ready to front the cold.

Two of my favorite finds of the day were a antique typewriter and old worn Common Prayer Books. Wheee for me!

I immediately displayed them in the store today. Take a look.

Time for Pink!

Since Valentines is fast approaching we are adding different shades of pink. Our window is sporting a shabby Queen Anne style vanity. Isn't it cute?

Just a few of my favorite things in our store right now is an awesome Edwardian style buffet with mirror. Another one of my favorites is the white shabby pier mirror and a french hutch painted in our signature black color.

New Year New Look

It's a New Year and time for a fresh look. I have been working non-stop looking, finding, fixing, upholstering, painting and putting it all together in our store. We have many new furniture pieces coming in the door weekly and lots of old ones leaving. It looks like a fairy came in our store and re-did it all. Please stop by if you get a chance. These awesome items are going fast.
