Before and After

Sorry I have become such a bad blogger since we opened the store.
NEVER in my wildest dreams would I have thought 
that I would have more projects to post than
time to post them.  I am still in awe of only a short year ago I
was only worried about getting a piece done to post about them.
Now we have so many pieces done and sold that we are lucky
if we get to snap a picture before its gone.  
GOD is truly amazing.  I remember 
praying "only if we could have a small space to sell our projects".
The Lord abundantly blessed us with our own store. WOW!!

I got this antique sewing notions cabinet out of an old barn.
It needed a makeover.

I painted it in Annie Sloan old white.
I painted the drawers in grey that i 
made into a DIY chalk paint.  
I also used some yellow DIY chalk paint on the knobs.
I took this up to Absolute Vintage Boutique and it sold in a few days.
It was such a unique piece, I almost wanted to keep it!

I distressed and waxed with annie sloan clear wax.

  2. I loved this! You're featured in my furniture redo roundup! So pretty! I really like the colors of paint together.

  3. This is beyond gorgeous! You really gave this old sewing cabinet a new life! It's gorgeous!!!

  4. How wonderful that things have worked out better even than you imagined! It's not surprising with pieces as cute as that sewing stand. ~ Maureen
