1950's CURVED GLASS CABINET - chartreuse paint



With every internet search I could think of and all my years
of loving vintage furniture I have never come across such a
unique piece as this one. And to think it has made it through
the years without either curved glass panel in the doors
getting broken or even showing a chip. To helped this cabinet
stand out from the rest I pick an extra special color.

VINTAGE KEY HANGERS - combining wood with white



I find something very appealing about natural
worn wood working next to a fresh white
palette. The old pieces of wood I use for
projects like this are from vintage furniture
that have gone past the point of saving in
there original form. The wood used behind
this painted tree & house key hanger was
the side of a deep filing drawer in a turn of
the century desk almost a half inch thick.

FIXING SPLIT WOOD PANEL - white dresser with india knobs



I felt compelled to save this dresser
when I came across it at a yard sale.
The lady who owned it had bought it
to refinish and was told the split side
panel was an easy fix. Once she got it
home she realized this was NOT A
SIMPLE FIX.


The two panels had to be leveled and lined up, glue
 applied, and clamped together.

Inside I used a couple of broken metal hinges to stabilize the
 fix. The hinges are not the solution to holding the
 panels together, but they will hold everything in place while
 the glue sets.


Once everything was fixed she got painted in a creamy white
 ASCP, and new India bone knobs added. I found the six of 
them at my local HomeSense. The plates you see behind the
 knobs are antique metal pieces also painted in the same
 creamy white ASCP then wet distressed.


Everything was lightly edged distressed and the three 
drawers were lined with a floral black and white wallpaper.
