I'm happy to finally 2 years, 
share with you our beautiful
white storage cabinet that sits

in Pure white.

THE LITTLE UNWANTED DESK - white paint and fabulous hardware

This little desk made it into
a pile of furniture I had given

then advertised as a give away on
my Facebook page. But there
were no takers.

STENCILLED SIGNS - ideas, colors, and textures

This first cabinet door was painted with ASCP Coco

SPRING FLING II - annie sloan florence chalk paint

Once upon a time I painted a dresser
light turquoise, white, & green,
and named it the SPRING FLING
dresser. The color combination was
extremely popular and I was challenged
to recreate another dresser with a
complimentary look.

SALVAGE YARDS - inspiration

It's time to look up your local salvage yards
and think about taking a stroll one weekend
afternoon and see what you can find. Maybe
a load of bricks for a garden walkway, a
vintage washing machine to plant some
flowers in, a fancy architectural window for
that blank wall space in the living room, or
maybe you will fall in love with an antique
lighting pieces and a whole room makeover
might start.
