Every Girl Needs One!!!


Working on this GORGEOUS vintage vanity!!! (Please ignore the Lilo and Stitch stickers)


It's OLD and in EXCELLENT condition! The mirror is in PERFECT, too! The best part is, it doesn't even need hardware.  Check out her curves!

Hubby already sanded it, after this photo was taken, and the wood is BEAUTIFUL! Smooth as a baby's bottom!  Now for primer and paint. I'm thinking AQUA?!?!? What do you think?

Refurbished Estate Sale Find

I really can't take much credit for this one!  Hubby spotted it at a FAB estate sale!

You know, the kind where everything is in the front yard, in boxes, stacked and stacked?  It's all a little dusty, maybe even junky, but GOOD JUNKY!  Nothing has a price on it, so you start piling stuff up by the "cashier" and negotiate when you're finished rummaging.

I found 3 blue mason jars, one with the zinc lid, a milk glass vase, and some UNREAL vintage daisy curtains.  Hubby found this!

It was painted THICK, CRUSTY, off-white paint.  Even the hardware!  Nothing was broken or missing, but it was a little wobbly.  So, we made our offer to the "cashier" and brought it home.

Hubby reinforced the back a little by adding a few new boards to the existing ones.  Then, he sanded, stripped the hardware, primed, and painted this beauty!  I WILL take credit for the paint color.  I originally wanted a green, but couldn't find one I liked, so it ended up this rich beautiful aqua. 

We know it's about 100 years old because of the square-headed nails we found holding in a piece of screen under the bottom drawer.  Why?  I don't know.  If you do, please tell me!

Chalkboard, Anyone?

I have amassed a HUGE collection of gorgeous, HUGE vintage frames with no glass.  So, what's a girl to do?

Make chalkboards, of course!

The supplies have been purchased, Dad's jigsaw has been borrowed, can you guess what I'm doing this weekend?

If you are in need of a unique chalkboard, please contact me.  A few layers of magnetic paint are applied before the chalkboard paint, so you will be able to post photos, invites, and special items on your board.

These are perfect for weddings, graduation or anniversary parties, and of course, everyday memos!

See that {gorgeous} gold chair in the background?  That's my next project!!!

My New Love!!!

I found this stunning 20" porthole mirror in a local thrift store.  It was in fabulous condition, except for the peeling gold painted resin.  So, I primed it and painted it a beautiful aqua!  To learn more, or to purchase, please visit my etsy shop.
