Good afternoon! I have a sturdy little side table to share with you today. It's vintage French Provincial and very shabby-chic! I found this pretty thing on craigslist about two years ago (I went through a 'stocking up' phase with furniture and had many pieces that sat for a long time!). I finally painted her up last week, added pretty glass knobs and paper lining in the drawer. Here she is (before pictures at the bottom):

This piece is something a bit different for me. I tried my hand at wallpapering a little vintage side cabinet. I used some pretty black and white damask patterned wallpaper on the top and the door. I also added some 'bun' style feet to update it a little more. It was a bit tricky but I think it worked out pretty well for a first try :)
I found this little desk several months back for the bargain price of $12.99. Thank you Value Village - sometimes you still know how to price like a thrift store! At first I planned on refinishing this one for sale...and painting it black. But after starting my move-biz-from-dining-room-down-to-suite shuffle I realized that it would be a great piece to replace the beast of a desk (5 feet by almost 3 feet!) we've been using in our family room.
I still think the desk would look fantastic black, but white was more of the look I was going for in the front room/study I am decorating. I am still having second thoughts though!
All these furniture moves have freed up a lot of space in our family room, which will allow me to move a cabinet and make room for book shelves in the study, etc! There will be pictures eventually once the room is finished.
Happy Halloween everybody! I hope you had a fun night with the kiddies either trick-or-treating or handing out candy. As per our tradition, we sat on our rocking chairs on the porch (with our drinky drinks!) handing out candy. We got a lot of kids this year and it was fun seeing all the adorable wee ones dressed up ;)
So this set was a fun set to paint! I tried out my newest ASCP colour 'Napoleonic Blue' and love it! It's such a rich masculine colour. The dresser was previously painted brown and I thought it would be the perfect colour to show through the distressing. I picked up some fairly hefty knobs (hefty in price too!) for these two pieces. I think they were worth the money as the colour of the pieces required some strong looking knobs.
Here they are ('before' pictures are at the end of each):

This cottagy dresser was one of the pieces I reclaimed from our furnished suite once our tenant moved out. It was hard to put it into the suite when we first purchased it but alas, I have it now! I've painted it in one of my favorite colours Duck Egg Blue ASCP over Pure White. I painted a beautiful wardrobe that Matt and I purchased for our entry way (100 year old house = no closets!) exactly the same and I LOVE it. I'll show you pictures one day.
