Two more newbies

The weather was so bad for the past week or so, and maybe for the better as I could give my undivided attention to my recent finds. And here they are, smokey lavender dresser with yellow knobs and sunny yellow table that made my days a whole lot brighter. Both are available in my Etsy shop.

New dining room sideboard

Hey friends, on one of my recent shopping trips I noticed this piece, no paint and bad hardware. I decided to take it home and give it a makeover and here is what I came up with. New rose knobs and the custom blue paint give it a fresh look, just in time for spring. You can find more info on the piece in my Etsy shop.

Turquoise dining room hutch

Here is another thing that kept me busy over the past few days. It just looks like it should be in the kitchen or a dining room, but wouldn't it make a wonderful addition to a beautiful bathroom or a laundry room? Why not use it to store your books or turn it into an office storage. You get the picture, possibilities are endless.

Custom orders before and afters

I have been busy this past week refinishing two pieces for my sweet clients.
First up is a little side table that called for a fresh coat of white paint that instantly turned it into a show stopper. This piece was a client's gift to her daughter who is away in school. I love how the white made it look feminine and showcases its delicate lines.
The teal night stand belongs to a fashion forward young woman that wanted a statement piece for her otherwise black and white apartment. This little cabinet is all glam on the outside with a touch of glitz coming from within.

My latest Etsy purchase

I was browsing some Etsy storefronts last night and came across this wonderful little print by a local Toronto artist. It was a no brainer that I had to have it. So now I am waiting for it to arrive in mail so I can frame it and hang in a special place in my house.
Pay's work can be seen in her Etsy store
