Newest Poppy

Hello friends, a new poppy just got posted on Etsy. This one really does not lack in fun. The color is green with golden yellow undertones and just right amount of distressing offers depth and that vintage charm. Hope you like!

S's Desk and Chair - before and after

My new client S had this little old table and rickety chair that needed some love. A bit of glue and several coats of paint have transformed these two old, tired looking pieces into something lovely that S will enjoy for a long time to come. The knobs were picked by S herself and they could not be a better match.

Small table - before and after

When in doubt, I paint things turquoise. One can never go wrong with that color.
I sourced this cutie a few days ago, had some leftover paint and some spare time and here is the finished product.
Now off to take photos of finished goodies from a few days ago. Cheers!

Work in progress

Sneak preview

Here is quick little shot of a piece that I have been working on for what seems to be an eternity.
I still need to finish and attach the doors and add glass panels, and that's about it, but this is what she looks like now.

C's dresser - before and after

Here is the dresser I just finished for my sweet client C. She was originally interested in a different piece, but by the time she was ready to purchase it had already found it's new home. It didn't take long for me to find a suitable replacement and together with C's input this is what I came up with.
