Last Poppy of 2013

And with this piece I say goodbye to 2013 with the new photo shoot scheduled for tomorrow (January 1). I am particularly excited about the piece to be featured next as it is a first for me of it's kind. Hope to have a reveal ready by the end of the week. Until then, stay safe, happy and healthy.

Milk Paint - Mustard Yellow Tallboy Dresser

This beautiful dresser painted in mustard yellow milk paint did not wait long to find it's way to a new home. The shape, the colour and the mix and match of old and new hardware made it a winning combination. Fun fact about milk paint is that once the piece is painted the paint itself does all the distressing. My input in achieving this aged look was minimal. I only removed the paint flakes that were forming by themselves in spots where paint did not "want" to adhere to the surface.
I have a few other milk paint projects on the go that I hope to be able to reveal early in the new year.

Two New Pieces and a Sneak Preview

 Both of these pieces were finished in early December, but with all the pre-Holiday activities i did not get the chance to post them. Here they are now, fresh and ready to find a new home.

And for the sneak preview portion of this post I am sharing the following…
expect to see full on beauty shots of this little gem by Monday.
