::Catching Up with 3 Before & Afters::

PSSSST...I'm no longer blogging here!
You can now find me at
-------------------------------------------------------------------

Last week I got so ding dang busy finishing pieces I had nothing left when it came time to blog.
So tonight, you'll get a smattering of some of the before and afters I've done in the last 10 days or so.
Boom.

#1 Glenda the Good Witch Dresser
(Hubs said I shoulda named her Elphaba 'cause she's green)


Before:


Went to the ReStore to get some tacky brass oval back plates because I ruined the original hardware.
Don't ask.
Knobs from Lowes.
After I shook my puny fist at Hob Lob for selling out of the vintage-look green ceramic knobs I'd picked out especially for this color. 



#2 Page the Plate Rack


Found at a resale shop.


Knew she'd be pretty in ASCP's Duck Egg.  
I was right.



#3 Janice (sister to Janie)


I had a customer buy Janie, and wanted me to paint her vintage bed to match.
Here's where Janice started....3 coats of peeling, glossy paint.  
She killed my mouse sander.
I'm sure she felt bad about it.


Used the same colors and techniques as I did with Janie.
For the raised decorative thingy, I used an artists brush with the white paint I used for the 4 corner posters to highlight them a bit.


See?  A matching set :)


Ta Da!  I've got a few more too, but they'll have to wait for another day.
I have some really exciting news regarding my baby business that I'll share later this week!  
Things are really taking off, much quicker than I expected, and way more rewarding that I anticipated :)

I love living vicariously through you.

I'm not much of a shabby chic girl, but that BED...oh swoon.

Love that bed but I am dying over the plate rack! If I just lived closer I would take that baby right off your hands!!

Love that green! I know exactly the knobs you wanted - our store is out of them too! The bed is deliciously distressed.
