::Antique Wash Stand and Dry Sink::


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

Peeps.

I'm so behind in showing you all my before and afters.  

Here's two of my recent faves.  First is Daisy the dry sink:


Daisy before:



I used DIY chalky paint with calcium carb in a Sherwin Williams 'Watery' Color-to-Go sample.


I used her original hardware, using some Brasso to shine them up.


I'm having a hard time parting with her.  May need to keep her as a bedside table in the new house. :)

Next up is Annie, from 1850....so says the English ironstone pitcher and basin:


Here's her original incarnation:


She was treated to American Paint Company's 'Blue Jeans', then 'Home Plate'.  I used a baby wipe to rub back the white to reveal the blue, which compliments the ironstone so well!



I have several others to show you too, but that's it for now!
I have another market coming up as well as some more custom orders to do this week, and 3 SUPER big announcements to tell you about!  My life is crazy full with awesomeness right now :)

Hope everyone enjoys their Labor Day festivities tomorrow.
Me?  I"m heading down to a family picnic then VIP tickets to see
MUMFORD & SONS!


(compliments of my brother who is their booking agent....that's him being kissed by Winston)

1. I must have a dry sink now. It's non-negotiable.

2. I used to love Mumford & Sons before the radio played them all day, every day. When we were trying to get rid of our raccoons, we had the radios blasting 24-7. It was the running joke that there must only be four artists that stations are allowed to play: Taylor Swift, Pink, Justin Timberlake and M & S. I wanted to shoot myself in the head. Also the unnecessary bad language (even though it's edited)(but not on my Pandora-yikes!)totally bums me out because I'm not in 7th grade. BUT. I bet they are amazing live!!

You are so clever at furniture make-overs. I love how you name them too! Both are adorable - how could you ever part with them!? :-)
