Is this neutral color a yellow-beige or a brownish-grey or a grey-sage? It’s really hard to say as it all depends on the colors around it. It can go with just about anything!

Table Redo Part 2

Share the joy

I’ve conquered this table…it is mine!!


I finally am able to paint the table and chose Duck Egg Blue by Annie Sloan. The paint is still wet but couldn’t wait to get pics of it. I love this color and felt this piece called out for it. It looks so adorable. I hope you agree. Still need to finish wax, distress a bit. Sooo much better than mauve.

4 Drawer Dresser Almost Done

Share the joy

Well, I added a clear wax finish on this piece yesterday, added some distressing, and little dabs of dark wax here and there. I just need to add the new back on the dresser, the old one was pretty beat up and it will be complete.

Again, I have to say the wood top on this dresser came out so beautiful. Its a deep walnut yet you can see the grain of the wood.

4 Drawer Dresser Prep

Share the joy

4-drawer-dresser-unfinished-2 (Medium)My new project is this 4 drawer dresser.

Some work I am doing to this piece is I removed the old backing to install a new fresh wood back. I also sanded the top. I was going to paint it but will go with the dark walnut stain on the top. Aside from that the dresser is a strong solid piece of furniture for sure.

I am painting probably by end of week…I’ll keep ya posted!


I’m back and going strong!

I’ve been fighting a nasty cold for quite a while but feeling better, thank goodness. Time to pick myself up and get back to work

100_1136 (Medium)I recently finished an end table using Annie Sloans Old White paint and have some pics for you. This table has a real French Country style with a lot of details, brought to life with some dark wax and distressing. You can really see the details now, more so then before when it was just stained.

I hope you like it as much as I do
