A Mini Tour of Our Space in Fredericksburg, Virginia

Our space is finally filling back up after nearly a month of semi-neglect as we prepared and purged for Lucketts.  We ended up selling almost everything at the show, so we've been really busy buying and getting things ready to take to the shop.  

I've also been studying on how to shoot my camera in manual mode, and I'm getting there.  The lighting in our space is not great, and it's a challenge for me with settings....but I will prevail!

Until then, here are a few pictures that I took today.  It will look even more full tomorrow as I'll be taking a dresser and some fluffing stuff in.

I love how this cedar chest turned out!  I'll have a post on the transformation tomorrow.  I used Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint in Artissimo....a new favorite color!

 Another piece I just completed is this walnut side table.  It was refinished in an awful orange color, so I had no problems with painting it.  I used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Versailles and finished it off with clear wax.

We are working on some exciting things that I can't wait to share!  Not the time just yet...but coming soon!

'til next time!

A Lady's Desk Makeover

I sold this sweet desk at Lucketts and realized that I never wrote a post on it.  This was another "trash to treasure"makeover.

I started with it looking like this.  I have seen so many of these faux painted pieces lately...the ones with the layers of paint in an attempt to make it look like wood...or something.

I chose Annie Sloan chalk paint in Versailles.  I love this soft green shade!

The inside was already painted red.  I just freshened it up with a coat of Real Milk Paint in Red and waxed.

I painted the knobs to match, but if I had to do it over again - I think I would have used stained wood ones, instead.

Much better!

I'm finally getting back to working on pieces for the shop.  It's so empty!  I have a load going tomorrow morning and more coming this weekend.

'til next time!
