What a Little Paint Can Do....

It's truly amazing what paint can do.  We had this great 1980ish Thomasville bookcase in our space at Unique Antiques in it's raw form.  I was asked at the onset of taking this booth to not bring in painted furniture (other than old original painted), so I decided this would be a good candidate while serving as a much needed display piece. However, there it sat for months unsold. When we moved out a couple of weeks ago, there was no way that I would take it to our space at Through The Garden Gate Antiques unpainted.


So, the only decision I had was what color(s) to paint it.  No question, white is what sells at TTGG, but I really like to create things a little more interesting and give my pieces a bit of personality.  Wanting to keep this piece clean while showing off the great lines and cottage details, I went with an antique white with a khaki backboard and trim. 


What a transformation!!

Now it has a sweet cottage look and perfect for displaying so many things.  I think even the most die-hard painted furniture critics would have to agree with this one...

You can see a bit of another of my favorite new pieces in the "after" picture above....this repurposed frame with words to live by!


With that, 'til next time!
