This little vanity is one of my favorite pieces that I have done! I love it so much I'm already looking for another vanity that I can transform in a finish similar to this one.  It's the stripes and the flowers together! 

I painted it in a mix of paints and colors....

This cabinet got a major transformation! 

Here is a before photo:

You can see the top has a laminate top.  It was very, very shiny and glossy. It needed a lot of scuff sanding first in order to get rid of that gloss and shine!  If you have furniture like that you need to...

This dresser was transformed using the napkin method.  I really love how it turned out. Very easy to do with napkins and mod podge.  You want to make sure you take off all the extra layers of napkin. Most napkins are 3 ply so take those extra layers off. You only want...

This was a major makeover for this set!  

The furniture from the 60's was often made with resin.  I have painted many pieces made of that resin material (pla...

I was asked if I had a dresser that was a specific size that a designer wanted to put in her client's nursery to use as a changing table. I didn't have one in my inventory but I did find one that was the exact size they wanted! After color discussions and doing some sa...

The detail on these old dressers from the 70's is so amazing! They are not exactly pretty in their original wood look but once painted, stunning! That's why I love these pieces. They are not solid wood though so be prepared for that. You have to make sure you really pr...

I had planned on painting this dresser a dark gray but changed my mind as I wanted to use up my AS Olive paint first. I ended up putting a black glaze on this. I thought the copper metallic paint would look really sharp against the black and green so I painted all the...

This buffet has been one of my favorite pieces to work on. I would consider it traditional, with a twist:) 

The top was badly marked with water rings so it needed to be sanded down to raw wood. I almost always put on a wood conditioner when I sand down. You can buy the ...

Glazing is very stressful but so worth the stress as it produces such a unique look.

Double glazing is what I call it when I use 2 different types of glazing on a project. This adds great depth and character to your pieces. I use a dark stain first, like a java brown, a...

This hutch was a custom job - meaning it was brought to me by clients in order for me to paint. 

I'm guessing this is from the 60's or early 70's. It is made of resin. A lot of the furniture back then was made of resin. Very ugly in color but fantastic lines and curves...
