New Loot and Adventures With Annie Sloan Paint

There is so much cool stuff in the works that I just can’t wait to tell…but I have to.

Here are some things I can share…

Isn’t the color fabulous? It’s Annie Sloan Duck Egg Blue

I started working with Annie Sloan Chalk Paints a few weeks ago and I really love it.

This is what I started with and I have re-ordered twice since. The colors are great and the texture and finish is amazing. I am so happy that I tried this product because it really solved a lot of problems I had with standard latex paints.

I really have two main styles that I focus on and those are mid-century and french styles. I am not a purist or traditionalist in either style. I am constantly stepping out of the box with color choices and redesign techniques.

I wanted this piece to be kind of risque or sex in the city-ish. Traditional and avant garde colliding. I envision it in a dining room with heavy, silk damask drapes and sexy low lighting.

The next piece is a Heywood Wakefield ReDesign…

painted in Annie Sloan Graphite and finished with clear wax, I was able to buff the finish to a super smooth hard finish.

I doubt that I’m the only one that has used this paint for modern pieces, but I will say that it is well suited for it since the paint is fast drying and  you have the ability to buff the wax to a super hard finish.

I am working on a Bernhardt Sideboard, Gun Case, French Arm Chair and Dresser this week. Along with all the other new changes in the works…its going to be a busy week.

Good Luck Junkin’

New Loot at the Tavares Antique Mall

I have so much to share with y’all about the road trip, the new warehouse and the other new changes that are on the horizon, but for now I’m just going to give you a quick update and a preview of new loot. I have been crazy busy trying to get everything moved into the new warehouse and its starting to really take shape, but my booths at the Tavares Antique Mall were starting to look bare after selling some of my BIG furniture pieces. I finally found some time to refresh with some new stuff.

I will share more in the next few days…

New Loot! French Market Style

I have spent the last couple days changing out my “girly” booth to reflect more of the French Market Style that I love.  As some of you might already know, I have multiple design personalities and they frequently fight with each other. Sometimes I try to mix them all together and it works, other times it drives me nuts. Currently, I have my “guy” booth and my “girly” booth.

This is my “French Market Style” booth. This style might be confused with Shabby Chic, but it’s a bit more rustic in it’s color palette. It’s more burlap than lace and a little less delicate.

My ReDesigned

“Juliette” bed turned out amazing. She is perfectly imperfect.

So that is a glimpse at my girly side and here is the other side…

Rustic ranch with warm tones, bright colors and funky cowboy junk.

That’s me…eclectic to the max.

Y’all have a great weekend and good luck junkin’
