I’m On Fire This Week…

And I don’t just mean the temperature (although it is 96 degrees) I’m cranking out projects like someone lit a fire under my tail…

I finished up the custom order for Michelle’s daughter…

The client had chosen a chest that was in my “to be redesigned” album on facebook and she wanted the turquoise color that I had used on some other pieces. She also wanted me to paint a sleigh bed that she already owned. It was a very nice piece of furniture but her daughter was bored with the traditional look of it, so we decided to update it with a black paint job. (I got so excited to start working on it that I forgot to take the before picture before sanding)

When they came to drop of the bed her daughter noticed this cute vanity and decided that she wanted it in black also…

knowing the pre-teens style, I decided to surprise her with a little more turquoise… which gave this little vanity a funky personality…just like hers.

I really like the way it turned out… It’s really fun to work with kids that have good style…

I also have this project in the works…

I fell in love with the Heidi Grace Birdcage Fabric

and I just had to use it on something…

so this little mid century chest will be getting a makeover…just a teaser…check back to see the progress.

Have a productive week…

Also, here are some new goodies…

I call this style…Old Hollywood Glam Revival. It’s 2011 Glammy. (yes, I watch the show Jerseylicious)

The chairs are carved Spanish -Old World style. I have 1 arm chair and 4 side chairs. They are covered in burlap and have a dry brush chippy paint that I chose to keep.
