Vintage Chifferobe Project


I just finished my latest project, a vintage wood chifferobe.  I painted it antique coral and then brushed on antiquing stain, wiping it off right away.  I distressed the edges, then added the vintage wallpaper to side panels and lower front panel.  Newest addition to my vintage rental business.

Venturing into Vintage Rental


On a small scale, I'm planning to venture into the vintage rental business in the upcoming year.  I have so many pieces that I love, cannot use in my smaller home, but I cannot bring myself to sell. Why not offer them for rent for events or photography shoots?  My first step is to inventory my pieces and get some marketing photos scheduled.  

Fresh Flower Arrangement


I found an old drawer and some very old glass bottles - you know the kind, they have calcifications and rust spots inside that you just cannot wash out.  I painted both the bottles and drawer with parchment white craft paint that is okay to use on glass. It covered up the stains well.  I distressed the bottles and placed them inside the drawer.  I formed the fresh flower arrangment around them, tucking peonies, roses, mint sprigs in. Then I put long spikes of wild indigo in each bottle.

Vintage Vanity Redo


I wish I had remembered to take a BEFORE picture of this vanity..but here is the end result. Painted with chalk paint in an ice blue color, trimmed in white.

Furniture Flip - FARMERS MARKET side table


A wood side table with a wicker panel in the lower shelf was given a new look with Martha Stewart Vintage Decor paint in "Antique Sky."  From the paint name, you would expect it to be blue, but it is a aqua green shade.  Vintage ephemera is decoupaged to the top in a scattered manner, along with a Farmers Market ad image, and the top is sealed with clear polycrylic.   Annie Sloan clear wax was applied to the rest of the table.

Old Military Trunk Coffee Table


I found this old military trunk while out picking.  Bun feet were bolted to the bottom, and it is painted with Martha Stewart's Vintage Decor Paint in Charcoal, although on this piece it is a steel gray color.  I distressed it and then waxed it.  Love how it turned out.  I left the wonderful original paper inside intact.

Reclaimed Dresser Drawer Wedding Card Holder


I found this old dresser drawer, added reclaimed legs from an old table that was made into a coffee table, metal drawer pulls and pretty papers for lining. Makes a unique wedding card holder for a vintage style wedding, don't you think?

A Teacup Chandelier


My version of a teacup chandelier upcycle....I found some old teacups, spray painted a chandelier light fixture to match them, and bonded the teacups to each section with E6000 glue (wonderful stuff!).  Here it is shown with fresh flowers in each cup, but it could also be used to hold tealights and hung in the garden to enjoy at dusk.

An Altered Suitcase, Sweet Violets


I just finished this suitcase, painted Duck Egg and decoupaged with various Violet-themed ephemera.  These can be used for decorative storage or for wedding decor to hold wedding cards, or even as a prop for photography. 

The One That Got Away


Have you ever found an item that you love, and for one reason or another you didn't buy it, and it haunts you because you can't find another?  That's the case for me with this beautiful vintage coffee can.  I love the graphics, love the shade of blue.  I bid on it on an online auction, intending to bid at the last minute, and FORGOT ABOUT IT! I can't seem to find another.  If you ever find one of these, I'd love to know.

Old Chifferobe Door Mirror


This old mirrored door was the only thing salvageable from an old chifferobe.  I painted it duck egg blue, added another knob directly across from the one on the right, and a sawtooth hanger on the back.  This mirror can be hung on a wall or propped on a shelf.  I would use the knobs to hang necklaces. 

Upcycle Project for the Garden


Very old chipped Blue Ridge Pottery teacups with broken handles are bonded to a heavy iron candelabra which was painted bright celery green.  It can be used in the garden as a bird feeder or a planter for small vining plants

Flea Market Find


A vintage wood soda crate from Roberson's Beverages Inc. It has a nice patina with residual original paint in a lovely 'jadite' green. 

Carte Postale Altered Tin Can


My latest creation - altered tin can embellished with vintage papers, seam binding, dotted netting fabric and rhinestone finding.

A Repurposed Wood Box


I repurposed this old wood box by painting and distressing it, adding some pretty paper and a lovely image from The Graphics Fairy, a sweet little girl with a darling calf, then bonding a vintage finding to the front. It can be used to store keepsakes, vintage linens, etc.

Embellished Bottles


I've been working on some embellished bottles.  I did an Easter bottle with a vintage French postcard image, lace and jewelry findings (front and back view shown), and a "Jeanie" bottle, which has sheet music of "Jeanie with the Light Brown Hair", vintage topaz jewelry findings and lace. 

Tiny Collectibles


Thought I'd post a pic of some small things I have collected - a tiny metal vase with shell flowers, a petite chalkware frame, tiny cup, pink jeweled box, a tiny shaker that I use for stickpins, and a tramp art tin chair....

Mid Century Modern Dollhouse Furniture


I found some old mid century modern dollhouse furniture, painted it charcoal gray, added cushions and decoupaged the coffee table with an image from The Graphics Fairy.

Embellished Bottles


I just completed these two embellished bottles.  They were so fun to do.  I pulled from my stash of vintage laces, images and jewelry findings.  I really need to use this stuff to get my inventory down..

Vintage Blue and Cream Bedroom


Thought you might like a peek into my guest bedroom done in vintage blues and creams...

Farmhouse Style Storage Box


My latest project is a vintage wood box upcycle. I painted the box, then distressed it slightly.  I decoupaged it with pretty farmhouse style papers and the cow image from The Graphics Fairy.  The box was then sealed with spray sealer and the metal knob added to the top.  Use it to store your vintage findings, trinkets, charger cords, whatever you like.  I am adding it to my Etsy shop. 

Summer's End


A few of the last rosebuds from my garden, placed in vintage glass bottles on my kitchen window sill. 

Latest Find - A Vintage Doll Bed


This wooden dollbed has the most wonderful chippy blue-green paint. I discovered it in a disassembled pile. All pieces were there except for the wooden slat as a base for a mattress, which my husband cut out and put in place, then added screws.

Yard Sale Find BEFORE & AFTER, Plus, a fabulous giveaway at Bella Rosa Antiques


I wanted to post about a great giveaway at Bella Rosa Antiques - Jillian is celebrating her shop's 5-year anniversary.  Giveaway is through June 7th, so hurry on over!

Here is a yard sale find from this past weekend, a cute wooden chair that I wanted to spruce up to place in my flower garden.  I painted it using chalk paint in an emerald green, then added a bit of Martha Stewart's Black Coffee antique stain.  I like how it turned out. 

French Label Vanity Tray


I am waaaaay behind in blogging, but between "junking", upcycling, listing items in my Etsy shop, and Pinterest, having a high school senior in the house, not to mention the normal must-do stuff around the house, that doesn't leave a whole lot of time.'s my latest upcycle project, a wood picture frame turned into a vanity tray. I added metal handles, lace under glass and the French label image from Graphics Fairy. I distressed the frame and handles slightly. It fits right into a Paris Apartment or French Chic decor.
