    Sweet Vintage Three Legged Half Moon Tables

    These two beautiful side tables were a treasure that belonged to my husbands Great Grandmother.   I just had to have them, there were so different, notice that each one is flat on one side, three legged and half moon.    The wood was so dark it gave it a rid hue to them, almost mahogany looking.  I decided to brighten them up with a mustard yellow from Dixie Bell Paints and then added a pineapple stencil for the fruit symbolizes those intangible assets we appreciate in a home: warmth, welcome, friendship and hospitality.  It warms my heart each time I look at them to know that they are our families and that makes them so special…

    Beautiful Bedroom Makeover

    I was asked by my friend to makeover her oak bedroom set. It was a large set and she wanted it to be white antique, but with such a huge set, we decided to pull in another color of her choice to break up the white.  She chose Chiffon Cream Rustoleum chalk paint which she found on Amazon, Dixie Belle Mason Dixon Grey on the drawer fronts finished with a Dixie Belle Hi Ho Silver Glaze. On the men’s wardrobe, she wanted to do something different so we used Deep Plum Seas by Chateau Chic and accented the top with the Mason Dixon Grey. I finished everything with Maison Blanche Antique Dark Brown Wax to seal it.  The Grey with he glaze gave the pieces a really cool purple hue and it looks beautiful with a slight shine.

    Coca Cola Table and Stools

     

    One of my favorites, I am not really a big Coca Cola collector, just seen this at a Georgia Antique Show held at th.  I just knew I was going to make a table out of it, so I put a top on it made from reclaimed wood.  I sprayed the ice chest with a sealer to help it stay nice since it is outside.  I went on line to look for some rustic stools and found these, but the tops were so hard to sit on so I went back on line and found Coca Cola fabric and made some stool covers.  I have it on my back porch at our log cabin and love sitting at it with my coffee or cocktail.

    New Life for Nesting Tables

    I picked these tables from a friends grandmothers house they were antique gold and green, need I say ugly ugly ugly I was not sure I even wanted them, but I took them anyways thinking I will try to make something of them and if it fails I could throw them away.

    So I got to work and painted them CECE Caldwells Parchment and took a sandpaper block to them to distress them, I used a clear wax by Maison Blanche and touched the edges with Annie Sloan warm gilding wax.  I finished them with a three coats of Dixie Bell Gator Hide so that they will be waterproof on the top in case company puts a glass or plate on them.  They turned out terrific and now belong to my daughter.

    I love nesting tables, you don’t see them around often but they are really great for company.

    Storage For for a Man Cave

    This is a piece that was given to me. It’s from the 1980’s, heavy solid oak wood, wall center…TV Stand… Desk… Book case? I guess what ever you want it to be,.

    The new owner wanted me to paint it for his Man Cave/Gun Shop, so I used a Gray Chalk paint from Home Depot and a Black chalk paint from Dixie Bell. I finished with a dark brown wax from Maison Blanche and added some new hardware in Pewter.

    Simple Side Table

    I love to go out junkin’ in the south GA area when we’re at our cabin there. Here’s a sweet little side table project that I did a while back for the cabin. It started out looking a little rough, but the finished piece is just darling.

    Build That Wall!

    When we decided that we needed more room at our GA cabin, we decided to add a small “guest suite.” With the help of my handy hubby and kids, we built a cozy suite that we know our friends and relatives will love to stay in. Of course, we couldn’t just throw up some drywall or something plain like that – we had to make it our own, so we did a really cool wall treatment in the bedroom that I wanted to share.

    We found some amazing old pieces of wood while out junkin, and used them to create a work of art as the back wall for the room. Here are a few pics that show you the process of selecting the wood then assembling “the wall.”
