It's Show and Tell Monday ... a good, fun start to the week. I have a few pictures of some things I picked up over the week and a few finished projects. Some of you may remember seeing this piece in white from a few weeks ago. Once in a great while, a really good customer will want a piece repainted in a different color. For a reasonable fee I am willing to do that. So this white piece is now in soft pink for a bedroom. It's great to use differnt pieces in a room. This is a dining room server being used in a bedroom. Fun!


These two tables and very small dresser I picked up over the weekend. The kidney shaped table has beautiful legs. The side table with a drawer (which my MIL actually found) is a great size. This small dresser is fabulous for a girl's room. I love getting a whole bunch of new pieces to work on.



This was my find of the week. I found this wonderful drop leaf table with four matching chairs at my favorite junk shop. The owner is so good to me and knows what I like. Won't this be awesome in distressed white?? I'm going to start working on it today.


This desk is a custom order. The client's uncle made this for her and she asked me to paint it to match her daughter's room. It' soft pink, yellow and green with a touch of blue. There wasn't a lot of surface for pattern so I added some polka dots here and there. Thanks for visiting ...
