Show and Tell Monday ...
First I have to say WHERE IS SPRING???!!! Here in the Northeast it still feels very much like winter. On Friday, the first day of Spring, there were a some snowflakes flying around. Today we got up to 25 degrees and very cold wind. It's sunny, thankfully, but oh so cold.
I did get a few pieces done this week. I finished a special order for a client. This pretty secretary is for her daughters room to serve as a desk and storage. It is pure white with no distressing.

This piece was fun. I used to paint mostly children's furniture in a mix of colors and patterns. I did this cute little dresser in pink and white with pink knobs. I think it can be for a little girl or for a cottage bedroom.



I finished another white distressed dresser for a shop display but forgot to take a photo. Thanks for visiting ...

That secretary is so pretty. I have a thing for desks. I end up with so many, every room has one!
Like that pink stripey bureau, just perfect for a little girl.
