We came up with a name.... Lace & Sawdust! Suits us perfectly~ she is the Lace with a keen eye for the beautiful and timeless treasures that every one wants to adorn their homes with, and I am normally covered in turquoise colored Sawdust from distressing my little heart out.
Look for us in an antique store near you!
Mean-time... Here are some of my latest.
Had to do another turquoise dresser, this time with a mirror to match.
The woman I stole...I mean, bought this from says it was made in Panama in the 1930's. All mahogany. I had to keep the top unpainted, such a great looking piece of wood. I sanded down and refinished the top only and Annie Sloaned the rest with all the usual suspects. I added some new knobs of course and some wood appliques to dress it up. I'm a permanent fixture now at my local Hobby Lobby. I had this gorgeous mirror already which complemented the wood tones perfectly.
Here it is before...
And a cute little chippy wood window shelf. A little stenciling and a lot of sanding involved.
Gotta go clean the sawdust out of my ears now...
