$ave it, Let me PAINT it!!!

Monday April 18th, 2011.

First off.  Check out my Facebook page, and ‘Like’ me for more hints and tips for your home.


So, I just finished up a few more pieces.

A child’s solid wood craft table.  (Forgot before shot.. to excited to paint.) The black is chalkboard paint and accented with shades of blue and teal.

____________________________________________________________________________________ A solid wood china cabinet.  It was faded on the sides and simple look to it.  I took the door off.  There is a nice groove in the back of each shelf to display plates. Finished in a Semi Gloss ‘Oyster’.

After.  For Sale @ Splash Consignment Shop in Emerald Isle, NC.


Here is a small telephone table.  The drawer was missing, so I flipped it around.  The veneer on the apron was falling off.  A lil wood glue and filler and a cleverly placed hand cut and custom stencil, makes the most of its ‘defects’ and gives it a fresh and transitional look.

Purples, grays and blacks are a popular scheme right now.  A victorian-like look paired with a pop of color gives this usually excessively ornate trend a little more bold yet simplified feel.


This little drop leaf table, had some deep scratches in the top of the wood.  It has a mint green eggshell finish with brown leaves (hand cut and custom stencils).  Its fresh and springy and ready for summer on a covered porch.


This was a real hoot.  I didnt take a before photo because I was yet again too excited.

The chairs and table were mismatched finishes.  Sand, prime, paint and protect.  I recommend a glass top because its one of a kind.  It would make a great game table.  Paired up with a red white and blue theme of plates and table mats and napkins, this would be a HOT and fresh look for any sea lover.  Pick this up at Splash Consignment in Emerald Isle for $275.  Support local artists and businesses.

I loooove furniture.  And paint.  Together I can save you money and give you a custom look in your home, and personalize it any way you like, for a fraction of the price.  Most new painted looks go for $1500-$2000.  Depending on the style and application of painting done, we could save you 80%.   So why not customize it and save money and save waste and get something you’ll love forever!?


This was just a faded old wooden box.  Now its got VAVOOM!  With a bright blue and black zebra stripes.  This box and just about everything else can have a new lease on life.
