Around the Shop: Furniture Makeovers

Happy Friday! Today I thought I'd share a few furniture makeovers that we have done for the shop lately. I love how each piece looks totally different once they were painted and freshened up. Here are the before and after pictures.

Guest Bedroom Update

I recently bought this antique chest at an auction for our guest bedroom upstairs. I thought it was the perfect size for storage and for holding a small TV for future guests. 


If you happened to miss the post about this rooms progress you can read more about it here.


I moved the chest across from the bed on an empty wall and relocated the distressed trunk for more walking room.


I initially placed a mirror above the chest, but wasn't crazy about it, then I remembered I had some of my great grandmothers antique plates stashed away. They seemed perfect for displaying along with several other pieces of white china I had in my collection.


I love the crazing on the middle plate along with its imperfections and years of stains.


I picked a few of the first blooms from our hydrangea bush we planted last year for a simple arrangement.


Now I'm excited to search for more white plates to add to my collection!


Thanks for stopping by today.

French Side Table Makeover


Today I'm sharing a quick and easy paint project that I worked on for my office upstairs. This french side table didn't start out so pretty. In fact, here's how it looked before. 



The painted flowers and brass hardware dated this side table, but the curvy legs and details were so beautiful. I painted it white and lightly distressed it for an updated new look.


I'll be sharing more images around this space soon.

Antique Dresser


Recently we have added several traditional antique pieces of furniture in our house. This mahogany flamed dresser found a new home in a spare room downstairs. This room will one day be our nursery, but until then it's being used as a sitting room.



This vignette is decorated with an eclectic mix of new and old pieces. The lamps, mirror, and pillows are new while the chairs, shutter, and other accessories are vintage.



Another feature that I love about this room is the detailed mirrored closet doors that date back to the 1800's.  


They are a main focal point of the room that add so much character to the space. I was so excited we were able to incorporate them into the new house!


This antique secretary is a family piece past down from my husbands family. It will eventually be moved upstairs to the guest bedroom.


I really love the look of the dark dresser with the light colored walls and accessories.


Thanks for stopping by today!

Spring Porch


Good afternoon! Today I thought I would share the progress of our spring porch. We are coming up on a year since we moved into our new house and we finally have the back porch projects finished. This past weekend we were busy hanging drapes and putting the new black sofa together.


 It's so nice to have the back porch all cleaned up and decorated for the warmer weather. We enjoy sitting outside at night watching TV, just lounging and relaxing.


There is a variety of vintage and newer pieces mixed together with DIY projects to create a comfortable, extended living space outside. 


For example, the wooden bench and chippy shutters were flea market finds, the iron tables, rug, pillows, and sofa is new, and the rustic coffee table was revamped by us. 


I can't get enough of bright potted flowers and ferns this time of year! They really help freshen up the back porch.





This decorative mirror and boxwood wreath are perfect for this black iron table.


We bought canvas Sunbrella fabric and cut to length for instant outdoor drapes. We tried drop-cloth fabric drapes at our old house and loved the look, but they mildewed and were a mess. So we decided to go with real outdoor fabric and just make our own this go around. 


Not only do I love the look of the drapes, but they are perfect for sun control and allow privacy too.



I'm sure we will be spending a lot of time out here this spring and summer.


I hope you have a blessed Wednesday!

Distressed Chest

Happy Monday! Today I wanted to share with you this small pine chest that I updated for our store. Someone actually gave us this piece of furniture for free- can't beat that! It was one of the many projects that I worked on this past week. 


Since this piece had such simple lines, I thought it needed to be distressed for added character.


Here's what it looked like before.



I simply updated the hardware from brass to oil rubbed bronze with spray paint.


I'm excited how this freebie chest looks with a fresh coat of paint.

Vintage Egg Prints


Since it's Easter week, I thought it would be fitting to share with you my recent art purchases from a flea market. They are vintage egg prints that I had framed for our living room. 



The speckled eggs are so subtle in color, yet they have a beautiful sage green background that makes them stand out. 


Lately the simplicity and beauty of nature has inspired me in decorating our home. The framed prints make a great addition hanging on either side of the cased opening leading into the kitchen.  




I also bought these vintage fern prints from the same vendor. I had them framed in a chunky gold frame for our kitchen dining area. You can see more details about that space here.   




If your interested I found these (1, 2, 3) free vintage inspired bird's egg printables for instant art. 

Wishing you and your family a blessed and happy Easter!
