Cabinet Makeover

Here's what the cabinet looked like before I painted and repaired it. It was plain white with green trim and flower decals. Ugh.  

Now it's painted a masculine dark blue-gray with a little distressing, which I'm currently loving. Originally this was a liquor cabinet/bar, but I think it would make a great TV console to hide electronic components in a small space.


Chippy Walls- Inspiration

When I came across this gorgeous photo the other day, it made me stop and stare. I just couldn't believe how charming these chippy, distressed wooden walls looked. I'm use to distressing furniture, but this takes distressing to an entire new level. I would love to try this application on a paneled wood wall or wood beam ceiling someday. 

For more inspiration, check out these amazing interiors by Tracery Interiors. Their team does an amazing job designing these homes.

I love the neutral color palette used throughout this space. It has a classic and timeless style that will not tire throughout the years. I'll definitely be referring back to this photo for inspiration when we build a house.

Thanks for stopping by. 


Distressed Blue Chest

The last few weeks have been extremely busy. We went to Nashville for our five year wedding anniversary and then I went with my mom to visit my sister in Atlanta last weekend. I've been getting back into the swing of things at the store this week. I wanted to share with you a few new pieces of furniture I completed this week. This five drawer blue chest went from ugly to lovely with just a little paint and some distressing. Now it's ready for a new home!

Here's another piece I've been working on. This pale yellow cabinet with woven baskets would be perfect for extra storage in a bathroom. I just love the way it turned out!

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great weekend!


Mantel Makeover

I hope you had a great weekend. We just got home from a fun weekend trip to Nashville. I haven't blogged in over a week and I just wanted to drop in and share with you this gorgeous mantel we put in our store last week. It has so many beautiful details that I love: the simple moldings, the mirror, the curvy lines on the top, and the shabby, distressed look. I think this mantel would make an excellent upholstered queen headboard! 

We found this mantel last year and it has been sitting in our back room at the store forever. It has been one of those slow going projects. I'm not even sure why, because it has so much potential, but just one that kept getting pushed to the back burner. 

This is what it looked like before we painted it. It had dark wood with burn stains that looked oh so blah and boring. As soon as we painted it the details and moldings were instantly highlighted and updated.

This mantel makeover proves that a little paint goes a long way. 

I'll share our weekend finds sometime this week. . . stay tuned. 

Thanks for stopping by!
