Rustic Charm in Blues

This old dresser has been in the same family for 40 years...made by my friend's grandfather...with love. I painted it this week and enjoyed every single minute of it! Hoping the family can enjoy it another 40 years. I decided to use nature as my back drop this time and again, my inspiration for the finish comes from the glorious pages of Anthrpologie's catalog:)





And the "before"...


Happy Weekend, Friends!

Vintage Armoire in Mint & Creme & Gold

I am giddy with delight here, Friends!!I finished painting this piece yesterday.  I had just as much fun styling it as I did painting it. 






 I found this hardware at Anthropologie recently and knew right away I had to use it on this piece and it needed to be mint! This is in excellent condition, solid wood and has plenty of available storage. The original details are outstanding,I just freshened it up, giving it a new life,don't you agree?




Happy, happy, happy weekend, Friends!
As always...thanks for letting me share my work...I have the best job;)
Party with us at Miss Mustard Seed's furniture Friday!

French Country Bombay Chest in Gray and Linen

I painted this for a friend using her piece of furniture she had sitting in her entry.  She asked me is to use gray and maybe some creme.  I custom mixed both of these colors and also added the metallic pewter to the beaded trim.  The hardware also received an uplift.  I cannot wait to see her face when we deliver it!!  





Happy Friday, Friends!!

Mid Century Dresser in Yellow & White

This is for all of my mid century friends.  I painted this in the perfect shade of yellow for a modern, clean and fresh look.  The chest in is near perfect vintage condition and solid wood.  I think I have a crush...




I simply cannot be pinned down to one design aesthetic.  I am eclectic, love all furniture styles and just love to paint. This chest is available on my Etsy shop, The Turquoise Iris.

)()( Mid Century Modern Vanity / Desk in Magenta and White

How about this Mid Century piece? Isn't is so chic?  I love the white dipped legs and the new Anthropologie cracked glass knobs. I also added black and white dragonfly paper to all the drawers. Some one needs this in their modern living space, know anyone?





And the horrid "before" photo...
I haven't been brave enough to tackle that stool yet:)

This piece is available to purchase on my Etsy shop, The Turquoise Iris.

Antique Dresser and Mirror in Cloud Gray

This is a custom ordered piece for Tricia, a friend of a friend.  She and her husband are expecting a new baby girl soon and this antique piece gets to be in the nursery on a blush pink wall. I think the colors are so very sweet...what a great choice!


I lined the three larger drawers with this heavy duty faux bois gray and white paper.Also, I added the two flower appliques to each side of the dresser, just for an itty bitty dose of sweetness.




All new hardware too!  I used the gray glass ones on the small top drawers and the larger creme floral on the others.


I hope the new parents will love it as much as I do!
