Welcome to "Let's Talk Vintage!"
Each week, bloggers who love vintage
gather together and share their latest
junkin' hauls, projects, collections,
finds listed for sale, and more.
Today I'm sharing a couple of my most
recent projects and some shop updates.
I love how this dresser turned out.
Since there are multiple uses now for dressers, I decided to chalk paint this horizontal style piece in white and gray. I gave it a glamorous look by silver leafing all of the drawer pulls.
Then the top was given a special look with this stencil.
Now it is ready to be given a new home...
as a dresser, buffet, or baby a baby
I still had some Annie Sloan paint left
so I decided this nightstand would be perfect
for a soft pink and cream. Lovely for a baby's
room or for a vintage style girl's room.
I painted the drawer pull in a shabby metallic, not completely covered, but just enough to look vintage.
The feet on this piece were not very
noticeable until I highlighted
areas in cream. Looks like icing
on a cake!
The hubby worked on this old kitchen
table and turned it from drab to fab!
I asked him to add the red "graphic"
trim on the table top. It really made it pop!
I gave new life to a small half-moon
style side table and found this awesome
hand crafted basket by "Harry & David."
It was perfect for a box of silk flowers
I had picked up at a yard sale.
I love its new look!
(The table has already sold.)
I added this pretty mirror... love the
rich color of the frame.
And we added this beautiful Italian marble
coffee table for filler... such gorgeous lines.
So now we have a pretty nice
repertoire in the shop.
August has been a little on the slow side...
but since I am still managing my Etsy shops,
I have plenty to do!
Now let's get to this week's features:
The French Hutch shared her beautiful
gift of peaches and a homemade ice cream
recipe that is no doubt, pretty sweet!
and Heidi of My Sweet Cottage
shared her wonderful, three season
greenhouse. She grows a treasure
trove of beautiful things in there!
and Sandi of Old New Green Redo
shared her latest finds and this
antique pitcher is gorgeous.
Thanks so much for sharing it with us!
