A Collection of Furniture Art for Inspiration

This French Provincial Server will be a showstopper whether in the dining room or living room as an entertainment center.  Hand-painted in ASCP Old White with clear wax and the top is finished with Annie Sloan dark and black wax.  Measuring 62"w x 21"d x 34"ht.

A traditional chest of drawers has been salvaged from the furniture graveyard!  I am amazed with how beautiful this turned out.  I wanted to just refinish the wood on this entire piece, but the shell was in terrible shape, so the next best thing was to salvage the drawers.  I sanded them down to the natural wood and then applied Linseed Oil to condition.  That's where the magic happened!  The natural mahogany wood is so beautiful and is complemented so well by the black base.  I found this awesome iron hardware and decorative wall covering to line the drawers, both which give this piece a stately & handsome look!  Standing 45" x 20.5" x 35.5" ht., it is just the right size for a foyer, TV cabinet or bedroom.

This 1960's mid century modern console has been given a glamorous life!  Handpainted in Annie Sloan Pure White and Paris Gray with Gold Leaf accents, she now sits with beauty and sparkle!  The interior is in pristine condition with designer wall-covering as the drawer liner.  This would make a great addition to a bedroom, foyer or as a TV stand.  This piece measures 52" x 18" x 30.5" tall.

This revived cabinet has been brought up to date with the hand painted finish of ASCP in Duckegg Blue and Old White with dark/clear wax.  The interior is painted a solid Old White to show off your collectables, dishes, linens, sweaters....this list is endless!  Original hardware and lined fabric drawer add to the feminine appeal and the caster feet allow for ease of movement.  This beauty will bring character and elegance to any decor.  41" x 15" x 63-1/2" tall.

This Bassett desk is solid wood with dovetail drawers.  When received, this beauty was a beast!  It had water damage, scratches and scars, looking quite sad.  After a little TLC... sanding, cleaning, staining, painting, buffing, waxing, clear coat and new hardware, this gem is a real jewel!  The finish is inspired by a piece I saw in a Pottery Barn catalog. Using ASCP in Graphite, I applied the paint and once dry, then scrubbed the surface with a wet rag (called wet distressing).  This gives a casual worn look to the piece and allows the original wood finish to come through.  The drawers were sanded, more in some places than others, and then another coat of stain was applied, which took darker on the edges.  The top was sanded smooth to the bare wood and a fresh coat of stain was applied.  I just love how this desk turned out.  It is the perfect size for a boutique or home office, measuring 55"x22"x30-1/2"tall.

This 'Brandt' Library Table is a sweet vintage find.  With the original mahogany finish and laminated top, it showed some rough usage.  I removed the already peeling laminate top to reveal a wood plank base.  It showed of old glue, blackened areas in the wood and gouges.  I started up my new sander and went to town removing the old remnants left from the laminated top.  I thought I would never get it smooth, but after almost an hour of working on it, it was smooth, but with the black stains still visible.  I wasn't sure how the walnut stain would do, but once I applied 3 coats, I really fell in love with this shabby rich finish.  Coupled with the ASCP Pure White painted base and antique wax finish, this becomes a beautiful accent table suitable with the Farmhouse style or Shabby Chic decor.  It measures    53-1/2"x 15" x 29-1/2" tall

These end tables have captured the farmhouse look so popular today.  With the walnut stained top and ASCP Old White hand painted base and distressed touches, these make a cozy addition to any gathering room.  The petite drawers are even lined with a whimsical fabric (selected by my husband).  I just love the quatrefoil knobs in black.  

27" x 23" x 22"tall.

This dainty vintage vanity is a special piece.  The previous owner purchased this 25 years ago from an antique dealer.  I have no idea of the actual age, but it is a delicate and beautifully aged piece.  The mirror is usable (is only digitally frosted to mask the distracting reflection), however, it does have an aged appearance with imperfections.  This piece was finished with ASCP Paris Gray with silver leaf accents and a dark antique wax to show off the embellishments.   Added stenciling on the drawers and decorative glass knobs give it a more feminine whimsy. Measurements are 41" long x 19-1/2" deep x 30" high (floor to surface). The inset measures 16"w x 10-1/2"ht.

This cute chest is functional for a child's room, a bedside table or an accent storage chest.  The clean, simple lines make it a great modern accent or a transitional chest to pair with any decor.    Measuring 41"w x 20"d x 28-1/2"ht., this chest is finished in ASCP Napoleonic Blue with Black wax and brushed gold hardware.

Now here is some whimsy to add to your decor!  If you love fun, interesting conversation pieces, these will be the center of attention.  They are not your average living room tables.  With bright blue and green finish and the hand painted/stenciled peacock feathers, these unique tables are versatile as a coffee table or two low end tables.  Measuring 18" x 18" x 18"ht., with ASCP Napoleonic Blue, Florence and Antibes Green applied in the stippling technique, they are both space saving and statement making.  

This table and chair set is the epitome of farmhouse rustic!  Finished in Paris Grey with Pure White dry brush and the top and seats layered with Graphite, Paris Grey, Pure White w clear and black wax, they will be the focal point of any farm kitchen!  

These beauty's are the first to be completed for the new year!  The painted finish in Old White and Graphite give these a clean and simple look, yet they are very functional. Whether nested in a cozy beach cottage or a modern loft apartment downtown, they will be a great addition to your home. Dimensions are 21"w x 26"d x 22 tall.

These end tables are a playful addition to any room in your home, whether an office, bedroom or greatroom, the color is fun and bright. The cute owl hardware is a copper finish and the distressed touches make these a great pop of color added to a neutral palette. Measurements are 24" x 20" x 24" high.

What a pretty little table!  In it's previous life, it was a sewing table.  I love the size of it, especially the height.  It stands 22"wide x 17" deep x 31" tall.  The finish is a technique blend of ASCP Chateau Gray, Florence, Arles and Antibes Green applied in a way that leaves this really cool textured finish.  This would make a great table for a small foyer.

I'm thrilled with this latest project!  This is a bedside table belonging to my Grandmother for all the years I can remember.  It's a mahogany reproduction, that had a lot of wear and tear on it from being in storage.  I lovingly sanded the top and only applied linseed oil to seal the beauty of the natural wood color.  The base of the piece is hand painted in Annie Sloan custom mix of Napoleonic Blue, Old White and Paris Grey.  After allowing one coat to dry, I painted a thin coat of Duck Egg Blue and used water to blend it.  Then I rubbed random areas with a wet rag to allow the bottom color to come through.  Finally, I applied clear and dark wax to give the piece a slightly aged look and define the edges.  This piece is not for sale, however, the finish is reproduce-able if you have a mahogany piece.

This little accent table has so much personality!  Originally black, it's now doning my new Signature color, Aegean, which is a mixture of blues and greens.  This was my first Give-Away, but I can duplicate the finish if wish to have something custom painted!

Hand painted in ASCP Provence, this grouping is a beautiful accent with an existing bed or use them individually for pops of color intermingled within your decor. The dresser stands 52" x 18" x 30 1/2"ht.  The night stand measures 28" x 16 1/2" x 27" ht. The drawers have been lined in decorative butterfly paper.  The bookcase with the 'whimisied' fabric back stands 36" x 12" x 36"ht.  

This dining suite is actually made up of 3 different styled pieces.  However, they all become a dynamic grouping with a little help from Annie Sloan. All pieces are hand painted finish in Coco and dry-brushed with Old White finished followed by clear wax.  A decorative stencil and glass hardware give this piece a touch of whimsy.

This table was a great find and it's packed with personality.  The large easy glide drawer and pull out writing surface make this table functional, as well as, beautiful. The soft colors of ASCP Old White and Linen keep this a neutral piece, but the whimsical stencil makes it a unique addition to most any décor.

This coffee table is the perfect addition to a large family room with a need for a game or homework table.  It will be the center of  the family activities, measuring 54" long x 32" wide x 22" high.  Solid wood construction makes this a sturdy piece that will stand the test of time.   The hand painted finish is Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Paris Gray and Old White with dark antique wax.  A decorative stencil and distressed touch gives this piece a uniquely comfortable worn feeling that will accent any decor.

This antique 3 drawer dresser got a fun update bohemian style!  The original marble top was not used and instead a new wood top was attached and painted with  whimsical Bohemian Mandalas.  Hand painted in ASCP, the colors of Paris Gray, Graphite, Duck Egg Blue and Emile were blended to create this wonderful affect which reminds me of an evening sunset horizon.  The original hardware was replaced with these fun crystal-like knobs with the wonderful antiqued back plate complementing the painted mandalas.  Measuring 42" x 18" x 32"high, this piece can be used in numerous places such as foyer accent chest, kitchen island to store linens, a dining side board or a typical dresser.

These round tables are versatile end tables or accent tables.  The finish compliments the primitive style furniture or pairs well with the ever popular farmhouse style. The stipple brush technique on the legs blends ASCP Arles and Old White while the top has a striae effect blending the same colors and finishing off with Dark wax. Measurements are 24" diameter and 24-1/2" ht.

This is a great table to accent your decor with your favorite keepsakes, books and accessories or even use it in a guest area for towels and bath accessories.  Hand painted in GF Summertime Blue and the interior back is covered in a gray and white fabric. This piece measures 36-1/2" x 14-1/2" x 28-1/2"tall.
