Quilt Store Next Door spce

I have a new space! My friend Shelley, of Quilt Store Next Door, recently decided to expand, and had enough space to house a few creative booths. I'm so grateful to be one of those vendors!

Earlier this week was moving day, and everyone has been busy filling their spaces and Shelley & crew have breaking records in getting the shop ready for today's reopening. 

Here's a little sneak of my space!



Stay tuned for more pictures from around the shop, and Congratulations Shelley!!!

Fresh aquamarine desk..A before and after

I was so excited to paint this desk for a client. The desk was in sad shape when I bought it, but I knew it could be fabulous with a bit of work!

I'm in love with the color that my client picked. it's a minty fresh aquamarine..and just gorgeous!

A bit of sanding, a couple of coats of my chalk paint, several layers of wax and some new jewelry and she was ready for her new home!

The aqua compliments the coral in my client's room perfectly..another happy customer!

The Pianist's table: A before and after.

One of the things I have the most trouble doing is documenting my projects. Which causes me to not write the post about the project because I have no pictures, which causes me to not blog at all because I don't have anything to show/tell.

I'm going to be better about it.

That being said, I did actually remember to take some pictures of a few of my recent purchases. The first of which was this sad little table with a marble insert that had suffered a break and subsequent unsightly repair.

The repair that had been made was solid, so the insert didn't need to be replaced, just given a facelift. 
Enter our old standby Mod Podge, and some vintage sheet music.

Add a bit of Ink Chalky paint and a poly-acrylic sealant and she is dressed and ready for the curtain to rise!
