Is Spring on It's Way? We're Getting Ready!

Sunday, January 29, 2012

The birds have actually started singing their spring nice to hear.  Winter hasn't gotten the best of us this year, it actually has been very mild!  I think it's a reward for the trials we faced last winter!  We have been busy trying to keep out web site filled, but thanks to our loyal sweet customers it just never seems to stay that way!  No complaints here!  The fun is coming up with new ideas and pretty usable items and keeping ahead of trends.  We are always searching for great items to have to offer on line and at our Brimfield Antique show!  The addition of color has been new for us, one that has been a successful addition. Here is a little peek at some new items we have recently added to our web site.
We have just finished this amazing brass and iron twin bed.  The line on it are wonderful!  The gentle curve of the foot board makes this bed such a special piece!
We have painted her a shade of pretty French Teal and gave her finish a time worn weathered look.
We cleaned her lovely brass fittings but left a little patina to make her look like the vintage beauty she is!
We have been finding some AWESOME upholstered pieces to redo, we thought this end of the bed petite couch came out adorable!
We have newly painted her a creamy white, lightly distressed and then had her upholstered in a vintage looking  rose chintz.  The piping has been done in a dreamy pink plaid......the combination is scrumptious! The rose chintz fabric is reminiscent of the type of fabric you would see in the 1940s......sO rOmAnTiC!
We chose to use box pleats around the bottom to give her a pretty Romantic Cottage Look.
Something about the box pleats and the pink plaid piping makes me smile....
How about a 1920s radio cabinet turned into a fabulous shelf?  It would be the perfect candidate for some great storage baskets.....
She would be fun to use in a bathroom, library, cottage bedroom or family room...the possibilities are endless!
Tomorrow is a new day.....wonder what we will come up with?   Hmmmm....we'll see!

  2. I love this piece !! What is the name of that gorgeous blue !! Love it, Love it !!

  3. Love the painted bed. Just wondering, did you first paint it white then teal?

    1. The bed was already white underneath, so yes, I painted teal over white. Thanks for loving it!

  4. Where did you purchase French teal paint?
