The Incredible Shrinking Table

This table and chairs is a special order for some really good customers of mine, they have a cottage beach theme in there house so I did my best.  



The best part about this table is the size.
Look how small it is great for small spaces but the secret is it comes with four count it four leaves

Then poof the sides go up

 It's now perfect ready dinner for four

Hosting Thanksgiving diner don't worry just add the FOUR leaves and your ready to go!

In the process of reupholstering the chairs I accidentally shot a stable through my thumb (by the way they are made to go through wood) just saying don't do this. Thank goodness I didn't bleed on the fabric.
It put a whole new spin on "I put my blood, sweat and tears into it"

Beach cottage fabulous

Dark Molasses Dresser

An ugly, dated yellow dresser just got a makeover with molasses by Behr.  The yellow glass window had to be replaced too.

Blast From the Past

Vintage kitchen cabinet, right out of an old house here locally.  Sadly it must have sat in someones barn for a while  because it was disgusting inside, sorry I did not get to capture all of the grossness that was on the inside(I know your sad about not seeing cob webs, dirt grease, mold). With a little cleaning and fresh paint it is actually useable now and would make a great pantry or kitchen storage cabinet for someone.  

I decided not to paint the outside instead I just sanded and sanded and sanded and ...  I really liked the chipping paint and the layers of old paint showing through.  I tried preserving all its original hardware even the glass knobs that someone had painted. I put a layer of polyurethane over the whole cabinet so it would not chip or distress anymore than it already was.
