White Side Tables

I picked up these side tables at my favorite furniture market a couple of months ago.  I loved the straight lines and simplicity of them.  Bonus was that there was 2 of them.

I went with white to keep with the simplicity.

Antique Card Table

A few weeks ago, I got an email from a client, asking if I could fix up an antique card table from her Grandfather.  It was missing a leg, so I turned to my trustworthy, talented, always on-call carpenter (also know as Dad).  His response "I like to think we can fix anything".

And since I can paint anything, I took the challenge.

Here's how this beauty turned out after.  What a gorgeous piece.

2 Colour Tall Mirror

I love experimenting with different colours and techniques.  One technique I have grown to love is a two colour effect.  I recently completed this mirror and just love how it turned out.  It would look beautiful in a powder room, or an entry way, or even a bedroom on top of a dresser.

Paris Gray Side Table

I found this stunning side table at an antique market a while ago and decided it needed a coat of my favourite Paris Gray.  This colour is gorgeous.  It's cool, chalky, beachy, and goes with everything.

 How cool is this hardware.  Usually, I would paint it to match, but I just couldn't paint these guys.  They are under the top, so you can't see them...  LOVE awesome hardware like this!

Hall Tree AGAIN!!!!

I swear, this is the last hall tree I will be doing for a loooong time!  I just couldn't resist this piece.  The size is perfect for narrow hallways that don't have a lot of storage.  This thing is solid wood, and I couldn't get over the detail on the bottom brackets.  It's an antique replica (hence the low price tag), but the marble inlay is vintage.  Seriously, I love this piece and I hope it goes to a warm home that will love it as much as I do.

Beachy Living Space

Just wrapped up one of my most favourite spaces ever for a very special Grandma!  She wanted a beachy space to relax in.  My first instinct was to fill the room with painted white furniture and soft greens and blues, but I was faced with a challenge!  No painting the rosewood dining set!  So, the entire design was based around incorporating warm toned woods, with cool beachy colours.  This is what I came up with.  

The Before Pics....

And the Afters!!!

Antique Mirror

I recently purchased this gorgeous antique mirror at an auction in Kitchener (Thanks Mom for being the best and bringing it home for me).  It was in rough shape when I got it, but had the most amazing detailing.  And the best part, is it's old, weathered, antique mirror.  I L-O-V-E antique mirror.... tiny bubbles, little bumps, and small knicks.  The best.

So, with some tlc, I brought it back to life.  Errrr, going to be hard to say good bye to this one!

Blanket Box

It brings me nothing but joy to have a forgotten piece of furniture make it's way back into a home because of my work.

Enter, Grandpa's old, broken forgotten blanket box.

This poor thing had been beaten up and even lost a leg.  But after a couple of weeks in my work shop, it's looks perfectly 'antiqued', and is ready to be a loved piece, full of memories, once again.
