Here’s another great piece of vintage furniture given an update with paint. The color is  a deep sage green, and the hardware of this French Provincial dresser has been painted silver.  It seems that the painted pieces are selling almost as soon as they are brought in!

This week I want to share with you a vintage Santa that my son found at an estate sale in New Orleans, La. At first I didn’t like it at all, but the more I looked at it I began to see the potential in it. It is glass, and a bronze like color. We decided to put it in one of the booths…it is kinda late to be adding Christmas d├ęcor, but maybe someone passing through will spot it and see the potential in this piece. Anyway, it is very unusual. If any of you have seen one like this, please leave me a comment. We would love to identify it. The people holding the sale date it to the 50’s.

2nd Time Around: A Little Jacket Saves the Day!

This week’s post will be a little different! I visited my grandkids on Sunday afternoon, and when I got ready to leave Cooper wanted to come home with me. I haven’t had a chance to have him as much by himself like I did Connor because he usually wants to come too! But since it was a school night, he had to let Cooper come by himself.

It was bitter cold on Monday, and Kelli had not sent Cooper a coat. He wanted to go eat and play at the mall, and my husband just happened to remember that we had this little jacket that belonged to Connor! Cooper was so proud of it since it belonged to ‘brudder’ as he calls him! He wouldn’t take it off all day! So, this little 2nd Time Around jacket saved the day for us!

I’m in love with this new color one of our vendors is using to paint old furniture! It is a beautiful silvery gray and looks so classy! The old antique brass hardware has been given a facelift in silver too! What is your favorite color when painting furniture?  Thanks for stopping by today!
