Seeing double?! I hope so! 👯‍♀️

We were asked to match this table to a pair of antique twin beds 🛏 and I think we nailed it!
💪🏼🎉💃(before pic in the comments)

We used a combo of General Finishes Millstone, Sunglow, and Snow White for the base color, Burnished Pearl Effects for the gold details, a mix of AS Amsterdam Green & Lamp Black for the green details, Van Dyke Brown Glaze Effects over everything for depth and detail, and of course sealed it in HPTC.

Ahhhhh!!! I may not sleep tonight from excitement!! Y’all know I love me some General Finishes products so I entered several of my pieces in their 2018 Design Challenge and one of my pieces WON 2nd place!! 🎉

AND the freaking icing on the cake - out of 2,015 entries we also won the staging category!!! Only 7 entries out of 2,015 were chosen for that honor and we were one of them!!!! 🎉🎉🎉💪🏼💪🏼💪🏼

I am beyond honored to be recognized amongst such a high caliber of fellow artists from across the country. I have to give a huge thank you to the panel of judges who I know had a tough time deciding, and my local GF distributer NOVA Design and Build for always helping me with the perfect products for my projects. Congratulations to my fellow winners!! It’s time to CELEBRATE!! 💃💃🥂🥂

We just wrapped up another commissioned piece and this one was a doozy! We were asked to match this table to a pair of antique twin beds and I think we nailed it! 💪🏼🎉

Heyyyyy! We got a shout out from the famous Annie Sloan herself!! How amazing! 🎉🎉

This stunning piece was done by Courtney at Twig & Thyme Design in Virginia. Courtney, inspired by her visit to Versailles in 2016, elegantly combined the softness of Paris Grey Chalk Paint® with the glamour of Bright Gold Gilding Wax to achieve this luxe finish. After painting with Paris Grey and sealing with Clear Wax, Courtney added some Dark Wax on the details for warmth and interest. The floral details, hardware and edges were topped off with gilding wax to really make them shine! Find more of her work here;

Courtney buys her paint and products from creative soul and talented Stockist Celeste Blumenauer of Catfish Sudios in Gaithersburg, Maryland;

Remember that room at your grandparents house 🏠 that you always played in when you were little? I know I do. I can still picture the matching twin beds and the antique vanity in between them. I can even remember the smell of the vintage pressed powder compact in the top vanity drawer. Oh the memories.

When my customer first reached out to me she shared that her Grandmother had passed away and this piece that she inherited use to be in the grandkids “clubhouse” guest room. She always loved it because of the style with the drawers and doors but it was in bad shape and needed an extreme makeover.

This piece was my most difficult project so far this year but also my most rewarding. Being able to give new life to cherished heirloom pieces so that the next generation can enjoy them for years to come makes everything that I do totally worth it. 💕

I don’t know which I LOVE more, that FLAWLESS finish or that DARLING paper! 😍😍😍 Totally smitten with this one!

Paper from HomeGoods and General Finishes paint from NOVA Design and Build

Remember that piece I’ve been working on for the last few weeks?! Well, she’s finally done!! 🎉🙌🏼 Everything from her finish to her staging was exactly what I had hoped for and I couldn’t be happier! Wait until you see her full transformation! 😍💕

The final piece to the fabulous vintage 3 pc bed set made it’s way home yesterday just before the big thunderstorm ⛈.

This photo from Corrie at Inspired By U always makes me giggle. Gone are the days of actually having a place in the garage for anything other than furniture 🤣🤣🤣

Can anyone else relate 😂🤣😂🤣

Choosing a black and white finish is a great way to update a beautiful vintage piece without taking away from its classic beauty.

This gorgeous oak Curio Cabinet has been passed down three generations and has now received a modern yet classic makeover to bring her up to date.

We used General Finishes Black Poly paired with Antique White poly for that perfectly smooth and durable finish. The dainty paw feet, scroll detail, and edges were all lightly distressed for some added rustic charm.

Choosing a black and white finish is a great way to update a beautiful vintage piece without taking away from its classic beauty. Stay tuned to check out the rest of this gorgeous transformation.

Music and laughter fill the evening air.
There’s dancing, “What marvelous dancing,” Alice thought while admiring the lords and ladies glide smoothly across the ballroom floor of Versailles. She lingers a while just outside soaking it all in, and then she spots her. A sight of beauty. Clothed in the most regal attire with hair that stretches to the sky. It’s Marie Antoinette. They lock eyes and with a gentle smile, she floats toward Alice parting the crowd without a single word.

She takes Alice by the hand and leads her through room after room of grandeur. Sparkling chandeliers, marble columns, and lustrous gold are everywhere. Elaborate furnishings in hues of emerald, sapphire, and ruby surround them. It’s a sight to be seen. They reach the grand hall and there it is.
The most beautiful vanity Alice has ever seen and it is hers. A gift from Marie Antoinette. Like Alice, it’s dressed in a shade as blue as the sky, with ribbons of white and adornments in Parisian gold. With her eyes wide, and her mouth gaping in awe, Alice proclaims,
“This, is the new Wonderland.”

Have you heard the story of when Alice visited Marie Antoinette in Versailles? Keep your eyes peeled tomorrow to read all about it!

Congratulations again to the winners of our last giveaway! 🎉🎉🎉

They chose to customize this awesome coffee table in a custom mix of General Finishes Persian Blue & Pure White Milk Paint with a white wash, detailed glazing, and distressing for added detail. We completed the makeover by pairing this amazing paint color with a light stained top to match their hardwood floors and silver cup pulls for a fresh and current look.

Ever wonder what steps are taken to achieve the finished look?? Well, to give you an idea, this piece received a 9 step treatment this week! We cleaned, sanded, cleaned again, primed, painted, white wash, detail glazing, distressing, and top coat. That’s not even counting the sanding between each layer of primer, paint, and topcoat. You should see my muscles!! 💪🏼💪🏼🤣AND we haven’t even talked about the stained top!!

Anyone who says furniture painters/artists just “slap it on” better think again! We work our tails off to give each and every customer a quality piece that they can love and enjoy in their home. #shopsmall #sneakpeek
