Are you ready for a ton of pictures? I have worked so hard all week and wanted to share a few pics of my work. Please excuse the basic garage mess!
First up, the Cottage Cabinet. This was the one that my friend, Raquel found in her condo’s garbage After a lot of TLC and a few coats of milk paint, it’s ready to go! The original glass knobs are just to die for! I pick the glass shelves up tomorrow and am just hoping they fit properly. Next up is the little drum table that my sister-in-law found outside in her neighbor’s trash. Yup. Trash. All mahogany with divine details and a sweet drawer. I also happen to love the little lion’s head drawer pulls! This was finished in General Finishes Driftwood.As you can see in the background above, I also finished the gorgeous, lovely, beautiful French dresser. Yes, I am gushing over this one! The hardware alone is spectacular and the piece itself is just so beautifully crafted. This was finished in a mix of chalk paint with clear and dark waxes and the top was refinished and stained in General Finishes gel stain.
Last up is this lovely french bed. Beds don’t typically sell well but this one was too pretty to leave behind. I hope someone has a home for it! A combo of grays, blues, greens and dark and clear waxes plus gold highlights created the look.
I told you there were a lot of pics! And, I’m still not done. Back to the garage, folks 🙂
Wow, awesome stuff! I adore the first cabinet, if I were going to Lucketts this year I would totally snatch it up! I was a vendor the last two years but moved to Louisville, KY in August, it’s just too far for me to travel, but I wish you all the luck and lots of sunshine and dry weather 🙂
Thanks, Susan! Wish you could make it this year but that is quite a drive 🙂 Crossing my fingers for sunshine!
love that cabinet!

You have a wonderful collection of gorgeous furniture Suzanne! I know you will be wildly successful at Lucketts. I hope the weather is picture perfect! … Looks like I’ll have to miss Lucketts this year, so sad!
You have great stuff and I bet you will come home with a nearly empty truck. I wish I could go and see all your treasures! Good Luck!
(Every show that I bring a bed to it always sells, so I hope yours does too!)
I can’t believe that people would actually throw out those 2 first pieces ( I keep getting massacred for painting wood over on Hometalk and people are throwing these in the garbage? )
GORGEOUS transformations – on every piece – just beautiful !!!
LOVE LOVE LOVE the bed
Beautiful furniture and good job as usual…..I hope you have a great weekend and sell all of your furniture
Wish you much success at Lucketts, am not able to get there this year unfortunately, but I’m not giving up. When you get back and have rested, will you check on why I haven’t gotten any of the last eight or so of your posts. I resubmitted my info and got the reply that I was already subscribed. I’ve checked spam, etc. but I haven’t received your posts anywhere. Thank you and again, have a great time at Lucketts!
Everything is so gorgeous! I was wondering just the other day what happened to the bed! Looks like another challenge turned into a beautiful transformation! 72 hours until a hot bath and perhaps 2 Advil? 🙂 I’ll be thinking about you this weekend!
Looking great! Hoping to find you this weekend to see your pieces in person :O)
I am sooo excited to go!

LOVE IT ALL!! Who would throw that table away?!? So glad it was rescued because it’s now amazing! Stopped by via Redoux Interiors.
I can’t imagine people throwing perfectly good pieces in trash, are they crazy or too lazy to take to thrift store? Glad for your sake they didn’t but sure wish somebody would find things and give them to me. Our (Grand Junction, CO) thrift stores are very over priced and even yard sale prices are atrocious. Hardly worth the gas to go looking.
Your pieces are all so beautifully done, loved that one light aqua buffet. Think it was a buffet, was kind of up in front outside. Hope you did very well at Lucketts. Happy weekend
I didn’t think you”d be there?!!! Excited if you are!!!!!
No, I’m not 🙁 but I shared that pic from last year! I will be there as a visitor and will have fun checking out other vendor’s items!
