A heartfelt thank you to everyone who commented yesterday on my rather long “vent” post. I really cannot express how much it meant to me and how you really gave me a boost when I really needed it. The fact that you took time out of your day to write me is incredible. I read each comment carefully and was amazed at what you had to say. Such fantastic advice, help and inspiration. Thank you!!!
I need to follow what you said and get back to work. Suck it up, buttercup 🙂 so I jumped in today with the little vintage record cabinet. It was the perfect “fun” project to work on.
With a combo of Duck Egg Blue, Coco and hand painted white details, here is the after!
For sale on Etsy and Shop Furniture/Cabinets!
Wow. Could not be prettier. I love the hand painted flowers. You should get the “blues” more often if this is the result!! Love the watering can too…..
such a pretty piece, suzanne!
Thank you Cassie!
This is darling! It would make a great bar cabinet.

I love the flowers and can’t wait to see more hand-painted designs ! Also, Suzanne, I really like your new photo and header images.
Love the cabinet! Your new picture is beautiful too. You look like Scarlet Johanson. Not sure I spelled her name right but you know who I mean.
I am so flattered! (I doubt Scarlett would be lol!) thanks so much!!
Beautiful work! Wish I could hand paint like you!

wow anger gets you going ha ha this is so awesome great piece, keep the faith and remember karma lol xx
Suzanne, I love the beautiful piece you’ve created. You’re a true artist and your creations are so distinctive. Keep doing what you do best! Don’t let the ‘buzzards’ get you down! Lazy people want to steal from those of us who have spent blood, sweat and tears to hone our own individual craft. I paid my own way, worked, & took out college loans to attend nine years of college to achieve what I wanted in my profession. And, yet several envious, lazy people through the years have told me that I was just ‘lucky’ to have achieved what I have. One person told me I must have had an ‘easy’ life, and several asked me what connections I had to get to where I was professionally. I told them that I earned my success the hard way…..I worked for it! I said that while they were watching T.V., going to movies, having fun, etc., I was working my way through college and graduate school. “You just gotta want to pay the price”, I told them. That shut them up fast! You go Girl! Never give up, Bev
Love the color & love the design on the drawers. So cute.
Love the love and the design.. Great Job !!!

See, here’s a perfect example of your talent! Fabulous…love the colors and the pretty floral hand painted “artistic” touch that is your trademark. Chin up, paint brush in hand, and show us what you’re made of girl 🙂
Thank you, Marie!!!
I knew you would come up with something awesome for this cabinet and you did not disappoint me. The colors are great together…..wonderful job.
This piece is so lovely and those hand painted flowers wow,great job!!!
I’m diggin’ at how many cool pieces you find and how they all look so different after you do them. I know that sometimes I find an old wood piece that is so gorgeous as the original dark wood…but sometimes a pop of color does something amazing to it as well!
Can I ask, where do you find all your cool finds (besides family helping you curbside or donations from friends and family.lol), and how much do you usually spend on most of them?
Hi Stephanee, I find my items at thrift stores. I don’t pay more than about $45 for anything unless it is spectacular. They are always in bad condition and require a lot of work, which is why I get them for less. Thanks!
