Hello all my bloggerette friends! Yes, I'm still kicking and I thought I would take a few minutes to share a some of the pieces I refinished in 2014.
I know I haven't been posting on my blog, but when I wasn't recovering from a shattered shoulder blade I have been painting furniture. I have also decided to not spend as much time blogging so that I have more time to actually work.
So without further ado here are a few things I refurbished this year, and what I hope will be some inspiration for you in 2015.
I had so much fun this year painting found frames, mirrors, and home decor.
All painted using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint of course.
I picked up another jewelry armoire and went lavender with cute graphic details.
The images are courtesy of the Graphics Fairy.
I added appliques and dry brushed this antique cabinet white, and painted the inside Emperor's Silk for a friend.
This antique dresser got two coats of Duck Egg blue and Old White. I added appliques to the mirror, lace details to the drawers, and transferred an image to the top.
The inside of the drawers were painted Antoinette Pink for a nice surprise.
The image is transferred onto the piece not decoupaged. This dresser is still available at "The Ole Country Crow Antiques" in Vivian, LA.
Here's a little end table I refinished for a client to match her painted bed.
Another cute little occasional table.
I've been doing more small pieces as my shoulder heals.
We recently had some remodeling done and I transformed a few things in my home to match. This is my 1980's hutch that I added appliques to the doors and painted it with Old White and Paris Gray. I then antiqued it with a black metallic glaze to give it a soft sheen. I love how it turned out!
In my master bedroom I added an antique, brass chandelier that I painted Louis Blue. I also added some vintage shutters and decorated an old window above the bed.
The design in the window was done with wall appliques. They match my bedding.
Now I'm considering painting my sleigh bed. Should I or shouldn't I? :-)
Finally, I added trim to match what I had done on the end of the bar (remember? No? Go here) to the back of it. I also added some of my tin ceiling tiles to the back of the bar. I then antiqued it with a black glaze, to bring out the details and age it, and sealed it with a clear sealer.
Well that is what I have been up too this year. I hope you had a wonderful year and completed all the projects that you wanted to complete.
All of my best wishes for you and your families for the coming Holidays.
