No. 28 belongs to the beau­ti­ful, 6-year old Bri­anna! Fresh­ened up in pale pink to match the lovely No. 26 twins.…

I have to tell you, though.…my 3 YEAR OLD has already put in her request for a pink bed. Pretty nor­mal for a girl, right?
WRONG. She has sifted through my paint swatches her­self and selected a shade of pink on her own. Then pro­ceeded to select a green for her armoire. The scary part? They are both great col­ors and would actu­ally look really good with her room. HOLY COW. WHAT. HAVE. I. CREATED?

      Thank you!! As for the color, any of our per­sonal projects and home stuff we are happy to share but we keep a hand­ful of our fav col­ors as our 508 “secret sauce”. This one in par­tic­u­lar barely looked pink until it was applied to the piece…so go lighter than you think! I always exper­i­ment small– paint a frame or a can­dle­stick to see how it looks on wood. Then go for it!

    So glad to find you by way of Shaunna. Love the fur­ni­ture you have painted. I paint fur­ni­ture, too. Prob­lem is I paint over pieces in my house because I don’t have a place to sell any yet. Didn’t even know I loved to do this until blogging.

  •  Oh, my good­ness. This is sim­ply gor­geous! So glad to have found you via Shaunna.

    LOVE this!! Do you use a gloss in your paints? or keep it flat?

       Thanks! I use Satin most of the time and use a matte or satin clear coat (either wax or polycrylic)


It’s about renovation, furniture, inspiration, lots of paint and our ever-present taste for things renewed. read more...
