The one thing I like about painting furniture is finding the most amazing pieces. Below are just a few of the pieces that I have picked up to work a little magic on.
I really like the old kitchen buffet’s. There is a certain character that they have that I have yet to see in any newer pieces.
When I spotted this short vanity I had to stop and buy it. It literally goes to just above my knee. These were typical of English and European pieces. I am not sure if the women were are short back then or not but this would make an awesome dressing table for a little girl.
Just look at the detail on the drawers!
The piece was missing the mirror but I had previously purchased an antique mirror that I knew would be the perfect addition to this piece.
And last but certainly not least is the terrific little piece that a friend of mine was selling. An antique washstand. I don’t buy these pieces to necessarily put in my place but I love working on something different. Who knows maybe I will keep a few of these pieces for a while after I finish them and maybe I will sell them.
