Vintage Desk in Old Ochre


I love this style of desk and snatch them up from thrift stores whenever I find them. The style is known as either a twin pedestal or knee hole desk. I especially love the ones with rope trim.

Chifferobe


I think this chifferobe dates back to the early 1900's. Possibly the 1920's or 1930's era. Based on the design I believe it would have been termed a "gentlemen's chifferobe". With the advent of larger homes with more storage space the chifferobe seems to have gone out of style. But let me tell you if I find one in a thrift store you better believe I will be all over it.

New Projects: China Cabinet, Table, and Desk



I've been out shopping at every opportunity looking for new inventory. Some trips were more successful than others. Three of my favorite finds were a china cabinet, mid-century table, and a 1960's desk.

Antique Rocking Chair Painted in Country Grey


I can't seem to resist a rocking chair. Especially one as lovely as this. I wish you could stop by and take it for a test drive, but if not then you'll just have to take my word for it that it is oh-so-comfortable.

Are you looking for a way to dress up your holiday table? Today I am sharing a quick and easy method to create a pip berry wreath. I plan to use this wreath as a centerpiece for my holiday table, but you can hang it on a wall or door instead.

November Field Trip at the Lebanon Peddler's Mall


I took the bookcase that I finished to my booth at the Lebanon Peddler's Mall. I'm still working on building my inventory back up, but I took a few shots of my booth that I am sharing with you. No it's not perfect, but if I wait for perfection there won't be any photos, ha ha. Always a work in progress!

Crisp and Clean and No More Green!




The project I am sharing with you today is a revamped 1960's bookcase. It's made of solid wood and looks to have been painted in what I call a "1970's green". I've seen a lot of furniture in thrift store painted in this color and it reminds me of a cedar chest from my childhood that was painted in a similar shade of green.
