Potting bench

So we’ve been busy enjoying our new house, and haven’t been doing a lot of furniture painting this summer. However, Matt did build me a potting bench out of reclaimed wood, complete with a custom hand painted sign. ūüôā

End table

This adorable little end table had the solid maple top refinished in an espresso stain, and the base painted with Folk Art oatmeal chalk paint. Lightly distressed, waxed, and viola!

Nigel’s bedroom set

Nigel had a dated, mismatched bedroom set that wasn’t entirely suitable for a teenage boy. So after painting¬†his bedside table previously, I decided to paint his dressers to match (Aspire endless and inspire). With a new bed set, his room looks much better!

Ezra’s bedroom set

2015-04-18 16.14.15 2015-04-18 16.15.06



My son Ezra spent years beating up on this bedroom set. As long as he promised to stop using the dresser as a backdrop for throwing knives, I agreed to give it an overhaul with ASCP in graphite.

Bedside table for Nigel

This cute little bedside table was given a paint job using Aspire in inspire and endless,¬†then coated with final finish. It now resides in Nigel’s room where I’m quite sure I’ll find it stacked with dishes and laundry. Oh, the joys of being a mom to teenagers.

Ottoman slipcover

2015-02-21 13.35.392015-02-21 13.37.03

This tired old ottoman didn’t fit in to my decor, so I used¬†upholstery¬†fabric to make a slipcover for it. Not only does it update the look, but it’s easy to remove and wash. Spencer was kind enough to make a cameo appearance in the before picture.
