done!

well, the blue buffet piece is done! i didn't really get a great shot of it, but at least i can show you what i did...(really time for me to invest in a better camera, you can barely see the distressing on this first shot! argh....)

  4. a- someone tells me that there is one available on craigslist right now, in conyers! just fyi. the style of the piece is "depression era", just incase you want to do a search for it!

    it's really way cuter in person. i'm going to get a photo of it once she moves it into her dining room, where it's going to live. her style is precious, so ican't wait to show it off with the rest of the room!!

  5. Wow! It looks amazing! I actually have a similar buffet, but it's painted in a cream colour. You are inspiring me to paint it blue!

  7. I love this! I couldn't even tell in the before shot that there was scalloping and other details on the front. I'm really digging the color, too!

  8. So whimsical! I can picture this in an enchanted dollhouse.

    Or, you know, my living room. How pretty would that be as your entertainment center?

  9. No words! How sweet it must be to have a job where you make people ooh and ahh and this isn't a baby in sight! Destiny

  10. This is great! I just painted and distressed a whole dining table and six chairs, all inspired by your blog. Now I want to do my side table too. The blue is great as well. Love your work.

  16. This is so gorgeous!

    I wish you could do some DIY instructions for the followers who live thousands of miles away so we could attempt to something similar.I would just have no idea where to start!

  18. Okay, is it just me, or does the finished product have red on it now as well as the blue? That's not the wood coming back through, but a redish paint. How did you do that? Did you paint the red on afterwards?

  19. i think it's just the reddish tint of the stained wood underneath :)

  20. If this was the original way it was finished I would say very nice but...sorry to say I now see a beautiful piece of craftmanship now ruined forever. The original finish looked to be spectacular.
