Thursday Happenings...


Just some tidbits, before I head out the door to my non-airconditioned studio to do some sweaty painting :) 

"Before" of an armoire I painted this week:

Im off to paint some more furniture at the studio, and a canvas. 

I did this painting for my house:

at Paris on Ponce.  I found the PERFECT settee for my living room this week, and didn't buy it. When I called them to see if it was still there two hours later - no, it was gone. REGRET, people. So annoying. The search continues! In other news, I think the sofa will be here soon, and my custom sofa table is on it's way tonight - woo!

  1. Did you get the rug from DeRigeur Vintage at Paris on Ponce? That's the guy that over dyed my rug and he sells his stuff there. I love old-new rugs! You just can't beat the quality of a good handmade carpet.

    1. I'm not sure which vendor it was! They had so many pretty ones, I loved them all. The tag was removed for me, before I took it home. I do love it, though.

  2. Kristen,
    I am stumbling upon your website for the first time and this cabinet redo is the exact look I have been searching for! I am redoing a dresser I found and wanted a good balance of clean but distressed :) Not sure if you typically reveal your paint colors, but in case you do, would you mind if I ask what paint/color you used for this look? Is the distress look part of the original color showing through? It's really nice!
