I have been trying to finish some projects here!
It is so annoying when you have something UNFINISHED staring at you, right???
Ok, so I have this little chest of drawers that has been bugging me. I love, love this "end table" for lack of a better word to describe it.
But it is too high to be in the middle of the chairs where it is. I have changed the table between these chairs a couple of times, but put this one there until I sell it. Yes, I decided to let it go... I posted it on Craigslist but so far no bite!
A friend suggested I distressed a bit more. I did it, and also I coated with dark wax to finish.
I am going to post it again today! I already have another tiny table lined up to take its place.
I am still not convinced those chairs should remain white...
Also, remember the "New Trunk" I got from a friend?
Another friend came over and LOVED IT. She said she wanted to buy it, and asked me to paint off-white. I used ASCP Old White. Finished it with clear wax.
Soon it will be filled with my friend's stuff! This is SO HEAVY and also big inside!
My friend loved the Hope Chest, and my son helped me deliver it yesterday!!!! So this was the first piece I actually made for a client!!!!
I also remembered to buy tulips and put in the little milk glass vase in my guest room...
you've been busy
i love the little table
and the hope chest
and thanks for stopping by
I linked up to your party, finally!
Have a great weekend!
I love the little end table! If you had 2 and were in Idaho, I would snatch them up! Thanks for stopping by!ReplyDelete
Thank you so much, Trisha!Delete
I also love that table, I have had it for many years!
I just find it is a little too high for that spot, and all the other spots in the house are taken, LOL!
Thank you so much for coming over!
i so love everything white, so i can completely relate to your way of decoration! L0) thank you for linking it up at our party atReplyDelete
Thank you so much for coming over!
I know, sometimes I think I am so boring, but the white soothes me... My bedroom is all white and I feel completely relaxed there!
I am so glad you like it, too!
Have a great weekend!
Hooray for your first sale. I'm sure someone will snap up your little table soon. :)ReplyDelete
Thank you!!! This blogger life is so interesting, I LOVE that you took the time to encourage me! Funny how we become real friends without having met each other!
How is your health, did you get those test results? I am going to your blog to check!
LOve the trunk, great job! My girls have hope chests, each from their Grandmother who passed away, and one is shaped just like that....ReplyDelete
The little chest of drawers will sell....I have had to develop patience in selling....things I think should sell really fast don't....I have started consigning them with a little shop....
Thank you so much for the encouragement, Nancy!Delete
Yes, I imagine we need patience selling. I have a friend that says it is like that, some stuff lots of people will call, and some things take weeks.I started this blog and also refinishing furniture just for myself, but have been encouraged to start a business. So it will be trial and error!
I do think the best is to put in little shops as people that like that kind of furniture will go there. I will keep you posted! Cheers!
Congrats on your first sale! I'm sure your friend will enjoy her hope chest.ReplyDelete
