Gorgeous Chest

I bought this Chest two weeks ago, when I saw it immediately decide to get it!


The design, the quality, the size, the drawers, the hardware......

After a good sanding, and other sanding, the piece was ready to paint.

I used Antique White from Olympic for the body, but for the beautiful doors and drawers an elegant color from Benjamin Moore...


Keeping the original hardware! Beautiful Bronze...
Two coats of Minwax Natural color finishing wax for protection

Hope you fall in love with it!
Thankful! Jacqueline

Featured @ Elizabeth & Co.

When the idea to sell my creations started to pop into my head, I wrote a letter to Sharon from Elizabeth & Co.
 asking for advices, explaining my doubts.....

She got back with a beautiful letter, encouraging me to start the business and sharing her experience with me! Many advices and good wishes....

The Pretty Chair

I had this chair in my storage forever.....
* Hand carved detail *
* Beautiful Curves and Legs *
* Large and Comfortable seat *
* Stylish *

This is a Before picture!

And After....

Chalk Paint Antique White with details in Yellow.
An important distress to show the wonderful carving work!
Two coats of Minwax Natural for protection.

I had the idea to make a set of two cushions, so you have the chance to combine other neutral color seat with them, or if set up the chair in a bedroom you can display the cushions on your bed too! The cushions are down filled.
I bought the fabric at Joan Fabrics which is beautiful, great quality, has a Chenille finish and shows vibrant colors!

I love the set! Looks young and stylish at the same time!
Hope you fall in Love with it....
Thankful! Jacqueline
