Hutch in my FAVORITE color!

Once you've been around here for a while you will see a pattern.  I love the color blue....all shades--I don't discriminate!  Light aqua all the way to dark teal...you will see many pieces in this color.  I'm warning you now. 

I found this piece at one of my favorite places--Goodwill!  It was a "Blue Tag Special"-50% off!  I ended up paying $19.00 for this solid wood hutch.  It had 3 different types of handles--Three of them were eagles--yes, like the bird.  Who does that??? 

A steal at $19.00!
Love the detail






















































































































I gave her a light sand and then primed her.  She received two coats of Rustoleum Spray Paint in Aqua.  The same color as my sisters side tables and dressers .  I love the coverage that spray paint gives.  If you haven't tried spray paint dont be afraid!  Just keep spraying in a continuous motion side to side.  Start and end OFF of the piece. 

Sometimes I just paint the old hardware to give it a new life, but these needed to be changed.  I opted for these crystal knobs from Home Depot.




 The square white plates are from Crate & Barrel and the awesome funky plates were a wedding gift from a great friend.  They are Villeroy & Boch and I adore them!!  I love the color, shape and everything about them.  I picked up the blue plate at a student pottery sale at Penn. 

 Those beautiful hydrangea's are my valentines flowers.  Simple and beautiful!  Love it!

 My lovely neighbor gave us this beautiful handmade bowl as a wedding gift.  I absolutely love it and its one of our favorite gifts. 


My hubs picked up this deer skull at an antique store.  I like the look, but I still won't pick it up...I make him move it and clean it.

Furniture for my sister!

My sister and her hubby bought a house this past summer.  They spent the entire summer renovating and making it amazing!! They did a fabulous job and everything looks so great.  I'll be posting bits and pieces of the actual renovation later, but for now, here are just a couple of pieces I did just for them.

You all know that when you buy a house, especially a huge house like my sis and bro did everyone wants to donate all of their old stuff to you, and you gladly accept, right?  Here is a pic of the side table in their master bedroom before....


Here is the after!  I love this color!  It's Rustoleum Spray Paint in Aqua.  I also did a hutch of my own in this color and I will post about it soon.





This is a pic of the long dresser that matches---I can't find the before picutre, but you can imagine, right?



What do you think?? Not bad for free, right??

Lamp Re-Vamp!

We picked up this little beauty at an antique store last year.  She has been living in our living room, but there was always something missing/off about it.  I always wanted to replace the lampshade, but was hesitant to paint her since she is an antique, but...out came the paint!

Here is a picture of her before...



And after...



I painted her with a gloss white spray paint from Rustoleum.  I found the lampshade at Target for on sale for $15.00.  



I love having unique and even weird pieces in my space.  It adds character, its nice to look at and is always a conversation piece!
