Ok FOLKS…We have chosen a beautiful piece of furniture to work on for our first project.

It is a dresser I purchased from an old guy in Doveton, Southeast of Melbourne. He told me it was his parents and that he grew up around this item, but no longer had the room for it in his new house and would not suit the modern theme.

I love the way the grain of the wood shows up on this piece and I believe we can make it even more prominent with some paint. I know it sounds backwards, but you will know what I mean once we are done with it.

I was in “crafty mood” this morning and this is what I did.

I picked up this birdcage in thrift shop last week for a $2.00

Been absent so much lately. Nothing exciting to blog about. But I could tell you about how I’ve been working on our furniture business. We weren’t expecting to get sales so quickly, so we’re very happy. I just wanted to post a project that I did. I bought this Balinese sideboard last year. We’re using this as “tv unit”. I’ve been wanting to paint it but I never get a chance.

So here’s it is…

The sideboard was painted white, then distressed.

Does anyone know someone that can make me a website (with flash)? At an affordable price? If you do please don’t hesitate to email me on ma1n5t@hotmail.com

Hi everyone! Been a long time since I updated my blog. I’ve been busy catching up with all the house chores that I have not been able to complete due to visitors and other leisure activities. Just wanted to post this gorgeous sideboard that I have painted two weeks ago. I love this piece! My plan was to lightly scratch some small areas to create a slight rustic look but I decided to let my husband work out what he wanted to do with it…..This is how it turned in the end and we are both very happy with the outcome, that now we are so attached to this item, that we feel unsure about selling it.

Hi everyone? Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Just wanted to show off my latest finished project. Remember my blog post last week about my big haul of antiques? Well, I managed to finished one yesterday. I painted this gorgeous dining set white then I sanded the corners for that rustic look.

Here’s the picture of the table and the ladder chairs I posted last week.

Hey Everyone, just posting some pictures of bookcase/hutch that I’ve painted last week. I painted it dark grey instead of white. I sanded it a little bit for that rustic look.
