Did someone say vintage!?!?



Painted Furniture

I found this little end table for $5.00 at a yard sale.

It didn’t bother me a bit that some of the wood was broken off.  Knowing my impatient self there was no way I was going to try to fix the missing wood piece.  I knew a little paint would cover it up plus the missing wood piece would just add a little character! Painted Furniture

While strolling along aimlessly in Lowe’s the other day, I found this beautiful color already mixed up!  Ohhh already mixed up and ready to go and no mix the paint lines!?!?  Did I mention I’m a tad impatient!?

Painted Furniture

I’m such a sucker for paint names.  My dining room paint color was chosen based solely on the name!!!  Vintage blue.  Yep put vintage in front of anything and it becomes very appealing to me!!

Painted Furniture

Two coats of paint, a little distressing, and some antiquing glaze.

Painted Furniture Another piece I was going to take to 32 Flavors Boutique or Sanctuary of Davidson but have decided to keep!  Apparently I needed some furniture in my home!!  Seems like lately I have been making and creating more for myself and friends then to sell.  Totally puts the passion back in it when you do it for yourself or for someone you love.

    Awesome find for $5 and I LOVE the blue! I would have probably had to keep it too!

    That piece had the right bones they say to look for. The shape is just darling. And that antiqued blue! Oooo! So pretty! My hubby gets annoyed with me when I want to keep things, “can’t make money when you keep it”, but sometimes we just have to. For awhile, anyway.

      Exactly Wanda! For awhile anyway!!! I am sure I will be sick of this in a few months and off to the shop it will go! But for now it is in my house and makes me very happy!!

    Hey Angela! How awesome is this!! 5 bucks too!
    You did a great job.
    I love the mirror in the picture, is that fabric on it?
    And the houses – - remind me of Charleston, SC where I grew up.
    All the Best to You.

      I love Charleston!! Just to live in West Ashley! It actually is not a mirror! It is a giant frame I found at the Habitat store and framed an awesome quilt top I found at Goodwill. Takes up almost the whole wall!!

    Wow!! Five dollars! I love the color you chose! I would have kept it too!

    Looks great! and $5 !!! even better! Wish I could find a few $5 pieces. I have got to get busy painting. Finally took the little red dresser today and was able to let it go. I have lots I need to get painted and get to the Red Wagon.

      Hi Jackie! Where is the Red Wagon!? I would so love to see photos of your booth!
      lots and lots of love

    Great job!! I’m a blue-lover too. Hubs would shoot me for saying a Hepplewhite style piece (he refinished real mahogany Hepplewhite back in the day) should be painted. Oh well…………….
    My new blog address is 3christiansthriftyfamily.wordpress.com. Comments left with that address get bumped or at least try to convert to craffty………… Fight coming with WP?

      Thanks Janet for the update! WP can be tricky! Computers and I just don’t get along in general!

    Oh I love these touches of blue! I used glaze years ago before wax was the craze and liked how easy it was to use. I’d become disabled though and never got the poly on…but I’ve had a help for a bit who uses Pledge for thee months now on these pieces and wow! They do sparkle without the rubbing! I do not use Pledge on all my furniture but it works well on my paint/glazed pieces that never got the polyurethane….
    I am amazed at your talent. Your house is so fun. Reminds me of a shop in Santa Barbara…or is it Seattle? Oh well. They are famous and make $ selling your style!!!
    OBTW I wonder what color your table is now?!!

      hahahahaha Gwen!
      Sooooo funny, I was just thinking about that table this morning and how much I am not happy with it! IT is soooooooooooooooooo getting a paint job very soon! I think I am going all white this time! What do you think!?!
      lots of love

      p.s. I alwaysssssssss forget to do poly!

    You have mad painting skills! Love your curtain fabric in the last pic. Do you disclose details about it?

    • angela June 17, 2013 at 10:14 pm #

      Hi Laura!
      I bought the fabric about four years ago from Hancock fabrics! I looked all over them to see if I could find a name of some kind but couldn’t. I am so sorry I couldn’t help you more! I am actually ready to part with these though! If you are interested let me know and we can email about sizes! They are skinny panels!

      • Laura June 18, 2013 at 1:22 pm #

        Hey Angela!
        Yes, I am “totes” interested in your panels! How skinny are your panels? Just email when you get a chance. I am not in a mad curtain rush. Thanks!
