A Fresh New Look


Here she is after her makeover.

A sweet vanity/desk from the past now has the look that works for today.

Great quality construction that includes a completely finished back.

You can’t find anything like this at a big box store.

Here’s what she looked like before she got a fresh coat of paint, some snazzy fabric covered drawers and a new black color on her great vintage hardware.



Also wanted to show you this great little lamp upscale project.

It started as a typical thrift store wood base lamp. It was painted, distressed, and a shade was covered in fabric and some trim for a new look.

Added touches were an old non working pocket watch detail and some fun copper metallic paint swirled on the inside of the shade.

This is definitely a Time Worn Series inspired piece.


The glow with the light on is just wonderful.


There is so much satisfaction in giving old pieces a new beginning.

Linking up to Savvy Southern Style's "Wow Us Wednesday.

Hope all my blog friends out there are having a good week so far.
