What is black and white and red all over?

Just finished up this Broyhill console/dresser piece last night! The insides were done with Annie Sloan’s Emperor’s Silk, the body in Old White and the hardware & top in Graphite. When I found this at the ReStore, I was hoping I could salvage the top and re-stain, but it didn’t work out that way.

Hi!

So…camera cord is still MIA. UGH! This means I’m only able to share a brief before & after of a recent flip with ya courtesy of my Instagram – so IG followers, I’m afraid this won’t be anything new.

Funny story: as I was prepping this piece for paint, I just couldn’t stop sneezing and wheezing! The next day my father-in-law points out that I had left the dresser in the barn with all of the cats (I am extremely allergic) so I was basically rubbin’ all up on cat dander. No wonder! FUN!

Charlie in Charge

Long time no post! I’m happy to report that the furniture flipping is going so well! Not only are my pieces selling, but I’m literally having the best. time. ever. doing it. Really, the opportunity gives me an outlet to explore my love for interior design, art, color study, up-cycling and my love of hunting for a good deal.

I’ve taken to naming all of my pieces recently because it helps me to stay on track with the vision that pops into my head when I see a “naked” piece. That said, I’d like you to meet someone very special to me, his name is Charlie. Continue reading “Charlie in Charge”
