A Quick Recap… the Lost Files

Ugh.. well it’s muggy and hot here in Virginia, which is so much fun when you are trying to paint outside! On a personal note my youngest daughter just graduated from 5th grade! As I was sitting in the audience I heard a lady tell her hubby how glad she was brought her tissues… I thought “what a sap”… I had no idea that I would get so emotional and have to work hard to hold back those tears! Seriously you just never know what is going to get to you I guess! Last day of school for her is today… YAY!

Well I think I might have mentioned that I had finished some pieces before Lucketts but I hadn’t had time to write a post on them yet… well here they are! I only had maybe one photo of each piece because I was rushing around like a mad woman and forgetting things too!

I had this set of French armchairs, I had already recovered 2 of them (you can check them out here)

I cannot begin to tell you how much I LOVED these chairs! Very feminine and hip, the color looks fuchsia because it is a crappy cell phone pick, it was really more hot pink!!

And the FABULOUS coordinating back! I hope the young lady who bought these didn’t upset her fiancé too much Winking smile

This was an awesome buffet with a quartz top… super heavy… SO didn’t want to have to bring this home!

We painted it up in Dustin Gulf Green CeCe Caldwell paint. No picture of the inside but I painted the drawer fronts Old White and added label holders to them… they were very cute! The lady who bought this was jumping up and down with her mom when they spotted it, I’m guessing it was perfect for her?!

This used to be our buffet, I loved it for about 12 years and then I wanted needed something “new”…

This is the best picture I could find! I painted it in Pittsburg Gray CeCe Caldwell paint… yummy! The couple who bought it were so happy it would fit in their car so they could take it home! I’m glad it will find a new home to be loved in!

These are nice right? Well… cane was in excellent condition, they had nice lines and it was a pair…

I spray primed them white then sprayed them Rustoleum Heirloom White. Made new covers for the seats… BAM! instant update!

Great vintage washstand, crappy old shelf liner…

One coat of Old White, heavy distressing, top coated it with Watco Danish Oil in Dark Walnut and got this result… I will definitely try that process again! The lady who bought this had the CUTEST baby… I hope she will love this for many years to come!

Cute little bookcase, quick update with French Linen and Old White Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. I just loved the details on this piece… I really wanted to keep it!

New construction table, painted with some Oops paint in grey, used Valspar black for the stencil. This was going to be used as a desk for some lucky kid! I think he must have a lot of homework Surprised smile

Last but not least the birdcage chandelier… basically I bought a birdcage and chandelier at auction (separately), sprayed the brass chandelier black, the birdcage silver, drilled holes in the chandelier and added some bling… done! A cute couple bought it for their foyer, how fun is that!

Hope you enjoyed my random pieces!

Until next time!

  1. What a wild, wonderful update! I’m still really bummed that I couldn’t be your neighbor at Lucketts … otherwise I would have already seen how great all this stuff looked in person. You’re the Energizer Bunny, Susan!

  2. I absolutely love French chairs and script, and you combined the two beautifully. I love older furniture updated for new uses and the blue chest is incredible – honestly it looked old and worn out and now it looks fresh, young and hip. You do amazing work.
    Thanks, Patty

  4. You have a wonderful eye! I too play with furniture., it is a fantastic hobby. I especially love it when someone buys one of my creations. It is wonderful to save something that many see as junk. Your color selections are wonderful.
