Ive posted some pics of some furniture that I designed and painted a couple of years ago. The dresser above was a steal for 10$ at a local thrift market. It was dovetailed and beautifully made, so of course I just had to spruce it up and add some vintage hardware :)
I took off almost a year from my Design work and threw myself into hand painted furniture. I bought every book on the market to teach myself after I had finished one very simple piece for a client. It started with a client saying, "find me a soft pink dresser for my daughter", and after going through tons of resources, they were all too loud or too big or not sophisticated enough for her taste. So, I figured id give it shot ;) and a year later and hundreds of pieces later, lol, I was having shows of my own and my designs were keeping me up at night....my entire home turned into a studio and I couldn't keep up ;)
soooo, this little branch of my business went to the back burner .......My trip recently ( to get my Fall clothes down, lol, ) to my attic revealed many unfinished pieces yet to be painted ;) so here I am, planning to paint again this weekend, hope im not too rusty!! ;) I will post before and after photos as soon as I'm finished!
I did some small pieces too, these are fun to have in the kitchen , just little bits of color to pop against the kitchen floor ;) They just add a drop of whimsy ;) I only kept one though, I have pictures of it in lots of my kitchen photos and its in the background of this pic ;) Melanie is 13 and still sits on it for dinner ;) lol
Have a great Fall weekend !! ~ Hugs ~ Cynthia
