Fantastic Furniture


I wanted to show you some furniture done by my friend Nancy Young
who is a vendor at the same store where I place my furniture.
Nancy does the most unique makeovers and in my opinion is a painting genius.  I
am always in awe of her "out of the box" thinking when she paints a piece.
First I want to show you a simple pine table that I bought at a yard sale
a few weeks ago.  It just sat in my garage because I had no vision for it.
Nancy came along and took it off my hands, for which I was most
grateful because it was blocking me from getting my lawn mower out of the garage.
I don't have a before picture, but here is what Nancy did with it.







Never in my wildest dreams would I have envisioned this simple
pine table to have such a fantastic makeover which such pizazz.
Here is it coupled with some classy French chairs.  Don't they
make the perfect couple?







The pictures don't do the table justice ~ you have to see it in person.
Here is a close-up.







Here is the rest of her space.  She finds the most unique pieces.













And then there is this fantastic accent piece that although quite small,
it really commands attention.






Isn't she sweet?













 
A special thank you to Mary at Boogieboard Cottage for featuring my
vintage writing desk at Masterpiece Monday.

Wow this really is a great painting technique!! I am very shy when it comes to painting things- white is about as bold as I get!

Hope your week is fantastic! Have been without wifi then my computer connection broke so blogging has been a scarcity the past few weeks! Hopefully things are back in order- now just some time!

She is definitely a painting genius. Her pieces are just beautiful. I absolutely love all of the red...farm table is just gorgeous. I'm about to paint 2 pieces black but after seeing the red I might change my mind on one of them! Thanks so much for sharing her work with us.

I love that red cabinet!

If I had a truck and some cash, I swear I would be out to buy the table and chairs!! That is exactly the look I want for my kitchen! I have just purchased a table and chairs from a thrift store. And I think I might have to refinish them like your friend. Would it be possible to find out what color red she used? Red is so finicky!

I have just started on refinishing furniture and hope I can get as good as the two of you someday. I'll be following your blog from now on for good inspiration!!

Have a great weekend!

XoXo,
Kristal
