Catching up...

I have been so busy painting that I haven't had a chance to catch up this blog with some of my before & afters.

The Desk:
I bought this desk to refinish for the Girls Camp fundraiser and auction I was in charge of to donate and hopefully raise some money for the girls to go to camp. I painted it a soft white, distressed it & glazed it. Luckily, one of the adorable girls going to camp wanted it & bought it!


After (all set up in her super cute room!):The Secretary:
My mom & I found this secretary on Craigslist for a pretty good deal. Luckily, it was in great shape & didn't need any extra work! I painted it the same white I painted the above desk then distressed it. I loved it & apparently someone else did because it didn't last long in the shop.



The Vintage Cupboard:
This awesome piece my mom & I found at a garage sale last year & it was in rough shape. It had a nasty linoleum top that was chipped and it needed some repairs to the bottom part, but after a good fixing by my mom & dad it turned out AMAZING! I love it!


After: My dad took off all of the linoleum then my mom stained the wood a gorgeous dark brown. She also repainted it and distressed it!

Gosh...I would have loved all three of them. They are beautiful.
