We did this great, good quality set for a couple who needed furniture for their shore house and wanted to repurpose what they had. They totally changed the color to make it lighter to fit in by the shore. When we got there, the color scheme was beautiful. Soft colors on the walls, painted wood floors and this light furniture with plenty of carvings. Nice choice.

Purchased this beautiful dresser with a harp stand mirror. The hardware was a tough one. I like the glass knobs we put on. We painted it a very pale pink. It almost looks white until you put something white next to it and then you realize it is pink. I then accented it in places with ivory. All of a sudden I am into two tone. It is okay as long as I stay inspired and interested. When you have painted as long as I have you need to find something to keep your interest or you fall in a rut.
I purchased this table. Did not like the hardware! I also saw that the trim on the drawers needed to be knocked off because it was beyond repair. I painted it a pale blue and put on beautiful white glass handles that I bet I bought about 4 or 5 years ago and I was waiting for the right piece to put them on. I thought that roses just did not fit this piece since it is very retro looking. From the 1950s. I notice that my antique dealer friends are calling this style "mid century". Who would've thought?

Found this great magazine table. I haven't seen many lately. They are slowly disappearing. I think the bottom would be great for books, dvds, cds, maybe even magazines. Use your imagination. Painted this a creamy white and then added handpainted roses in burgundy and golden yellow. www.handpaintedbycookie.com
