handpainted antique tables

These tables have some story. These are from someone that has been a customer for such a long time that she is more like a friend. These were a relatives and they had been in a house fire. They were still in great condition and structurally sound just dirty. We painted them an olive green with a gold edge. They are not available in the store but we do have other tables and pieces this color. Please check the website.

Antique handpainted dresser

Look at this beautiful piece. A customer bought this at a resale shop. What a grab!!!! It had the attached mirror also. She really has an eye. She has been creating a vintage "princess room" for her daughter. We changed out the mirror and she also wanted the glass knobs I love how this looks against the pink wall. The trim in the room is white also. Really striking!!

Handpainted vintage table

We did this table that someone brought in from a relatives house. Needed a table to match the theme in the current babys room. It was for a boy--so no flowers!! We did A B C's down the side to go with his bedding. I think it is real cute. We do not have this table in the store, it was a private job. Please go to our website to see what we do have

Handpainted vintage furniture table

This is a great table that we did for someone for their beach house. They brought it in and wanted it lighter and brighter so that it would be appropriate by the beach. I love this soft blue.

This is not available in our store. But--we can paint a table for you in this color. Please check what we do have in our store by linking to the website.

Handpainted vintage furniture desk

This is a sturdy, vintage desk and chair that we did for a teacher. She wanted it a neutral color and no flowers but did pick out some vines. We then covered the seat in Laura Ashley toille. We painted the original hardware antique gold. Nice combination. This was a private job. We do have other desks available on the website. Please check

Painted Childs Chair

We did this for a customer. It was her daughter's chair who was now having a baby and wanted it re-done for the new grand child. We did this jungle theme to match the new room. This theme "the rainforest" is very popular right now. This chair is not available in the store but was a private job. To see what is available in the store, visit the website

Handpainted Vintage Dresser

What a
I had a customer
that needed a certain
size dresser. I had
found a couple different ones for her but they did not work. Then she happened on this one. The depth of the drawers was important. We painted it white and did the flowers to match her new bedspread. We then
changed out to glass handles. She really wanted them. Had seen them before and loved the look. I can not believe the total difference in this piece. Word of caution: If you buy something with knots it needs special treatment. Better to buy clear wood. This piece belonged to one of our customers and is not available in the store.

Handpainted Student Desks

Did these old student desks for a school fundraiser. These were old desks from their kindergarten room. I painted one for a boy and one for a girl and they raffled them off. Later on I painted the name on the desk for the winner. I do not have desks like these in the store but I am hoping to find some. I had them last Christmas. I do have some regular sized desks. Please click on our website to see what is available.

Handpainted Vintage Sideboard

A customer brought in this great old sturdy maple breakfront. Has so many uses. We did a black top and then added a brown and black stain to cream paint. They were going to choose hardware later on. This piece is not available in the store but please check out website to see what is available.
