{Antique Dressing Table}

Before.  This piece was already painted white but it was dinged up, dirty, and yellowing in places.  It needed a little love.





After.  I decided this piece was to remain white, (it whispered it to me).  There she is after a fresh coat of paint standing proud!




A true antique. I can't help myself but to wonder what it's story is. Where it's been, how many refections it's seen, and who's dirty drawers it's carried. haha.



I love this giant scalloped framed mirror.  Gorgeous. 



This piece is sold.

  9. Hi Julie, I was sure I left you a comment earlier but I can't see it...anyway sorry if you got it twice! Your furniture makeovers are awesome, thanks so much for letting me find you by commenting on my blog :) I wanted to tell you that I love your blog design but I notice that 'refinish' is spelt wrong in your header. Hopefully an easy fix!
