Mrs. Norris Gets A Makeover

Last weekend at a neighborhood garage sale one of the items we bought was this cute little end/ night table.

She was the perfect size and in pretty good shape, except for the sticker on the front. But that did give her a name. I often see other bloggers naming their furniture pieces. Do you?? 

She got a good cleaning and the sticker came off easily using Citra-Solv which I purchased for another project that did not turn out so well. I originally got it to transfer graphics but just ended up with a black blob. The good part is it smells wonderful and it a great all purpose cleaner (My Opinion).

She was then painted Duck Egg by Annie Sloan, distressed and waxed.

By far this was the fastest makeover I have ever done.

The top and shelf area were just lightly sanded, re-stained and sealed with Poly.

I like the contrast with the painted and dark wood.

Her original knobs were used as well.

I love the distressed look and it was the perfect finishing touch for Mrs. Norris.

She is now in her new home at The Coop Antiques in Oviedo.

We are excited for the opportunity to have another booth location.

Please stop by in person and LIKE them on Facebook.

Mrs. Norris would love to go home with you.

Thank for stopping by,

New Shop Space And A Rustic Bench

It has been a busy Summer for us so far but great things are happening! We have finally made to the jump to having a store booth space in a fantastic new store in Rockledge, Florida.

One of the first items we brought there was a bench made from a headboard, a foot-board and old fencing.

The back headboard had a fake wicker center so we just removed it and replaced it with the old fence pieces. The side arms were created from a foot-board cut in half.

We just built a seat from thicker pallet pieces. I stained the center pieces to make them start to look like fence pieces. We just did't have enough of the fence left for the seat.

A little paint and stain then sanding gives it a whole new look.

I did paint the seat center boards grey over the stain then sanded to mimic the fence on the back.

The end posts look pretty good as well.

My NEW shop spot is at Vintage Living Marketplace in Rockledge, Florida.
 It is a great new shop full of Vintage, Shabby Chic, Repurposed, Industrial Decor.

My space has a cool metal wall on one side- awesome for us

Mike had to add a little metal to the bench so these bars took up the hole spaces left from the original foot- board.

This bench looks pretty awesome in our new space.

Thanks for stopping by and if you get to Brevard County Florida
Vintage Living Marketplace is a must stop at destination!!

See you there soon!
