Latest works...


Spent a good portion of this week painting these pieces with many coats of paint and sanding.
Highlighted with gold paint and the chair has been reupholstered.

I liked them so much, I decided to keep them for myself. :)

In progress...




You can see the bedroom pieces in their before look.

A while ago, my cousin who is a professional organizer gave me a bunch of furniture from a woman that was downsizing.


 and a dollhouse...


and a box of furniture to make, though, some of it is missing.

With how busy I was this past summer, I think I forgot to share all of this. 


I painted this buffet or console table to have an Asian style to it and it's been distressed to show age.




I don't often venture outside of 1/12th or one inch scale, but I did for this little bed. 
You can see it's before look in the group photo above. Bed measures less than 3" wide.


Painted, sanded, aged, and distressed.


New floral rose print has been combined with two vintage fabrics, one featuring hearts, the other polka dots. Fine vintage and antique trims and lace have been used to embellish the bedding and pillows.



Country, cottage, shabby chic.


Before.


In progress...




 The bench has been embellished with pink, blue, and yellow roses, it's also been distressed. Upholstered with a blue floral and rose pink pleated trim. The pillows are all loose and filled with a material that makes them appear real, along with a folded "quilt." Rag rug is braided from a yard each of the fabrics used.


 I didn't forget about the series for the Denver show, Part II will be coming soon and so will a giveaway.

Stay tuned! :)

    1. Gracias, Rosamargarita! Me alegro de que le gustó la transformación y los espejos de conchas!

      No hay problema para deshacerse de la verificación de la palabra, no tenía ni idea de lo que es un problema que había sido para algunos. : (Feliz de hacerlo, me encanta saber de usted :)!

    1. Thank you so much, Margaret!

      While I was creating the bench, I realized it needed just a little something more and the rug was the best thing to add to it. Glad you liked it. :)
