Restyled Sundays #10 and a Giveaway

OK, I know it is Monday again, but yesterday was a day filled with computer problems. It was taking five minutes to load a single page, so I ran every virus scan and malware I could find. Finally by this morning I had my computer back in working order! Yeah!! I just could not deal with writing a post in slow motion.
Well, enough of the excuses, on to the party.

I loved all of the entries to the party last week and I am so excited to have some new participants as well!

My personal favorite of the week was from Mindy at Pretty in Paint
She painted this hutch with Mermaid (isn't that a cool name for a color) on the inside and white on the outside. Be sure to check out the before!

I also loved all of the links from Angie at Knick of Time Interiors,
but my favorite was the makeover of her new hallway.

Be sure to go to her blog to see the before. What a difference a little paint will make,
 and I love the door at the end.

Kathe With An E share some great vintage finds.

I love these glass cruets and they are so hard to find with the stopper still intact.

There were two great coffee table makeovers

First is this coffee table to ottoman makeover by Jenni at Who Makes Up This Craft

And the second was this very nicely updated coffee table from Chrissy at The Taylor House.

Thanks so much for all of the great posts.

Little Red Chair, Come On Over

This is another one of those posts that only shows the after:(

But, the after is so cute, it is all ok.  This was just a plain wicker childs chair
that I decided to spruce up a little.

Some red gloss paint and a cute little cushion brought it right up to date.
I made  the cushion reversible for a quick change up.

I think this is perfect for Grandma's house.
Check it out at Lone Elm Antiques in Olathe, Ks if you are in the area.

Restyled Sundays #9

Welcome Back! We had just a few entries last week, and they were all great.  Here are a couple of my favorites.

This sweet "Princess Dresser" from Redoux with the beautiful silver leaf accents.

Chelsea from Kiss My Brass has some great vintage finds including this adorable Copper Pony!

I also have to share some of my own vintage finds this week. I have had very little time to go thrifting, but as I was working on my new booth at Sentimental Journey ( pics to come soon), I found a booth with 70% off.
Who can resist that? So here are a few of the things I found.

A cute little wire chicken basket.

Three different style thread spools and a vintage potato masher.

A nice iron candle holder ( please ignore the lovely candle)

This enamel ware mixing bowl.

An old ironstone soapdish.

This large yellow tin with a powder sifter top.

And finally a set of enamel ware serving spoons.
I also found an amazing set of spice containers I will show you soon!

A Sweet Pink Vanity

A few months ago I bought this adorable desk/ vanity from another dealer who was clearancing it out.  It almost seemed a sin to paint over this beautiful maple, but it had so much potential if I did.

The two features I fell in love with on this piece, were the knobs and the twisted trim.
 It always amazes me how much a few little details can really make a piece.

So, here is the finished product. I wanted the palest pink I could find, and yet I already had
so many pinks that I hated to go buy another one. With enough white paint
added in I was able to mix my own and come up with the perfect shade.

Some mild distressing to give it that vintage look.

I really love the style of the mirror.

How perfect would this look in a girls room?
If you live in Kansas City, check it out at Lone Elm Antique Mall in Olathe.

Stand Tall Pretty Plantstand

I really have been working on alot of projects, but haven't had much time to post lately.
So here is one of those quick, check it off my list kinda projects.
I started with  this $5.00 wooden plant stand. It needed a little sanding and some glue.
After that I used Rustoleum Colonial White spray paint. It is really a great off white color.

Some light distressing and a coat of Minwax and it is simply beautiful.
Best of all, it is finished and for sale at Lone Elm Antique Mall!
