Shabby chic chairs is what I envisioned for these chairs while they where sitting around in my workshop. I was actually stumbling over them for the last couple of months. I’ve had an array for different fabrics on hand and couldn’t make up my mind as to what fabric to reupholster them in. Another reason […]
Love this small hutch that I painted with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. I found it in Simcoe from a mother/daughter team that were renovating mom’s house. I had never been to Simcoe and honestly thought it was much smaller than it actually was. Simcoe has these stately homes, beautiful gardens along the main road and […]
I found this great dresser in Ancaster from a lady named Jen. I decided then and there to name this cabinet “Jennifer”.

This is a lovely painted piece of furniture that I’ve named Georgia. This cabinet certainly was “On My Mind”. I couldn’t stop thinking about it. I was so inspired to get it started that I thoroughly cleaned it and painted two coats of the Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in about 4 hours.
