Hum . . . What's the definition of a collection? I'm not sure, but here's a few pieces that I painted a soft green color. There's a set of wooden shutters to match, but they're giving me grief on one of the hinges, so they're in time out right now.
Ok, so I know I haven't posted any new pieces this week. But there's A LOT coming in the next day or so. No pics yet since everything is only quasi finished . . . but here's an idea of what to look for this week:
Momma rocker & matching little kids rocker Antique Folding rocking chair Side tables Couch table Awesome long dresser with mirror & coordinating side tables
After much understudy I think I have achieved acceptable paint booth skills. My first two pieces are complete and here is a sampling of what I am working on. Neither of the tables have been claimed yet either. Please excuse my wonderful photography skills too. :)
Okay not as cool as history, but this is the piece that started it all and created PIMH. This Moody Blue dresser is solid pine and I (her DH?) bought it thinking I could make it all boyish for my boy's room. Yea, didn't work. So in swoops my lovely and talented wife and this is how she resurrected my disaster. The rest is, well, history. We just upcycled a new to us bed for our oldest boy and it had built in drawers and there really isn't room for this anymore. The dresser is in the store today.
Jessica has left town for the week so her "DH", which I thought meant Designated Hitter has hijacked the blog and the store. As her last post states, she's not responsible for what happens while she's gone. :) So my first two projects of the week are this amazing Pennsylvannia House table with two leafs and four matching "chunky chairs" and an old phone table/sitting chair. I am even reupholstering the seat. That's right, her DH. The fabric isn't really attached yet so colors and fabric options are still available. The table is also available for painting your favorite shade of wonderful. Did I just say that? If interested in either piece please call 329-8057 this week.
So, while my hubby had the kids away for the week I decided to use Sunday to redo my bedroom.
First Disclaimer: My paint gun and I have a long and complicated relationship. I know just how far I can push the little sucker. Please don't go and try to paint your furniture in your bedroom with paint gun unless you know exactly what your over spray range is!! I don't want to hear about someone painting their carpet burnt umber. ;p
So here's the Before pic
As I've told many of you I don't really decorate my own room since my kids destroy EVERYTHING. So I figure if I don't have a house I'm trying to keep perfect, I won't get mad when they mess it up!!
So before pic: a lot of boring mid-brown wood stuff.
Tarping, Taping, Priming
Up goes the blue!
I'm sorta an "it's easier to get forgiveness than permission" sort of gal. So I didn't consult the hubby on color choice! He'll just have to like it.
Spraying Accessories with bronzed black color
And a few accessories to decorate. Please note the little girl figurine by the wreath. With her head.
This is round one of decorating. Next on the list is a new fancy bedpost--the foot painted ivory and the headboard upholstered with ivory velvet type fabric.
And 24 hours after my children get home . . . Head missing. Oh, Yeah! That's why I had been storing her away since my mom gave one each to the twins when they were 6 months old. And that is why I don't bother to decorate my house. Any guesses how often I have to strip the couch covers off and wash them . . . ;)
