before and after

i recently refinished some baby furniture for a client. this furniture was purchased from a friend. since a girl is on the way, we wanted an antique white finish to replace the heavy espresso finish.


and after

i love the detail work in this furniture. the distressed finish allows the beautiful espresso undertones to peek through...
remember the original hardware? i loved the brassy look, but wanted crystal to capture a bit more feminine flare. look what i found. crystal with the same brassy finish...perfect!
hope everyone has a great week!

daily candy and abby's room

do you guys read daily candy? you totally should. it's full of good linde browning design!! check out the article they did on my biz here.

on another note, i painted baby abby's (not to be confused with abbe...abbe has babies, but is not a baby. you get the idea) name on the wall in her room recently.

before, missing a sweet custom painted name
after, now isn't that sweet. i pulled all of the colors from her bedding. they came together juuust right.
i'm no taylor, but at least these pictures aren't off of my iphone.
my camera died after two pics *sigh*. so that will have to do for now.

Baby Isaac

i think i might try to blog a little more of my week to week projects. i bought a little point and shoot camera, so this will be the last round of my terrible iphone pics.

last week, i painted baby isaac's name in his room. his mama and daddy were inspired by some other rooms that i have done and tackled the stripe detail on their own. i came in behind them and added the name detail. there is something about seeing the name on the wall that makes things real, and sweet, and special (hint, click on the colored words).

don't forget, by using these letters, you will always have a special piece of baby's first room. simply pull this three dimensional letter off the wall and put it in a shadow box with a piece of fabric from baby's bedding. doesn't get much sweeter.a hall full of shadow boxes, with a swatch of baby bedding and a first initial, sounds pretty sweet to me.
i sure had fun chatting with rowena and helping create a special space for baby isaac.
