Finished Projects

I've been crazy busy the past few weeks with shows, happy time with my kids, and moving. However, I did manage to put the finishing touches on a few projects this morning and have photos to share. All three pieces are painted my favorite shade of green!

First, maple drop-leaf table. Wish I had some before pictures of this one! It took a lot of glueing, clamping, sanding, scrubbing...but in the end it turned out beautiful. I love the oval shape...might have to keep this one!

Next, I originally planned to keep this oak bookcase in its original finish, but it just didn't clean up like I hoped. I'm happy with the end result, though. Love the moulding details.

Last, but not least, my favorite. Picked up this dresser at a charity yard sale a few weeks ago. After a coat of green paint I covered the drawer fronts in legder pages from 1849. Love the script and color of the old ink. Added some vintage glass knobs and it's perfect.

I'll be taking all three pieces over to the Spaulding Cooperage later this week. Stop by and take a look!

Have a happy day,


  1. Love how these pieces look together on my screen. Wouldn't they make a lovely foundation for someone creating a beautiful at-home library. You do nice work girl!
