Le' Pre'miere Sea of White......

The "paint fest" continues as I ready for the second
Le' Pre'miere Quarterly Showcase Sale on
June 25th.....

My backyard is full to the brim with pieces of antique and vintage
furniture in various states of completion.

 I feel certain all the mammals will be grateful when all is moved
To the Shoppe as it is slowing down their chasing squirrels......


 But there are also pieces at the Shoppe that are receiving a makeover
For the upcoming event.
This wonderful old china cabinet had it's last chance to be sold in it's original state.

 (Who says I don't save a buck whenever I can?)
 Oops paint at Home Depot is a life saver.....
 I use a dry brush technique so it is easier to distress.....



It takes about  two or three coats, but I like it better than thick primer.

 You put it on, and "knock" a little bit of it off.....

 And the same technique with these antique trunks......

And just a little funky something I'm working on.
The insides to an antique wall clock......
Great as a photo holder...

Thanks for stopping by today,
You know I love it when you come.
AND
If you visit and choose to follow,
Please know I always follow back :)

Today I'm linking with Kathleen's White Wednesday
and a new link party called
Alchemy Fine Living

  1. Hi Jana, I am taking a break from embroidering to read blogs tonight. I enjoyed your post tonight and I truly am old fashioned. I love the antique look and love seeing what other people do to repurpose an item. Your cabinet looks good. Thanks for becoming one of my followers and leaving a comment. I so enjoy them. Have a great day. Your new Missouri Friend.
