I couldn't budge this even 2 inches to get a decent photo................but here she is finished
( shadows and all )
My Son and SIL brought it in - I painted it exactly where they put it - and they took it back
( and brought 2 more pieces to be done while they were at it )
The family I painted these pieces for wanted to refresh their daughters former bedrooms - so that the grandchildren could sleep in the same rooms when visiting - with the same furniture as their Mom's had - just updated a little !
I distressed all of the molding to make it look like an old country armoire
and now on to the dresser and end table :)
Life is usually crazy busy around here - but between trying to get ahead with house reno's and outdoor work and furniture - well - these last few weeks have been a little more so - sorry for posting and running but here's me signing off rather abruptly because I have a line I have to cross
Have a wonderful day everyone !

Painted, that piece is so much better. I kind of hesitated at the little dresser and mirror though... they are so incredibility cute and country looking and can't imagine them any better --but, looking forward to seeing what you do with them.ReplyDelete
Lovely as usual!ReplyDelete
Beautiful! How neat that the grandparents are using their daughter's old furniture for their grands now. Love it...:) Have a happy day!ReplyDelete
It looks so much better painted. I know I say that a lot but it's true! I know the feeling of trying to reach a finish line and feeling like I'm in slow motion. Yikes! Try not to overdo, k? I hope you're getting some sunny weather and time to enjoy your pool some.ReplyDelete
You did such a great job! Have you ever tried to make your own chalk paint? I tried it this past weekend and loved the results! I love finding any way to save on DIY's!ReplyDelete
It's gorgeous Suzan. It turned out beautifully and so much nicer than the orangey pine.ReplyDelete
You definitely worked your magic on this piece - a beautiful design.ReplyDelete
I was wondering if I might ask a question and get your professional opinion. Since you deal with the ASCP all the time, do you feel it would be durable enough to use on kitchen cabinets? And if so what would the process be?ReplyDelete
It's gorgeous Suzan, just the right amount of distressing!ReplyDelete
Thanks so much Marie !!!Delete
LOVE!!!! Just LOVE!!!! Another beautiful re love.ReplyDelete
Way to go, Suzan. Such a difference. I am loving pure white on furniture these days. So fresh. Are you using the same for the dresser?ReplyDelete
Hi Teri - thanks so much !Delete
Yes - she wants white on all of them :)
It looks great, Suzan!ReplyDelete
Hi Suze! That piece looks great. Awesome job and the other pieces will be perfect once you work your magic on them. Just back and trying to catch up myself. Love to you- xo DianaReplyDelete

I wouldn't have thanked you for that piece in it's original finish, but I love it now. Maybe not the weight part, but sure love the look!ReplyDelete
Suzan, you knocked it out of the park! SCHWEEET! I know they love the pieces and the armoire looks like a heavy beauty! Fantabulous!!! ~ ChristinaReplyDelete
