a couple of the 'auction' items are finished and on the floor!

the last auction i went to was a great success!! found lots of cool pieces. i was really excited to get started on them, i sort of had an idea of what i'd do to each of them. the first one i started was a smaller empire scroll chest. it was pretty rough...the veneer was chipping and it was DIRTY! i've had these fantastic orange/cream/gold knobs and have been waiting to use them on the right piece...this was it! the look amazing with the pale grey paint....

its 35w x 20d x 29h. $200

here it is 'before'......beautiful lines...

after!! i love how it turned out! the pale grey was perfect!

and the very cool knobs!!!

and i was also able to finish one of the french deco chairs!!! i decided to do the rocker first. i went online to search for some fabric that was in the deco style, but with a modern twist to it. i found this amazing cream/teal/black fabric. it looks 1930's but with a modern aire to it. gorgeous on the chair!!


the french deco rocker 'before'...with her sad 80's fabric covered seat

and after...the fabric look so great with the french linen colored paint i used!
