Antiqued Linen …

7

November 9, 2014 by Terry

This past two weeks have been a blurr!  I have been multitasking my multitasking!!! … okay, so that’s just how I feel … you know how sometimes things feel bigger than they are…  :0)

One of my projects last week was working on finishing this lovely little antique china cabinet.  I got so excited about getting started on it that I totally forgot the before pictures.  I didn’t even bring it in the house for a photo shoot … straight to my booth she went (hence the bad pics!).

Here she is all dolled up in Linen Milk Paint and finished in dark antiquing wax.  She has just a slight distressing as I didn’t want to take away from all her lovely detail.

Isn’t she fancy with the scroll work on the glass door and the turned legs? Oh, and the nice little scalloped skirt!

IMG_6005IMG_6006I thought about filling in the detail on top with another color but I think that may have made her look a little busy with the scroll work and distressing, sometimes less is more…

IMG_6004Inside she has two shelves that I decided to leave original to give it some contrast. It picks up the color of the distressed parts as well and brings out the color of the antiquing wax.

IMG_6002She is so smooth to touch!  These pictures do not even do her justice, she’s much prettier in person.  I like that this cabinet is low profile and is of a smaller scale which makes her perfect for smaller spaces … she could go any where!  I could even see her in a bathroom holding extra towels and pretty smelling soaps!

I rarely use things the way they were meant to be used lol!  Just because it was made for china doesn’t mean it HAS to be used for china :0)

If you’d like to see her in person, she is in my booth at the Old Creamery!

Smiles!

  2. I lost you! I don’t know what happened but it dawned on me today that I hadn’t seen any posts from you lately. When I checked my “blogs I follow” column, you were no where to be seen! Horrors! I’m hoping you didn’t even notice 😀 so now I play catch up with your posts…

Thank you so much Larissa @prodigalpieces for tagging me in today's #trashure fun!  I don't know that this French chair was trash to begin with but it certainly did make its way into being a treasure indeed! This is my most recent makeover!💕#makeover #beautiful #statementpiece #upholstery #frenchchair There are 2 sides to everything and in this makeover too!  Velvety glam on the front and a modern statement in peacock feathers hugging the back!  Soooo pretty! 💕💕#thecuratorscollection #obsessed #sofine #soglam #feathers #velvet #statementpiece #beautiful #makeover #upholstery I am obsessed!! These (there are 2!) might just be the most luxurious chairs I have ever re upholstered! Gorgeous metallics mixed with luxurious fine velvets!  Wait till you see the backside of these chairs!  They will be delivered to their home tomorrow morning!  Can't wait!! #luxury #glamglow #makeover #upholstered #stunning #thecuratorscollection #soglam #sofine #obsessed Okay... here's a peek at the "during" of these two sweet chairs. They were  my client's Nana's chairs and it is my hope that Nana would be pleased with this makeover. #nanaschair #thecuratorscollection #makeover #upholstered #velvet #newlook #soglam #metallic So this is what has been keeping me busy these days... actually there are 2 of them! Without giving away what they look like now I thought I would share what the choices for fabric were first. My client chose the print for the backside and the velvet for the front side with exquisite soft pink velvet for the welting and the arms. I also gave the orange looking wood a glamorous look with some warm silver metallic paint. I hope to share with you soon! I don't want to share the reveal before the owner has had a chance to see them :). #thecuratorscollection #upholstered #makeover #velvet #soglam #mynanas Soooooo this is my current situation.... I'm on sewing machine number three in 2 days and a deadline nearing the end in 4 days! 😬 I SWEAR ITS NOT ME! Lol... hubby is trying to fix mine after bringing me home one from one of his co-worker's wife's ... how sweet is he? 💕huge shout out of gratitude to Mrs. Schafer for helping me in a pinch! 😘🌷#stressfulday #sewing #upholstery #deadlines #sweetpeople #thankyou #gratitude
