What's "in-store"....

I have successfully set up shop in the Sleepy Poet Antique Mall space is in the new addition of the mall to the far right (space N-15). I keep forgetting to take pics of my booth but I did get a chance to snap a photo of my newest painted piece below. This is
the first piece that I have painted in 7 months! It was good to take a break from furniture painting. To be honest, I'm not sure if I will ever be back to painting the amount of pieces like I did from my former Blacklion days.

This cute little French Provincial 2-drawer side table has a fresh coat of gray and peacock blue (ASCP French Linen and Aubusson). I also waxed this piece with a dark finish...I forgot how labor intensive waxing can be!

Original gold vintage French hardware on bottom drawer. Top drawer is hidden with no hardware.

Drawers are lined with antique French paper

I went heavy on the distressing...allowing a lot of the original wood color show through.

This cutie is ready for a new home!
