The new year is almost here, it’s always fun to see what were the highlights of the year that’s ending. I started this blog in February, and here is a quick peek at the top 5 posts from then until now.
This was my first attempt at hand-painting a detailed design. It was a fun project and I love how it turned out. I think it takes top spot because it is a very popular image on Pinterest.
These “His” and “Her” antique dressers were such an awesome find. I practiced my refinishing skills for the first time on each of their tops. I was so excited that they sold as a pair, since they were bought and re-done together.
I will admit, this one surprised me. I think it may have received so many hits because it details a special paint resist technique I tried using Vaseline. Either way, it’s #3!
Oh my goodness, this project basically took up my entire summer. Working on this French settee was my first time attempting to reupholster anything and so was a major labor of love. I met the lady who purchased it, and she was buying it for her daughter’s French-themed nursery. It’s always fun to know where a piece is heading.
and #5. Artissimo Sideboard
This is probably my favorite piece of the year. I tried out a new MMS milk paint color and it was purchased by a local friend for her entryway. She bought it as a birthday present for herself. I think it went from 70’s outdated honey stain to modern glam. It also has been popular on Pinterest.
I am not surprised that all of these posts are about furniture makeovers! They continue to be the bread and butter of my business. I love finding and writing about my unique small treasures, but my real passion is the furniture.
Thank you for all of your support in 2013 and for making these posts so popular!
Happy New Year
