Remember the green I needed help with?? How AMAZING did this turn out?!? The funny thing is, I went with the darker garland green and once it began to dry I was confused…it was the lighter dried herb?!? The person at the paint counter mixed up the two lids! 🤣🤣🤣 oh well, I love it! It’s available!! It’s measures 55x20 wide x29.5 tall. It would be a beautiful tv stand, dresser, buffet, whatever!! One removable shelf in the middle cabinet could fit a DVD player or game console or your kitchen aid mixer would fit as it’s very tall! 8 very spacious drawers roll very smoothly! And the little legs….oh my! Message for details!

Oh! And I always get questions about where to get this sign when I stage with it! Check out my friend Dana at FaithInspired Signs to get yours!

Each time I paint inside a hutch I say never again! But then I get another hutch and think…you know what would be really cool? 🤣 I love to work on family pieces that have been passed down. Such sweet memories! This piece will head back down the road 5 hours to its home!
.
Do you have a family piece tucked away in a bedroom or basement because it was in your family but you’re nervous to do anything to it?! Let me help! Simply send a picture and what you are thinking and I will get you a quote.

Price reduced!!! I’ve got to get this big mama out of my staging area! 😁

I have been ridiculously excited to see how this would turn out! I have to give Grandpa Bill’s Wood Shop the credit. I brought him the top piece (minus the hooks) that was formerly an entertainment center hutch. My idea was to cut out the backing and make it a mantle for a fireplace. He said we should do cubbies and hooks! And wha-la!
.
At 7 feet wide, it’s a show stopper of a piece that will need a pretty darn big entryway or garage wall. Think of all of the organization!!! I’m super excited to see who snags it and where they put it!

Friends! This beauty was custom painted but is unexpectedly back up for grabs! You need this for your Christmas decor! And it’s light enough you could move it around to a different spot after the holidays. It’s painted white with black antiquing. It measures 53x9x56 tall. It’s so lovely!

Update: sold

By now, you know I love unique pieces and THIS one I have never seen one like it! I am calling this a blanket chest. I can see it in a large bedroom or guest room as a coffee table/chest for extra sheets and blankets as it has 3 very large drawers. It could also go in your living room or sunroom with the same purpose! Such great storage and it’s beautiful painted in a warm white (just a smidge different than white which you’d probably never notice) moderately distressed and sealed.

You know you love your job when…..you get up to make sure your kid gets out the door at 6am on a Saturday and then decide to work because you’re so excited to see the final product! With Grandpa Bill’s help we turned this mantle into a free standing piece that will be a statement piece year round in its new home! When I posted last week I was contacted to custom paint it white with black distressing/aging. It turned out SO good! Can’t wait to see it in its new home!
.
Oh! And they aren’t for sale, but aren’t my little wooden tree made out of a door (Once again, Grandpa Bills magic) and my rustic church fantastic!?!?

Update: SOLD!

I know I say it all the time but I would have loved to keep this one if I had a spot! It’s another very very large piece! It measures 56.5x18x40.5 tall. (Love the height!) It would make an awesome tv stand, buffet, or just gorgeous accent piece! It’s been painted black, lightly distressed on the edges and sealed. It has sliding “barn doors” (this is its one quirk…having been stored for a bit they do slide a little hard) and 3 spacious drawers! It’s available!

Take another look at the possibilities for this amazing buffet!! I didn’t plan on finishing the hutch topper but when I got started I couldn’t resist. It is definitely more practical without. You could use it for a coffee bar, buffet, or I see it as a tv stand! It has TONS of storage! And think how amazing with some Christmas decor! 🥰 it’s available with a new price too!

This turned out SO good!!!! For fear of sounding like someone I’m not…from drab to fab!! 🤣🤣 This mid century 2 piece buffet/hutch is a monster! It measures 50x19x75 tall. I love the size! I also love that it has lights on every shelf. I did include a pic of it without the hutch on too as it could be a really cool tv stand as well! It has 2 cupboards, one with a shelf and one with a secret drawer!! In addition to two other drawers. The amount of dishes or pretties you can display is endless! Merry Christmas early to you!!! No way your husband can be mad if you tell him you already bought your present, right!? 🤣

Ohhh the coffee drinkers in my fam are going to be mad about this one! 🤣 if there was one category of pieces that come and go a lot at our house it’s the coffee bar. It is ever changing! This one, is by far the most efficient! It stores ALL the drinks! For some reason I can’t seem to keep any wine on those wine bottle racks 🤔🤔😜 This piece measures 31.5x15x35.5 tall and could be purchased as is (it’s in superb shape with no dings or water marks) or painted!

Sometimes, a piece doesn’t sell right away and that leads me to add something, change the hardware or even repaint. This child/tween desk in rust is still around and so I found a cute chair and painted it in warm white to go along with it! The combo is perfect! Snag this set for a gift! I see it in your super cute boho living room area that you are trying to make cute with littles ones toys thrown everywhere! 🤣 all 4 of my kids have loved having a writing or drawing desk over the years!
