Finally the weather is cooperating and I can get at some of the projects that have been staring at me ever since last summer. I had so many plans until I found out I was expecting, and of course that put a hold on LOTS of things. But…I have never been happier to have my 6 kids and am now able to make some headway in my stash. Here’s the antique makeover lineup: a chair, a foot stool, and a wash stand.
Check out my first project…a totally unloved chair.
This hand-carved beauty was given to me by one of my best friends who thought I could bring it back to life. It sat for a year waiting for a makeover.
Isn’t that carving great!?

I totally understand about putting protects on hold to have a baby! My favorite is your chair, love how you gave is such character.

Darn it Larissa you have done it again! I am always a bit squeamish on painting wood but once AGAIN you have shown me the incredible transformation in painting that vanity! That …is … gourgeous! What paint did you use on it? I love the mellow softness to the color appropriate for it’s age and not a hard shiny black. I have an item from my stash in mind for this same finish detail- do tell – thanks!

popped on over from MMS. I love the wash stand. Ok, the others are great too, but I have a personal soft spot for wash stands. Great job 🙂 Oh and congrats on the baby. I’m one of 6 myself. 🙂

I’m interested to find out how much the trifold 2 drawer dressing table is worth..
Are you referring to in the original condition? No need for me to know now as the new owner is enjoying it. 🙂
