I found a caned back chair awhile ago that was in bad shape, but the caning was great!  Which is unusual, usually it is the other way around!
So I cut off the top and had it sitting in my shed until I thought of something for it.  I was thinking I was going to do a picture frame like this from All Things Thrifty.
But then I started thinking about earring frames and realized that this may be perfect.

I painted it with a pretty blue color, distressed it and then glazed
it with Martha Stewart's metallic glaze.
It works perfect as an earring display...don't ya think??!!

Remember this nightstand that I painted for a client last month?
Well she called and asked if I would re-do her son's dresser to coordinate with the nightstand.

This is the dresser that she had painted, she wanted to have it re-painted red and add stripes.
Here it is all finished and stripey!!

I found this little Dresser at a garage sale this summer. 
It was looking "shabby" but not in a good way!

After washing all the grime off it, I painted it a pretty pink, distressed it slightly and made it look "Shabby" but in a good way!
I absolutely love these flower knobs...I think they gave the dresser the perfect look.

The fabric lining in the drawer, so cute!

I've loving the "numbered" dressers that have been shown on many blogs so I couldn't wait to do one too!
I painted this dresser last year, took it the Makers' Market (and it didn't sale)
and then put it in storage. 
I finally brought it home and painted some numbers on it, now it has some personality!

So, I totally forgot to take a "before" picture of this table and chair set...
but I KNOW we have all seen them before!!  These dining sets are everywhere!

This was a make-over for a client who wanted to update the set and
make it perfect for her cute little dining room!

She had the paint "color-matched" from a little bird decoration she had in her dining room.  The color is a blue-gray...very pretty!  I stripped the table top to bare wood and then stained the top with dark walnut.  All the chairs and table legs were lightly distressed.

I think it turned out Lovely...only show how a little paint and time can make an outdated piece come to life and look perfect!
