2016 This should be Fun..

The last of 2015 has been such a busy time for me.  I have been working at a Antique/Furniture Store Painting and refinishing furniture and selling my burlap designs.  The Store is Called "You Never Know" its located at 1218 College Street Clarksville Tennessee. If you are ever in the area please stop by and say hi. 

I also began selling my burlap designs  and Frames on Etsy this year and Christmas was a banner month with over 300 sales in 30 days.  I do have to say December was a blur of activity and thouroughly exhausting but quite enjoyable. 

I still sell my Digital Scrapbook Designs on Etsy and Creative Market, although I havent created anything new in a few years..

Below is a few pictures of my Creations that are for sale or been sold this year. 

Here is to 2016

Before & After Waterfall Dresser into a Book Shelf

Found this old Waterfall Dresser sitting outside at a thrift store, and by the looks of it, it had been their a long time.  It had severe water damage and was ready for the scrap heap.  I purchased the dresser thinking the handles would be worth the purchase price.  When I got it back to the shop at You Never Know.  I started taking it apart, at first I was just going to take the hardware off and scrap the rest but it was suggested the drawers were in good shape also.  Three of them were in great shape just need sanding the 4th one had really bad water damage. 

I was going to make little drawer baskets out of them but thought about a bookshelf.
I am happy with the results.

I love to Re purpose old Furniture  and make it useful again.  I used the Miss Lillian's Chock Paint Colors of Irish Cream and Mayan Turquoise and sealed it with General Finishes High Performance Top Coat Satin Finish.

Before and After Painted and Distressed Buffet

This Buffet was in terrible condition when we received at the store.  I helped Paint and Sara Finished it off with another layer of Paint and Sealer.  We then cleaned and used Copper gilding wax on the Handles and knobs.  This buffet is now one of my favorite pieces of furniture.

Used General Finishes Pitch Black Paint and GF High Performance Top Coat.  The Copper Gilding Wax is my Ms. Lillian's.  We Carry All of these supplies at the Store: You Never Know located in Clarksville Tennessee.
