So I made sure to watch the Nate show this morning to see Shaunna from the Perfectly Imperfect blog. She did a great job and they showed lots of footage from her home where you can get tons of ideas from painted and distressed furniture to architectural pieces to great interesting vintage finds!
A local dealer had given me a couple of plain white paneled doors to do something with so here is one - I based it in black then did a quick dry brush over that with cream and then did another quick brush coat over that with a taupe then distressed and added a pair of sconces. Pieces like this just tucked in a corner or hung on the wall can add rustic and architectural interest to your home!
I blogged this summer after I did the Briarwood Flea Market about meeting a couple who are pickers and travel around the country picking from some of the biggest flea markets. They have a sale to dealers and I really wanted to go but I had to take my car in that morning and by the time I was ready to go, another dealer told me they were almost sold out! But here is one piece another dealer bought at the sale that I'm painting - it's so cute and she also bought a cute vintage cupboard I'm working on. I will definitely go early to the next sale!
the perfect gift
