make me pretty round up

June 3, 2015

So May was my first month at RVA Antiques and I have been painting like a mad woman. I have been burning through the stocked up furniture projects and haven’t had any time to blog about it. So I decided to do a big before and after post of all my projects from the last month.

I also want to tell you, if you live in RVA, you need to go to RVA Antiques. It is seriously cute, filled with cool vintage, antiques and hand made stuff. And the prices are very affordable. If you go out on a Saturday you can hit the Lakeside farmers market, too – just across the parking lot!

And this Saturday would be the day to go because RVA Antiques is having their first Vintage Market!

Now for the furniture!


I don’t have a before for this chair but I love this anchor fabric!






I did both these dressers with Miss Mustard seed Boxwood Milk Paint, possibly my favorite color paint ever!


IMG_7921.JPGOnce again, no before, but I picked up this old mirror frame at a yard sale, painted it and turned it into a chalk board.

So come check out my space at RVA Antiques (and all the other awesome stuff they have there!) My booth is a work in progress – I just switched to a bigger space and don’t really have any walls yet but it’s getting there!

a space of my own

July 24, 2012

I have been selling my furniture creations for about three years now and honestly, it’s been challenging. I started out on Etsy but shipping furniture is expensive! Then I tried craft shows but people aren’t really thinking big ticket items at those kinds of events. I have had good luck selling my stuff at consignment at shops around town and in DC but it’s a lot of work keeping up with everyone, moving inventory around, etc. So I am now experimenting with another option – a booth at the West End Antiques Mall.

If you have never visited, it’s worth the trip. There are 250 booths over 50000 square feet. It can be pretty overwhelming but you can get a map at the front desk (and come find me! booth 56.) I am sharing a space with my friend Paige, of Old Moon Vintage. It’s a good partnership since she collects mostly smaller things and I collect mostly bigger things. I am going to give it three months and see what happens but I love having my own little space!
