As the rains come down today, I do not feel so bad working in the garage on a project.
The opportunity arose to purchase a French Country hutch/armoire from a neighbor. . .
~ ~ that had moved months ago.
I had purchased a few furniture pieces from her prior to her move . . .
~ ~ and was admiring a pretty French hutch/armoire of hers that she was taking with her.
She emailed me and stated that she was letting this pretty hutch go and I had first right of refusal . . .
Refusal ???? …. How could I refuse !! …. SOLD!!!
Her hubby was delivering a large table to another neighbor. . .
~ ~ so he was kind enough to give me “special delivery” .
This piece had been painted all white and I wanted to distress it a bit . . .
After close inspection, I discovered that it was painted twice . . . yellow then white.
Then I discovered the manufacturer mark in a drawer . . . . Thomasville!
While distressing . . some of the paint just peeled off . . . (she used a latex paint with no primer) . . .
~ ~ and I discovered the original finish of this hutch.
I then decided to bring back some of the original finish in a few areas.
So what does this mean????…..more work….just can’t put it in its new place….
~ ~ and more projects being placed on hold.
Like this vintage door or gate . . . (I need to ask Mr. Savvy just what it is) . . .
Seems like it had a door handle . . .
A very rustic piece . . . most likely from a farm. . .
I found this piece in an antique shop a few doors down from my booth in Mebane.
After the hutch was delivered . . . I put this pumpkin project and vignette aside for another day.
Stay tuned for my “finished” projects soon . . . hopefully very soon!!!
Have a great day . . . hopefully with abundant sunshine . . . as mine will be one of those . . .
