A few small changes

Do you remember this sad little table . . . that I painted white? Well, I couldn't sell it at my garage sale or on craigslist. So . . .
I made a few little changes . . .
and sold it about 2 minutes after it showed up on craigslist . . .
for more money than I tried to sell it for before.
Inspiration came from Basiques Boutique and the gorgeous desk in this post. Some other places I like to go to drool over painted furniture are Sanctuary Arts at Home and Sanctuary Arts for the Home (she has a really cool decoupage tutorial here) and of course, the queen of painted furniture, SavyCityFarmer's furniture blog, Stuff in the Burbs.

Incredibly beautiful! As always... you inspire me!

Wow! You have great vision, Heath!

And you wield a pretty mean paintbrush, too! It looks great!

I need to take a picture of my hutch and have you give me some suggestions. I'm just not sold on any colors yet!

The desk is gorgeous. I can't even the amount of work and energy you had to put into it but it definitely looks worth the while. Just found your site and absolutely love how it looks. Hope will have time to check back often.

I just had to drop by and say how wonderful and funny your poem was for Kari's surprise birthday party. Now that takes talent to write such a creative poem. Congrats on a cute, funny and creative written birthday poem that is sure to warm her heart.

Hi Heather,

I am so glad you found me and my Toile Around the World because now I have found your very cool blog! I can't wait to check out all your great ideas and get inspired...and I cut 12 inches off my hair last month too! I totally agree, I feel like I have a big girl hairstyle now and I love it!

Tracey said...

Heather,

Heather, I just found you through my friend Tracey's blog. Firstly, that end table is to die for and you have really inspired me to do something like that with a coffee table I have, and secondly, I live in the in the Broadlands..how about you?? You've already been bookmarked!

Sarah said...

Wow! That table looks fantastic. I need some painting skills - I can't paint furniture to save my life. You are talented!
