A Few Painted Pieces

Just another quick update with 2 pieces for you. Carver Junk Company has been very busy, which is great for my business but I am slacking on pictures of before and after. So here is one to tide you over...I will be a better blogger once school starts (SEVEN days...not that I'm excited or anything...)


Record cabinet found in the corner of a garage at an estate sale, and it came with mouse droppings!

After: A great bathroom storage cabinet or bar!

And this piece came to me painted a light yellow but it was a bad paint job. The sitter that helped me every Wednesday this summer was updating her apartment and thought it would be great in a pop of orange! She picked right!

I have a garage full of furniture just waiting for the humidity to drop. Can't wait for fall painting!

Desk Revival

I have been MIA for a few weeks. Still working on pieces, but focusing more on being the mom I want to be instead of stressing about what's not getting done. The kids go back to school in a few weeks and I'm hopeful that my productivity will be back :)

A longtime friend picked this piece off Craigslist for her son who is starting Kindergarten.

He has a quilt in his room with reds, blues, greens and browns. I went with a light gray green...and it is more green than the photos show. The rest of his bedroom set is cherry, so I stripped the top and used Minwax Cherry stain.

Her son picked out Lion Head pulls and he's very excited!

I miss my readers but am having a fabulous time with the kids this summer! See you all soon!
