The Guest House

I have to play favorites this time, because this time it is personal! This project is one of my favorites not only because it was for my Aunt and Uncle, but because I did so many pieces. Not the least of which is this glorious bed!!!

This was the first time I have ever made a king sized bed and I loved it!!!

 I'm positive you can't tell that I'm proud of this or anything...

 It got a whitewashed stain (pickling) to keep with the light and airy cottage theme my client was aiming for. I LOVE this bed y'all!!!

Then I also had several pieces to makeover:

This little side table wanted to bleed stain color through my paint, so I had to pull out the big tricks to get this little one to stay pretty.

 This was probably my favorite makeover piece! With the little crystal knobs and the distressed edges, it just makes me happy!

 These cute little table were metal. 

 These two little tables had drawers, but the client had a vision and I agreed wholeheartedly! The shabby chic paint and the natural baskets made these just perfect! They had to be converted to shelves where the drawers were in the bottom, but then they were just precious!

 I did four of these little stools. They were raw wood and I stained them with a dark brownish-gray stain, sealed them, and then painted and distressed them to fit in with the rest of the space.

 This little corner shelf had seen better days, but as soon as I saw it, I knew that it could be amazing! It turned out just as I imagined it and I think it is pretty cute! The little woven shelves just make me happy!

This was a big project that also had to be delivered to another town and I'm so blessed that I have such awesome family that support me and my business and give me these opportunities!
