Unique Antique Side Table

#Antique Side Table Before Transformation at Vintage Storehouse & Co #PaintedFurniture #BeforeandAfter

When I picked up this 1920’s Antique Dresser Set I showed you all last week, I also spotted this cute little side table among all the treasures in the store. I originally was torn on whether or not I would take it. I didn’t really have any ideas for it – but I ended up throwing it in with the other set and deciding that I would figure out what I wanted to do with it later.  [Read more…]

Antique Dresser Rescue and History – Rushville, Indiana

Last week I was out scouring my favorite antique and thrift stores looking for some beautiful pieces of furniture that I felt like would be good candidates for restoration. When looking for furniture, I generally look for pieces that are beyond just a basic “sand it down and stain it” repair.

I have been so excited to introduce you to the Stephanie Set since I finished them last Monday! This set was a custom job for a friend of mine. She loves the Restoration Hardware muted greys, browns and whites. I had never done a look like this before but I was excited to try it out and see what we could come up with. After researching a few tutorials and products that would help create the weathered grey wood look, I came across a new product called DIY Driftwood. (more to come on this product later.) I love look it gave and it sort of shaped the look of the rest of the piece. [Read more…]
