Have a seat!

This pretty chair would love to be in your home! Perfect for a little desk, girl's room, or vanity chair. It has a cane back and a comfy padded seat. I painted it cream and antiqued it in all the right places. I recovered the chair with a sturdy yet pretty grey-blue fabric with tan accents. Completly lovely!

Table Ideas

Don't you just love it when you accomplish a huge task? Here are some pics of my kitchen table and chairs. I've wiped off the blood, sweat, and tears so they look prettier! It took awhile to find the four fun mis-matched chairs and a great pedestal table but I think it was worth the wait. I painted the table with cream and robin's egg blue undertones with a antiqued green apple finish. The chairs are all painted cream and antiqued. Even though they are different styles painting them the same finish unifies the space.

On the table is an awesome, colorful, and vintage tv tray. I accented the tray with a petite china tier dome, bird's nest in a pink cut crystal cup, and a wire and crystal cage. Everything is available except the wire cage.

Dazzle with Domes

I love mixing china patterns, cut glass, and crystal, thus these beauties were born! The petite stand can be used anywhere. Put your rings under the glass and hang bracelets over the top to decorate your vanity, place some delicious truffles inside and give it to a special friend or use it to decorate the tight spots above or under cabinets. The medium china pedestals would be great for cookies or cupcakes. Each piece is unique and lovely! Utter delight!
