New year, new pieces, and an awesome mod sign!

Hi guys!  I'm trying to remember to stop by my blog on occasion and post a few photos - as I've mentioned in the past, I've moved my business to my facebook page, which you can find here. Please head over and like my page so you can stay up to date on current (and future!) pieces.  I'd love to have you join us!

In the meantime - here are a few photos of recent work.  Also - check out this awesome (and HUGE!) sign I crafted over the past few days.  I've been searching for something large and retro-modern for our master bedroom and couldn't find the perfect thing.  So - off to Home Depot I went.  It's really massive - 4' square - and I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out!

Have a great day!  :-)

I'm still painting!

Hi guys!

I know I've been silent over here for quite a while, and I'm sorry about that!  I'm still here, still painting, and still doing well.  :-)

I've been posting my pieces almost exclusively on my Facebook page (www.facebook.com/atlantashabbychic), and they're selling well there -so I've not posted anything on my blog in the past several months.  I miss writing though, so I'd like to get back to it.  Maybe after the craziness of the spring season?  It seems as though as soon as the weather warms up, my business traffic increases ten-fold - which I'm incredibly grateful for, but it doesn't offer much time for writing over here.  I'd love to get back to it over the summer - but for now, here are a few of my most recent pieces.  The first two are available and the rest are sold - I'll put the prices under the two available pieces for you.  :-)  Thanks so much for sticking with me on this blog, through our many moves and transitions, and through 6 years of painting furniture.  I so love what I do, and hope to do it for decades to come.  :-)


Authentic Dixie Campaign Dresser - $895


Gorgeous Blue Antique Buffet - $695

Antique French Provincial in Old White (SOLD)

It doesn't get more classic than this.


It's been a while since I had a french provincial piece in my workshop, so I was beyond thrilled to score this beauty a few weeks ago.  I've had a long list of custom work to take care of first, though… so it sat there.  Calling my name.  :-)  Finally, I had the chance to work on it last week and WOW.  It is just as gorgeous as I'd hoped it would be.  

I'm going to let the photos do the talking here.  Basic details - Nine dovetailed drawers, gorgeous original hardware, made by Drexel Furniture and from the 1960's.  Swoonworthy french legs.  Classic french finish - distressed in Old White.  There is absolutely nothing not to love about this piece.  Use it in your foyer, use it in your family room, use it in your dining room or bedroom or even in your kitchen.  It. Is.  GORGEOUS.  :-)  71'' x 35'' x 21'' - $695 (SOLD).









If you want this piece for your home, please send me an email at shabbychic011@gmail.com, and I'll respond quickly.  :-)  Thanks!

Midcentury Mod Buffet in Graphite (SOLD)

LOVE.


I am so into midcentury furniture right now, and it seems that the rest of the world is too.  I see it in every decorating magazine, and it's all the rage at Restoration Hardware and West Elm and even Pottery Barn.  The sleekness of midcentury furniture has absolutely made a comeback - and this piece embodies everything that is AWESOME about the style.


The sleek and simple lines, the minimal distressing, the dark color with bright gold hardware.  Every little bit of this piece is stunning.


The three dovetailed drawers offer lots of storage space (and open and close with ease), while two doors hide open shelf storage.  Perfect for storing even the largest of serving platters.



I've painted this midcentury looker in Graphite, with very minimal distressing and a dark wax glaze.  It's even more lovely in person if you can believe it.  :-)  60'' x 30'' x 18'' - $560 (SOLD).  Be sure to email me at shabbychic011@gmail.com if you have the perfect spot for this beauty in your home!

Antique Bowfront Dresser/Buffet (SOLD)


Such a classic beauty.


I love the curves of a bow front piece.  It's so graceful.  I wanted to emphasize the curves on this one, so I distressed it very little - only along the edges.  The end result is gorgeous.  



All eight drawers are dovetailed and work well - the graduated size makes them perfect for holding anything from small items to bulky sweaters (or larger serving pieces if used as a buffet).  The brass hardware is original and pops so beautifully against the dark paint.



Painted in Graphite with distressing and clear wax, this lovely piece of furniture would be so lovely in any bedroom.  Or any dining room.  Or in any foyer or family room.  Take your pick.  :-)  54'' x 35'' x 20'' - $595 (SOLD).  


If you'd like to purchase this piece, please email me at shabbychic011@gmail.com - thanks!  :-)

Antique Dresser/Buffet in Blue (SOLD)


Love, love and LOVE.

Aren't the details on this one so sweet?  I love the tortoise shell design on the middle drawer front and the pretty swirls on the bottom and the gorgeous legs.  So great.



This is such a classic dresser in so many ways.  From the 1930's design to the hardware to the legs to the spacious drawers - it's made to be beautiful and useful at the same time.  Not to mention sturdy - the solid wood construction and dovetailing of the drawers ensures that it'll continue to stand the test of time.


I've painted this sweetie in Aubusson Blue, which is a color I've never tried before but will DEFINITELY be using again.  It's a gorgeous, rich, sophisticated color - and combined with brass hardware it's just stunning.


The size of this piece makes it a great choice for lots of different uses.  It could be a lovely dresser in any bedroom, or even double as a changing table in a nursery.  It could be a beautiful buffet in a dining room.  It could even grace your foyer or your family room.  Endless possibilities.  It measures 48'' long x 35'' tall x 20'' deep and is priced at $490 (SOLD). 


Please send an email to shabbychic011@gmail.com if you'd like to purchase this piece!  Thanks!  :-)
