Saving an Empire

My sister-in-law traded me an empire dresser for revamping a couple things for her.  I've seen quite a few painted empires that turned out beautiful, but I like to restore pieces if they warrant it.  This is how it turned out.

Getting Ready for Fancy Farm Girl 2015

Wow!  It's almost time for the Fancy Farm Girl Vintage Market.  I've been working on pieces for the show for months now, but there is still the last push to get it all done.  Here is a peek at a few things I'll be bringing.

It looks like a pretty eclectic mix of stuff, but will be grouped in three different sections that will be shared between my sister and her husband, my brother and his wife, and my husband and me.  We will have a garden section with great plants from Ron & Phyllis, a rusty - vintage section, and a French inspired section.  I have had so much fun working with different techniques such as vinegar stain, chalk paint, dry brush, and Vaseline relief.  
Anyone in the Moses Lake Washington area Mother's Day weekend needs to check out this show.  This is the 2nd year, and it will be twice as big as last year.  So join us May 9th at the Grant County fairground for the 2nd annual Fancy Farm Girl Vintage Market.

Sleek Little Cabinet

I picked up this little cabinet at our local thrift store.  Someone had done a lot of work on it in the '80s, but it really needed some work to bring it into this century.
