Furniture Makeovers and Booth Pics

Hi friends!
I have been busy, busy getting several pieces of furniture ready for my front booth at Old Bank Antiques - Lake Martin.  I thought I would miss having all of the white stuff, but I really like the way it is shaping up.  There are still lots of smalls in the photos. I planned on moving many of them to my downstairs booth, but they had just refinished the hardwood floors on the stairs so I couldn't get there. It took the best part of two days to get it all changed up and I think another couple of hours worth of tweaking will do it.
I will try to get photos of my booth downstairs next week. It got a makeover too.

This turned out great

 I remembered to get a before pic after I started painting!!
I always have a little helper close by  : )

I like how the original green paint shows in the distressed areas

Washed canvas, French stencil, gray paint, 
and tea was all it took to make this

My favorite!
A French Style Dresser with a new French Finish.

Love how the Annie Sloan French Linen
looks next to the dark waxed natural wood

For more pictures you can check out the album on my facebook


  1. Oh-It looks so nice and I love your little helper! That dresser is beautiful! xo Diana

  2. I LOVE that french dresser! I need to drop by your booth....tell me where it is on Lake Martin and when my sister and I go to her lake house in April for girl's weekend I'd love to look it up.

    Can't wait to see your downstairs room!

  3. Great pieces, Rhonda! I love the stencil you did on that bench.

  4. What pretty pieces Rhonda...so fresh and ready for the nicer temps.

  5. Everything looks wonderful, Rhonda! I am in love with the french dresser. Hugs, Sherry

  6. Rhonda,

  7. Rhonda, you have been busy. I'm sure your space looks fantastic.

  8. Your furniture is stunning! I love the dresser with the drawers left natural. Everything is so yummy!

  9. Great job! I LOVE them all but that first piece is my favorite!!

  10. All your pieces are beautiful. I especially love the french dresser.


  11. I love what you did. I think both the chest and bench are fantastic.

  12. All three pieces are yummy! But the dresser is my favorite! Great job!

  13. Love that dresser! I just used that same color in my bathroom. Didn't like it at first, but it's definitely growing on me.

  14. Those pieces are divine! Newest linky follower here...This project would be perfect for our linky party featuring "Transformations" called Repurpose-Remodel-Reveal, I know our readers would love to see it too!

  15. Hi Rhonda! What beautiful pieces! You really have a knack for choosing lovely, unique pieces of furniture and giving them just the right finish! Thank you for the inspiration!
    Best Wishes and Blessings,

  16. I love this bench. These pieces are abosolutely beautiful!

  17. Love the table re-do. Quite elegant.

  18. Loved looking at your booth on FB. I have been playing with ASCP and really like it! Today at Angels a couple offered me 1/2 price on a desk and chair I just painted - because she wanted to strip and repaint it blue. I told her I had more invested in the paint than her offer! And I just put it in the booth! She then got a lecture on the quality of ASCP...repaint it???NEVER!


So happy you are here - I love your comments!
