The booth at Treasures on Main in Lincolnton, NC is now free of Christmas decor and filled up with new finds. It’s amazing how a tiny booth can take so long to redecorate! It’s so fun though and I love every minute of it.
Some photos of the new arrangement…

Painted this beautiful desk for a friend’s daughter…

It started out as really beat up and had two broken legs. The legs have me fits getting them repaired but after the third try I finally got them on sturdy enough to work. I added the glass knobs because several original knobs were missing.


Painted these chairs with Bay Sands by Valspar. Then I upholstered them with this pretty fabric. Fairly easy upgrade that took about 2-3 hours to complete.

Just got this one done, used Annie Sloan Antibes Green as a base coat and lime green kind of dry brushed over it…

Newly stenciled display cabinet I’m going to use to display fabric in at the booth. I used Royal Design Studio’s stencil to do the inside. Really don’t want to put anything in it, it looks so nice! Decided not to put the glass front doors in unless I end up making jewelry again and need the cabinet to lock.

Bought this small china cabinet and decided to paint it Sharkey Gray , a Martha Stewart color, to match my other furniture in my craft room. It turned out beautifully after I distressed it a little and added new hardware!

Clark+Kensington™ Paint at Ace Hardware.

 

I love this brand of paint and I have painted with about every brand out there.  The finish is very smooth and coverage is great, I usually use two coats on the furniture I paint and I have never needed more than that.  It also seems to stick to most surfaces and after a day of curing it becomes very tough, truly the best “paint and primer in one” products I have used. One of my favorite colors is call Magic Spell, a rich, deep purple that almost looks like the color of mahogany wood.  Go try it out!
