About Me

My Photo
God does have a sense of humor, after years of infertility, we adopted 2 beautiful babies, I later had the "surprise baby"! In the very spare time I have, I love to decorate, paint, and make all kinds of things. I do repurpose old furniture and custom paint furniture for clients. I work with all types of vintage items. I love to make our house a home. I like to see how others do it and share what I do also. Contact me at alittlecountryhouse@gmail.com if you are interested in any products I have posted or if you are local to Atlanta and want a furniture face lift! Love your old junk again!

Glamour Girl

She is totally done. My 30's-40's antique vanity is done and ready for a new home. She was in pretty bad shape, too bad to refinish, I had to paint. She is a lovely "french silver". The bench did not come with her originally, but it is old, as well and they pair nicely together. I know this would be great in a master bedroom, or if you are lucky enough to have a fabulous closet with a dressing area! Contact me at alittlecountryhouse@gmail.com if you are local to Atlanta area and want my Glamour Girl... More goodies to come!

first, move all the junk off so you can paint....told ya she was rough
not easy, but we can do it...

First, welcome to blogging, you'll love it. You did a great job on painting. The power of paint is beyond belief. You should be very proud of yourself, cause you did good. I'm a graduate of Debbie's Newbie party, and now have my own. Wishing you'll post over at Sunday's Best going on now. I remember when I was new (still am really) and how excited I was when someone followed me, so I am passing forward the love - Now following you. I'm a graduate of Debbie's Newbie party, and now have my own. Wishing you'll post over at Sunday's Best going on now.
