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 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!

French Kiss

This is a client's table that was done with the intention of selling it, I finally finished! It was a tail-kicker, but I think it has turned out beautiful. It was a dark, very traditional set, but I think it turned into Country French Fabulous! It has a leaf, and will seat 8-10. It has 6 very well made chairs. I recovered the seats in a linen, french document fabric. The chairs and the table top are Annie Sloan Country Gray and the bottom of the table is Old White. I use a secret wax technique (ha ha) to achieve the finish. I liked the contrast of the darker top with the lighter bottom. I barely distressed the top and a bit on the legs.These colors are neutral and will go with any palette. If you are interested in this set, contact or A Little Country House and Vintage Market on FaceBook!

Let's set the table!

Beautiful table and chairs, great job painting so you can really see the detail. Thanks for linking to Cowgirl Up. I love the pink cast. Sounds so scary when your daughter broke her arm, yikes. Glad she is fine now.

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

I have a can of Country Grey and am thinking about painting some chairs. I am such a procrastinator. That table and chairs turned out great.

OH and follow me back on GFC!
