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!

A Flower Box That Always Blooms

I have flower boxes outside that I have to constantly replant, water, feed, etc...I do not have a green thumb for real flowers. That is where I struggle. I do however, have a great relationship with faux flowers ( I don't wanna say "fake", it sounds...ugly). I like to have a touch of spring somewhere in the house, all year long. I found this mirror with a container attached at an estate sale. I have to tell you, it wasn't too cute..but, like I always say, "Great Lines"! I could see a small garden in the box and some farm house chic touches! She is a beauty. A great welcome piece for a foyer, or master bedroom, or guest room, or dining room....You pick the spot, it will shine! There is a duck egg blue under an old white, scruffed up a little, and a neutral flower palette. Check out my facebook page, A Little Country House, Vintage Market Design for more info on this piece!

Before....drabby...not fabby!

Hey there pretty!

Soothes the soul!

Gotta love Miss Hydrangea!!

You can change the garden with the seasons too, if
you really wanna have fun!

Can u see it in  your home?

Black is "the new black"

Make-over time! My client Nicole, had this pine table in her foyer and wanted to step it up. I gave the table, a little black dress, and for the mirror above the table, a little Chateau Grey. Again, hard to go wrong with black. It is a classic. Also, a black piece of furniture can anchor a room. Give some depth. The mirror was kinda of brassy to begin with, but the green is really lovely and fresh! I think she won't tire of this look for a long time. Enjoy!

Queen Anne

Not a huge of fan of Queen Anne style furnishings, but when it's painted, I can love it. I especially like a chair of this style, painted in a really bright color with a funky fabric on the seat. I am looking to do that real soon. This was a Goodwill find and a fixer upper. The client wanted black and I think it turned out very smart for her. It should be a versatile little table, she will enjoy for awhile. Keep to the classics people. When revamped a little, they don't disappoint! I have some exciting makeovers coming! Dining room pieces and more! Stay tuned!
