A little bit of OLD & a little bit of NEW...

I found this adorable little green set (new)...it was the last one, and I just had to snatch it up! I wanted to keep it for my own house, but I told myself, "Now Vern, you can't keep everything you see and like. If I did that, what would I have to offer my customers?" I run into this problem a lot...oh my, what's a girl to do?!

This poster bed was an ugly, old wood tone so I painted it white...when I did that, the paint started krackling and peeling. After I distressed it a little more, I liked the way it turned out, so I left it that way! Hey, if you can't find an old shabby chic pc. from a sale or auction, you make your own!

I love your blog and I would be so happy if you would take a look at my blog with my paintings - I have some pretty county French style watercolors that sound like they would work beautifully in your store-- look at the Paris balconies etc.... I do have originals and matted prints - If you are interested lets talk ...Cheers, Diane
