Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, style, and food. Hope you have a nice stay!

My garage is empty! I made my goal of having my garage cleared out by the 4th of July. I can't even remember it ever being so empty. Tomorrow I will give it a thorough cleaning and organizing. I am one of those weird sorts who loves to clean and organize ( you wouldn't know it from the state of my work space the past few months).  I do have a little secret though, I have been stashing pieces in my husbands garage, so mine won't be empty for long. I finished these 3 pieces about a week ago. Each piece was a true antique, late 1800's -early 1900's, so I wanted the character to shine through. I chose a soft white with light distressing, the color is Ivory Palace by Behr.
First up is this sewing machine table. Someone had repurposed an old Singer sewing machine cabinet into a console table. The base was on backwards, so I got a steal on this one at the auction. I just unscrewed it and turned it around!

 I love all the detail on this piece!

Next was this washstand. It is large for a washstand and I love the pot bellied look of the drawers. I tried for a long time to sell it in the original condition. Finally I gave up and moved her to the garage. With a fresh coat of paint and some crystal hardware she sold right away!

Last but not least is this antique chest. I love this style of dresser and I love that it had all of its original carved pulls. The trim was off on one side and the back trim was broken in half. I used Gorilla glue to repair the little backsplash and just removed the piece of trim from the other side so they would match.
