I love lamps! I picked up a pair at a yard sale a few weeks ago. The finish was dated but the “bones” were good. They are nice and heavy but the finish was dated.
Nothing a little paint can’t fix.
Sprayed with grey paint.
Then for a little more interest, I did somewhat of a whitewash with gesso. It toned down the paint and added a little depth.
The original shades were definitely not a match for the lamps so I bought shades and added a beaded trim.
Installed in the shop!

I picked up this curio cabinet last Saturday at an estate sale on Cape Cod.
Nothing a little white paint (Chantilly Lace) and toile can’t cure.
The original applique was kind of blah…..so I changed that too. Something more in keeping with the with toile.
Already installed in the shop.
Gotta love a quick flip!

noun: armoire; plural noun: armoires
a wardrobe or movable cabinet, typically one that is ornate or antique.
That’s the definition of armoire. Sounds fancy right?
Antique = check! Movable = check! Fancy = possible!
With a toooooooooon of work! Peeling veneer might just be the bane of my existance! Sometimes I might just be my own worst enemy.
