~PAINTED FURNITURE - Vintage ARMOIRE with Pink Roses



PAINTED PRETTIES

A couple of weeks ago I wrote a POST about doing some work for a local Antique Shoppe...remember? My hubby and I have a couple of friends who own a fabulous store in Oklahoma City and asked if I would be interested in doing some custom work. I thought you all might like to see a few of the finished products lovingly transformed! These lovely old finds will soon be offered up for sale in their beautiful antique market! They deal mostly with vintage wardrobes and their store is truly 2die4! I snapped all but one of these pictures yesterday afternoon outside on my driveway so they aren't that great! I so hope you can see enough of what was done to appreciate how wonderful scratched, dented, dinged and damaged vintage furniture can turn out when treated with some TLC and love...

VINTAGE CEDAR CHEST

This fabulous old chest is absolutely amazing! The inside was absolutely pristine but the outside was coated with some garish faux finish that was sadly overdone... LESS I tell you...LESS is more! (Trust me, girls!)

VINTAGE PIE-CRUST TABLE

I have a weakness for old tables and would have considered keeping this one had I the room for just one more...sadly, I don't! Charming, petite and soooo shabby!

TOP EDGE OF PIE-CRUST TABLE

This little beauty simply stole my heart away! I just love her! I just MAY have to offer her up for sale on my website...or eBay! Not sure yet...we'll see! Email me if you want more information!

VINTAGE WARDROBE

I'm telling you as honestly as I can...there is nothing that is sweeter than an old Wardrobe that has been painted and graced with hand painted artwork (simply stated, pink roses!). They make a statement in a room that cannot be equaled. Leave the new stuff at the pre-fab furniture stores and bring a sweet old one home with you if you can...timeless and forever lovely! You won't be sorry!

UP-CLOSE ARTWORK

I've gone crazy-wild painting things in my home. I will ALWAYS believe "Less is More" when it comes to painted pieces...but I HAVE become a bit more daring with some of my own finds. Things I've put off for years are finally being transformed. It is so much fun...it is a real joy to take something that has lived beyond it's prime and breathe new life into it.

If you are ever in Oklahoma City and want to check out some of these "can't ship" items (except the table) for yourself, stop into "THE RINK GALLERY"! I promise you...it's worth the drive and you may even return home with a treasure or two.

Blessings to you as you become creative, challenged and changed...Rebecca

I feel I need to say sorry to you (along with all the other beautiful ladies out there that I follow) for not popping by in so so long. Truth is I have been out of sorts with myself & well needed to shut myself away for some time. Ok so I have spent the past hour or so reading up on your posts (had tears running down my face from laughing so much reading the grace your Miss K delivered) & as usual feel so calmed from the words you place on your blog. Your restored creations are just stunning (as usual)so Miss R keep up the great work & keep the words flowing.....

I never get tired of seeing the transformation you make of these simplistic old pieces. You are certainly blessed with a God-given talent. I am sure I speak for us all when I say, we can't wait to see more girly, girly things from your talented hands.

Hugs & Blessings

I absolutely love your pieces Rebecca. That little table is so darling..Mr.FV would be in big trouble if I lived close to you! We don't really have anyone who sells shabby chic cottage furniture near us. People do love our home when they come to visit as they have never seen so much white in a room before! I hope my home is as romantic and pretty as yours one day!

Good Morning Rebecca, I could not agree more about the old pieces transformed. I love my old Armoire with painted roses. It makes a statement in the room that otherwise would be empty. Your custom work is just lovely. I am crazy about the pie crust table. You are a bundle of talent my friend!!
p.s. I hope to visit that shop one day when we come to Oklahoma!

Have a great week and Happy Creating!!
Hugs, Celestina Marie

Awesome! Absolutely divine, Rebecca.
It is 'over the moon' ... stars, too.

Good thing I don't live in OKC as these pieces wouldn't be there 10 seconds.

Can we 'hire you' ... chuckle.

Your talent is such a blessing to you, I know, that we are all so fortunate you share with each of us in your posts ... my talent is writing checks!

Rebecca, your work is stunning! These pieces are so very lovely! I love them all!

You are, indeed, blessed with creativity and talent. It must be so rewarding to take a shabby piece of furniture and turn it into a gorgeous work of art.

Many blessings to you today.

With Christ's Love,

Andrea

Hi dear Rebecca, your painted pieces are simply to die for...so beautiful and tasteful!

I love the pie crust table....I would have simply had to keep this!

Recently as Ron and I have gone through our home removing all the color from the walls, he has had great difficulty painting over my decorative painting....roses, vines, birds and butterflies mostly. When I first started learning to paint...I painted everything that didn't move! As I get a wee bit older, (Ha) I notice I like things much calmer. But, your beautiful painting makes me want to pick up my brush again!

You are inspiring me!!!!

Love and hugs, Barb

Rebecca,

Thank you so much for stopping by Loveleigh Treasures, if you hadn't I would not have been able to discover your drop dead gorgeous pinkalicious blog. It's beautiful and I will have to spend some time looking over EVERYTHING! The furniture in your post turned out very pretty. Have a blessed Tuesday with calm weather and no tornados!

Hi most beautiful inside and out Rebecca! Oh, these pieces are truly marvelous! First of all, you're wonderful at painting these roses! I wish I could do that! And, yes, the white is so lovely! I would surely have a hard time parting with any of these lovely pieces.
Thank you, sweetness, for your kind words to me! I'm so glad I'm able to put a smile on your most beautiful face!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia :)

Thank you so so much Rebecca for your kind words, you have no idea what they mean to me. Since the middle of last year I have felt like a lost soul & things I have managed to handle in the past have just seemed way too hard to bear, now its time to sort things out & decide just what direction to head in.
Thanks again
