Don't you just love beautiful, bright, spring colors? Maria from Countryside Heirlooms re-finished these three dressers in Tropical Cocktail, Full Bloom, and Vanilla Frosting. Read on to learn more about them!
SPRING HAS CERTAINLY SPRUNG here at Countryside Heirlooms and we have to give credit to our supplier, Country Chic Paints out of Canada (http://www.countrychicpaint.com) for providing such cool, fun colors this season!
These beautifully painted pieces of furniture certainly allude to the notion that perhaps the dressers were in fact beautifully intact and in perfect condition. Beauty is certainly in the eye of the artist in this case because these pieces were far from being perfect when we nabbed them! They were in fact a far cry from being perfect.
Picked out of old vintage homes & a bygone era were these lovelies! Two were acquired from a home auctioned off and the other a mover's little blessing to us! In fact, we've developed several relationships as buyers of those who clean out homes or do whole house buy outs. It's certainly one way to keep a constant inventory of pieces in stock if in fact you're at the level of turning painted pieces into a full-fledged biz! We've noted the paint colors we used from Country Chic below each of these lovely pieces.
Country Chic - Full Bloom
Country Chic - Vanilla Frosting
Country Chic - Tropical Cocktail
And finally for the hardware, these gorgeous lovlies were adorned with pretty & high end looking glass knobs. We typically use Hobby Lobby for all of our fine hardware and these were no exception!
I’m Maria Roberts — mother, wife, caregiver and a foster parent. I began restoring furniture in 2013 and I love painting & restoring furniture! Countryside Heirlooms was established by my wonderful husband who wanted to provide an outlet for my passion for painting. Tom founded Countryside Heirlooms to help motivate me to keep moving while I recuperated after major back surgery. Painting furniture has & continues to be my escape from the many responsibilities going on in my life as I’m sure many of you can relate. In this journey, I’ll share our experiences in selecting great furniture pieces and the not so great pieces, restorations & transformations. As a bonus…if you love before and after pictures of restored furniture than this blog is for you!
