Our shopping event was a great success last night! I was so excited to share all of the pieces that I have been buying and redesigning in the past few months! And it was amazing to collaborate with five other local women. Thank you to all who came out in the cold to support our local businesses!
In the coming weeks, I will share those items that found homes last night and some that will be listed in my soon to be up and running shop on this blog.
This first one was one of my favorites from my collection last night. This is called a Martha Washington sewing cabinet. Original ones were from the 1800’s. This one is a reproduction from the early 1900’s – and from my research, most likely the 1920’s. The sides flip up to store yarn and sewing essentials. The top drawer has a cute divided insert. And the carved legs were just calling out to be painted to show their details.
When I acquired this piece I immediately thought it would be a perfect nightstand for a little girl’s bedroom. My daughter collects things and her nightstand is filled with her found treasures. I envisioned another little girl filling all these drawers and side compartments with her treasures! I painted it in Annie Sloan Old White, distressed it to show the details, and painted the knobs in Annie Sloan Antoinette. The drawers are lined with sweet girly paper.
I love how it turned out and now sweet Lilly with have a special place to keep her cherished childhood treasures!
