Romantic Rose Dresser **SOLD**

**SOLD** Thanks Lindsay!

A petite sized vintage dresser that I barely had time to put on our blog.  For this dresser, I ventured up to Cayuga to purchased some Ce Ce Caldwell Chalk & Clay paint - thought I would try it out! I found it very comparable to Annie Sloan Paint, but I didn't fancy the wax so much.  I find the Annie Sloan wax and is really soft and pliable.  The clear and dark wax were applied to this dresser to give it this wonderful aged look.  I personally love the golden filligree drawer pulls!

HandPainted Gem **SOLD**


Unique & One of a Kind vintage solid Maple dresser that nobody else will have. Douglas painted freehand that of a cherry blossom tree in brown/silver and touch of turquoise - not stencilled. Refinished using incomparable Annie Sloan Chalk paint in "Old White" and Annie Sloan wax for long lasting protection. Four drawers. Original Hardware.

Gothic Seating ***SOLD***

**** SOLD ****

4 Antique ( African Mahogany ) quality gold colour velvet with studs (one chair missing about 6 studs, but they can be purchased easily) - gothic revival style - 19th century - structurally sound - no rips or tears - - no scratches - excellent condition.  We purchased six to begin with, but Douglas wants to keep two for himself (he fancies them in an entryway), which leaves the four to be sold. Douglas painted ONE of them a rich gold and brown - very versace looking (that's the one Douglas is keeping!)

Gentle and Wispy **SOLD**

****SOLD**** Thanks Joan! 

This beautiful solid cherry wood vintage coffee table is so adorable! It has been redeemed and up cycled using exclusive Ce Ce Caldwell paints and waxes.  (Did you know there is only one store in all of Canada that sells her paint and it just happens to be 45 mins away from me in Cayuga!?)  This was painted with Portland Rose, clear wax for protection and artistically distressed.  Beautiful little Cherry Blossom tree has been handpainted on the top.  Unique - One of a Kind!

Mirror, Mirror: Who is the Fairest of them All? **SOLD**

***SOLD*** Thank you Cathy! 

We acquired this beauty from a very reputable Antiques dealer in Jordan, Ontario.  This Hepplewhite beauty is pure Mahogany and Oak - incredibly solid and heavy! The vanity is circa 1930.  Even without the mirror, this would be a wonderful dresser, entryway table or writing desk.  The craftsmanship of this piece is nothing but top quality -> dust drawers, dovetailed construction.  This beauty will far outlive me or you!

An absolute beauty that I was reluctant to paint!

Old Lady Gilded **SOLD**

***SOLD*** Thanks Allison! 

1920's dresser - I love the look of this kind of dresser and I absolutely love the rings on the hardware.  She sat in a shed for about 8 years, neglected and falling apart. 

Redeemed and restored.
