Shabby Chic...

Hi all!!!

I wanted to share with you some beautiful furniture that one of my close friends has created from a drab piece of furniture into something shabby chic!!

My girlfriend, Sue, has found her calling. She loves to hunt and gather for old, vintage furniture that either someone has left on the side of the road or that she finds at garage sales,  or vintage shops and turns them into something "new." It may be someone's trash, but to her it is treasure.

I have done a few of my own pieces, such as, my writing desk and my little step stool, but my friend has painted and distressed I don't even know how many pieces. She either uses old paint that she has lying around the house, makes her own paint and just recently she has tested and used Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint.

I honestly can not wait to try out the milk paint as well! I have made my own and have wanted to try Annie Sloan's Chalk Paint too, but it has a steep price tag!!

Anyway, I wanted to share my friend's creations. She also sells her furniture, so if you are interested in something or are looking for something in particular message me or comment below. For living in North Carolina, the furniture state, we can surely dig in and find something and turn it into something new!

I believe she used flow blue,  correct me if I am wrong Sue!!

I just threw this one in here. This is the writing desk that I painted myself and that is in my current office. You should've seen this desk before....

So, have any of you brought trash to treasure? I would love to hear what you've made beautiful again. Feel free to share pictures too!
