A LIL CHIPPY MAKES A GREAT SHABBY - chippy french nightstands

I just finished up a fun pair of bedside tables.

I bought a broken antique table, ... okay let me start that again.
I paid money for a dozen little pieces of wood that used to be a table with pretty legs.
There was no top and in the end I was fortunate that I found all the other pieces but
I didn't know when I handed the money over.

The body of these nightstands were a part of a cute set I purchased on Craig's list.
Not my usual playground but they worked perfectly for my plans. 


The ceramic and metal knobs I brought back from our time on vacation.

The drawers have a great decorative arched detail on the face.

This pair of chippy and shabby bedside tables is currently listed in the SHOWROOM
with price and dimensions.
You can also find a side by side before and after pic here.

DJS Presents: Woof Woof Wedding

DJS Events is proud to present its most unique charity fundraising event of the season given by Twenty Four Fifth!
Please join us for an evening of puppy love and charitable good will for the commitment of Piper Strain (Chihuahua), canine daughter of Dawn Strain and Rudy Holesek, and Boocifer (Boo Boo) Karl (Chihuahua/Pomeranian), canine son of Orfeh and Andy Karl.  The celebration will begin at 7:00pm sharp as Piper and Boocifer become joined in the happy state of doggie matrimony.
The service is followed by hors d'oeuvres. The celebration given by Twenty Four Fifth will feature additional entertainment, a silent auction, raffle and more!
Many people ask the question, why a dog wedding? Well, just as humans need companionship to survive so do animals. In our New York society, we treat our pets to socialization opportunities like “doggie daycare,” dog parks and doggie play dates, so, why not a wedding?
When we asked veterinary expert Amy I. Attas, V.M.D. her opinion of this event, she said, “I applaud DJS Events for promoting “dog weddings.”  While I don’t think dogs need to be “legally married” and their unions can be the same sex, male or female, I believe dogs with dog companions are happier and, in my experience, healthier as well.  Dogs are, by nature, social animals and their lives are enriched by having another dog in their lives."
So it’s agreed, the “Woof Woof Wedding” sets a standard for canine companionship that’s socially sound and will raise money for the outstanding work of North Shore Animal League America and Waggytail Rescue.  Of course, we promise to amaze you with a spectacular venue, delicious food, outrageous d├ęcor and an all-around great time!  Don’t miss this one-of-a kind event.

TOGETHER WE CAN HANDLE IT - cane console table

It`s hard getting back into work when you have been away from it for a long period.
Both George and I are trying to recall this feeling from past years but it seems different
this time around. Not only have we had several negatives come up since our return home
but we also spent our entire Easter weekend sick in bed.
Seriously not a single chocolate bunny or egg has been seen or enjoyed around here.

Even being sick has not kept me completely down as I`ve been able
to bring this newly completed console table to you. 

Fortunately I didn`t have to build anything but I can tell you,
painting and waxing open designed furniture takes a great deal of time, product,
attention to detail, and great patience. 

It has 2 removable glass panels in the top surface,
and 2 perfect caned panels on the bottom.

This is a vintage solid wood piece of furniture.

This Cane Console Table is listed on the SHOWROOM page with dimensions and price.

Get it before I decide to keep it!

MODERN CONVENIENCE - french provincial 4 drawer dresser

George has loved this dresser for quite some time but alas,
if you love something you must set it free. 

It was painted in old white and distressed to give it more age than it actually has.

We had bought both this dresser and a matching desk,
when we moved in together.
The desk was painted and sold long ago, (stop pouting Elinor)

But in the last few months once it was clear it was going to have to find a new home
the dresser became another victim to Chalk Paint.

This dresser has pretty provincial handles and the modern convenience of roller drawers. 

It is currently listed on the SHOWROOM page with dimesions and price.

You can find the side by side before and after here

one antique rolling chair in charcoal and one vintage upholstered chair in bright white.

There is the extra long dresser console,
