Danish Modern

Whoda thought, that I would have ever bought Danish Modern furniture.

This is the furniture I have snubbed for years.

But now I'm seeing it on blogs and websites and design shop..

So of course I had to get in on it.

I bought this hutch, the sever below and a table and six chairs. Yes of course I'm going to paint it. I'm useing ASCP in paris gray, as seen on the server.

Not sure if I should destressed it on the edges or not...what would you do?
( you can get your chalk paint here)

I'm going to use a gloss poly on it, to make it shine like glass.

This fabulous fabric is what I'm putting on the 6 dining charis

Can't wait to show you all the finished product, at this point I'm just not sure if I need to add a shabby twist on it and destress the edges or not. This could very well keep me up tonight, because tomorrow I have to destress it or poly it, I'm so torn on what to do...

Tea Anyone







Lots and Lots of tea cups and saucers..

Have you ever been to an auction that the auctioneer didn't care about making money. well I was the other day, the only thing this auctioneer wanted to do is get done and go home..

At most auctions the auctioneer would have sold these tea cups & saucers one at a time since they are marked England and Germany, not this guy he had a container full of the cups and another container full of the saucers, so of course I had to buy booth containers, couldn't sale cups with out the saucers..

The Vintage Attic's room @ Valley Antiques in Funkstown is full of them and I'm bringing more over this week.

If you have a tea house or just like to have tea partys or maybe you collect them, don't wait to long because they are priced to sale!!

I Sure Could Use Your Help

I was telling my husband one day that when I was a little girl I always wanted a doll house, but never got one.
So that year for Christmas he got me this doll house, I was so excited, I just couldn't believe he listen. Never did I think he would get me one.
So he gave me 3 years to finish it, (because he knows how busy I am) because he knows I take on so many projects at one time and it takes me for ever to finish one. Ouch that hurt to say..

What happen to putting the toys together on Christmas Eve, just sayin..


So here we are about 5 years later and I brought it up from the basement and set it in my front room that I want painted before Christmas. So in order to paint my room this doll house has to be finished.

The next step is to paint the doll house before adding the windows and molding.

What I need is your help with, what colors to paint it!

I need the main color of the house,

the window trim color, and

the color for the molding.

So you Fabulous decorators out there in blogland please help.

This could take me months to decide on a color without some input,
not to mention how happy my hubby would be to see this finished.

Thank you Thank you in advance..
