{Knocking them out...}

We've had a lot going on in our house lately.  We are getting rid of a lot of stuff to prepare for a yard sale & my mom who will be moving in on September 9th.  We are meeting my brother half way which is Tuscaloosa, AL to pick her up.  She was laid off from her job two months ago & we decided it was best for her to be here with us.  She is excited & I think a little nervous too.  She's never lived outside of Texas so it will be a huge change for her.  We are excited because it means Landry will get so spend quality time with one of her grandparents & it will help Ashley & I out tremendously.  We will actually be able to have a few date nights together & I can actually get organized with my business.  With all that said I've been getting quite a bit done lately with the crazy schedule I have.  

I finished up three more pieces since I last blogged.  I love all of them & one of them actually already sold before I even finished it.  That's pretty awesome! 

This beautiful bookcase got a coat of ASCP Louis Blue & Old White.
It was a beast to paint but it turned out gorgeous. 
It has legs that we took off so we could fit in our SUV & I'm trying to decide if I want to put them back on or add some old casters.  Decisions, decisions....

The original hardware was just some plain old brass knobs.  This piece was calling out for some a little fancier so she got these gorgeous glass knobs that we picked up from Lowe's.  It truly is amazing how you can drastically change the look and feel of a piece by changing the hardware.

This beautiful french provincial was steal off of CL.  It definitely needed a makeover though so she got a coat of ASCP Coco & French Linen on the bottom & Coco & Graphite with dark wax on the top.  

 I did a crackle finish using this from Faux Studio Designs.  I love the way it turned out.  It was kind of trial and error though to be honest. Next time I will most likely experiment on a piece of wood to get the desired texture I want rather than just jumping in feet first.  

The original hardware was gorgeous but need a fresh coat of ASCP in Old Ochre.  This piece is for sale & I'm hoping it will be gone soon so I don't find a space for it in our home!

This next piece is seriously one of my favorites!  
She sold before I was finished.  
Check out her legs!
Those are definitely whistle worthy!

 I am finishing up this piece today.  All it needs is the new hardware & to be buffed.  I seriously want to keep this one but she'll be moving on to her new home tomorrow.  

I will take pics once I'm completely done.  

This is the piece I'm working on now.  I love these tables are making a come back!

Well that's what I've been up to lately.  We are busy working on putting frames together too.  I am hoping to start painting those this week.  

I have to find a happy medium between the furniture & frames! 
I'm open to any suggestions!

Happy Monday!
