Thomasville Twin End Tables

These matching end tables are so lovely! They are a 1966 Thomasville set, each with 1 drawer and a bottom cabinet. They are made of solid wood and weigh about 30 lbs each.

This set would be beautiful used as sofa tables in the living room or as roomy and stylish bedside tables. Or separate them in your home as individual accent pieces!

The table tops were completely stripped, sanded, and stained to highlight the beautiful wood grain. The sides of each table were primed with white high quality chalk paint and brought back to life with a summery coral eggshell latex paint. The color is gorgeous! It is bright enough to be the focal point of the room, but can easily be styled with most other colors!

To ensure durability, the table tops were sealed with two coats of semi-gloss polyacrylic. The painted areas of these pieces have been waxed and buffed with clear furniture wax. Gold gilding wax was then used to add another element of depth and highlight the beautiful intricate hardware. All hardware is original.

Distressed Feather Accent Table

I am in LOVE with this table! It is a solid wood table with clean lines and fun, unexpected details. After a heavy sand, it was painted with high quality blue chalk paint and then layered with a blend of white chalk paint. The heavy distressing allows the beautiful blue to peek through! Each flat panel (all sides) has been decoupaged with fine decorative feather paper adding color and excitement! The table top has great texture due to some crackling and the presence of all of the different “white” tones. To ensure durability, the table top was sealed with water-based polyacrylic and then waxed to add water resistance. The rest of the table was waxed with clear furniture wax.

Use this beauty as your coffee table in your living room, a bedside table, or as a statement piece in your entry way. The neutral white allows this design to compliment any color scheme, but the feathers still add interest and sass!

Dimensions: 25”Lx25”Wx22.5”H

Vintage Floral Desk

This desk is an absolute show stopper! It is a very heavy solid wood piece with eye catching intricate detailing. While it is a beautiful decorative piece, the durable desktop and 7 drawers make it very much a working desk, as well!

This piece was primed using a Pure White Chalk Paint and then painted pale blue using eggshell latex paint. This is a custom color and you wont find it anywhere else! The desktop and top drawers were completely stripped and have been stained gray to highlight the wood grain and character. The painted areas of this desk have been sealed using clear furniture wax and the stained wood areas have been treated with high gloss polyacrylic to allow for very easy care and clean up.
Five of the seven drawers have been decoupaged with an elegant floral decorative paper. These drawers have also been sealed with polyacrylic to ensure durability and easy care. All hardware is original.
One of my favorite elements of this desk is the caster feet! Six of the eight are wooden and two are metal. They are all in working condition making this detail not only stunning, but functional as well.

Dimensions: 49”Lx18”Wx31.5”H

Rustic Kitchen Hutch

This hutch is such a beautiful and unique piece! It is made of very heavy and sturdy solid wood. To add to the rustic charm, the cabinet doors are detailed with chicken wire. My favorite element is the fold out desk with leather inlay!

While you can absolutely use this as a workspace, it would be even better as a decorative statement piece in your kitchen, dining room, or foyer! Keep the desk closed to save space or display it open to showcase family photos.

Closed Desk Dimensions: 31.5”Lx16.5”Wx53”H
Open Desk Dimensions: 31.5”Lx25”Wx53”H

Vintage Seth Thomas Butcher Block Clock

This is a great looking Seth Thomas clock! This clock dates back to the 1970s, so the wood shows a decent amount of wear. This just adds to the history and retro feel! It is made of maple that has been stained a darker walnut color. When I obtained this piece, the original hands were missing, so the gold tone hands are a replacement. This handsome clock is in perfect working condition! It requires one AA battery, which is included with purchase.

Dimensions: 11”L X 11”W X 1.25”D

Thomasville Console Table

I am absolutely in love with this table! It is a 7 foot long 1966 Thomasville dresser with 9 drawers. It is in near perfect vintage condition! This unit is made of solid wood and weighs over 200lbs.

Use this showstopper as your TV stand, as the buffet table in your dining room, or keep it all to yourself as the dresser in your bedroom. This beautiful console table is as versatile as it is gorgeous.

The table top was completely stripped, sanded, and stained to highlight the beautiful wood grain. The bottom was primed with white high quality chalk paint and brought back to life with a bright lime eggshell latex paint. The color is to die for! It is bright enough to be the focal point of the room, but can easily be styled with most other colors!

To ensure durability, the table top was sealed with two coats of semi-gloss polyacrylic. The painted areas of this console have been waxed and buffed with clear furniture wax. Gold gilding wax was then used to outline the drawers and highlight the beautiful wood detailing. All hardware is original.

What is "Mommom's Desk"?

My great grandmother, Florence (lovingly referred to as "Mommom"), was an amazing artist. She started painting when she was in her thirties to keep her mind occupied while her two sons were away at war and didn’t stop until the day she passed away at 102 years old. I have always told myself that her artistic talent was passed down to me. Whether I am right or not, I share her passion of art and creating.

When my Mommom passed away, my dad found a desk and matching drawer set that she had painted. He gave it to me and I have been using it ever since. It is where I do a lot of my researching, painting, crafting, and now blogging. I love the character it possesses and the memory of her that goes along with it. Best of all, when you open two of the three drawers, I can, to this day, smell her potpourri.
