Our awesome tree & Bryce!

Here's our tree and little ole Bryce sneaking down the stairs! He spent the day with us til Mom got there.

More new furniture to the shop!

Here are 2 new pieces we took to the shop Wed. The first one is an antique wash stand that I painted Robin's Egg Blue and the other is an antique sideboard that Terry painted creamy white then heavily distressed. Terry put new tops on both of them!

I haven't been doing a lot of painting because of the cold weather but we fixed up a paint booth in the garage with a wood stove! I've already tested it so not much painting will be going on in the basement this year! I am sharing a couple of things I got recently to "fix up".  The bed is awesome and really old!

Merry Christmas!

I thought I'd share some pictures of my crafts at one of the shows I did this Holiday season.

More pictures from the shop

Here are more pictures of the shop.

Sage green cabinet

I found this great old cabinet at my thrift store. Of course it was dark brown with issues but I took care of that. The doors slide to each side, with 2 shelves that I left the original stained color.

New furniture at the shop

We took some new pieces to the shop last Sunday. I love this awesome big china cabinet on legs! Great piece to display all your nice glassware or collectibles.

Bed painted and set up

My customer sent me this picture of the bed set up in her apartment! She even was able to get it to be higher so you could see all the detail. I'll have to try out her method and let you know how she did it!

Awesome white bed for my customer

I found this mahogany bed at an estate sale this fall. One of my customers had been looking for one so I let her see it. Of course I had to paint it creamy white!

Old Farm Table

The pictures don't do this table justice! I found this at an estate sale this summer and wanted to keep it! Unfortunately I have no where in my house to use it so here it is. I had the 2 chairs that seemed to go perfectly and Terry's tool totes, the sewing machine drawers and all the primitives just look awesome in the front of the shop!

More New Stuff!

Terry just finished this sewing machine table and I added the 2 ice cream parlor chairs to make a statement! The old market basket came from a shop in Lancaster.

New Items

Here's a neat stack of old suitcases on a vintage luggage stand, awesome antique mahogany bed, little cottage blue dresser and antique trunk.

New Pictures Of The Shop

We're still sprucing up the shop for the upcoming Holidays! Fall is finally here and we brought in straw & cornstalks to decorate. I didn't get much painted but I found lots of great smalls from my trip to Lancaster last week.

Just got back from a house cleanout.

Well to today was all work and no play! We had to clean out a townhouse today but hey, somebody's got to pay the bills! Looking forward to painting some furniture to deliver to the shop next week. Of course Saturday is tag sale & estate sale day so we'll see what we can find!

Welcome to the Old Painted Barn!

I am giving this a try! I am always busy doing something new! I thought I give the blog thing a try. I will be posting some pictures of the furniture that I paint.
