As Pretty As I could Make Them...

I now have the antique crib settee and the washstand below listed.
I don't think I could have given the bed up but I have a wicker one
that's a little larger (I think) that I'm going to keep. I think I
previously about how thrilled I was to find it in my hubby's shed
when all this time I thought he had sold my bed at Canton. I just love
these as settees - isn't it inviting and just... divine?!?!?

The washstand , you can see a bit below,
is in whisper soft pink ( so hard to
photograph because, truly, it's barely there). Outside
in the Texas sun, it's so pale that it appears white - not
pink at all. I did something new with the colors and it's
so "fresh". I whitewashed the trim in the palest apple
green, very diluted, and it's amazing how much doing that
added to it.

Here's a peek at a few pretties I've listed -I hope you enjoy seeing them - some are really previews because I don't have e'thing listed yet.

Since there is much, much more to be listed (I've been painting lots of furniture) I'm going to add an eBay To Go Link to my auctions on the side bar.

Hi Devonia. I've also added you to my 'Links worth Checking Out'.

What a nice dresser and chest. I feel a little whimsical when I see such lovely things.
