My last day in New Orleans. I spent this morning with my friend Vicki wandering around this amazing above ground graveyard. It was beautiful, inspiring, sacred, and tender. The textures, colors and sentiment in this place was moving to me. Pictures just don't do justice, but maybe you'll get something from them!

Vintage Rustic Solid Pine Annie Sloan Painted Small Kitchen Table
Painted in Annie Sloan 'Graphite' & finished off with a clear wax. The top has been sanded back to its original finish & waxed.
All the furniture pieces we work with have had a life before. They will never look brand new or have a factory-perfect finish. There will be imperfections and ageing, but that's what makes each one unique. If you are looking for a perfect item this may not be for you but if you love shabby chic it's a must.
We try to describe each item the best we can, accurately and honestly, however if we have missed anything or your not sure please ask as many questions as you like.
Thank you for looking & please take a look at our other items! #shabbychic #shabbyhome #anniesloan #rustic #vintage #graphite #modantiquesuk #handpainted
I FINALLY re-did my bedroom furniture, and did it all by myself!! Pretty damn proud of how it turned out!! 💛
I wasn't sure if I should post this one but what the heck.
I made this little hand-painted teacher appreciation sign back in 2015. I joined together some left over skirting board (you can see the line down the middle!), used an Annie Sloan acorn stencil and some chalk paint. I left it a little late to make (night before!) so it wasn't my best effort but I was pleased with how it turned out. Hand-painting cursive text is not me forte!
