A "Shabby Chic Glam" Vintage Makeover

Happy Monday Friends!!!

I have been so busy trying to get ready for VINTAGE BLISS MARKET 

here in St Louis, MO this upcoming weekend : June 20-21.  

Busy searching for "Just the right" inventory and Reviving each of my vintage pieces 

I plan to take to the show.  Not to mention all the while with my 19 month old 

foster daughter under my feet and on my lap constantly and my other

three children home for Summer Break... makes for a crazy couple of weeks!

  Being a Vintage Revivalist is not just about

buying and selling to me... I search for pieces that I like; meaning I like their lines and

shape and usually can envision in my head transformation before I get it home!!

That is what it is about for me... Putting my stamp on my pieces,  not just painting 

but creating something that reflects personality and this year I really

want to add a touch of whimsy and FUN for the show!!    Not wanting shoppers

to be tired of the same old same old, I decided I would shake things up a bit!

Here is the BEFORE photo... A nice Thomasville writing desk:

It has that old 60's or 70's speckled wood finish... Kind of boring on its own.

I love the shape of this piece, the sexy curves and possibilities!!!  

So I envisioned in a soft gray... I used Tritan Gray Chalk Paint, which is one of my signature

Chalk Paint colors that are only $10.00.  Fantastic coverage and great "seaside" colors.

You can contact me via Facebook to order yours today!!

What do you think?

This piece was a lot of fun to work with... I Love adding a touch of Glam

to my shabby chic projects!   Check out those sexy gold dipped legs.

I added new mirrored glass hardware.

I painted the interior  white and added chalk board doors to the interior

(don't mind this pic... those doors have been touched up with paint... I just snapped the photo
before I was complete!!)

I added these fun gold metallic painted stencils to the piece for an little extra!!

Now, for the fun!  I did not want just a regular chair for this:

  I took the ordinary Vintage Ladies Sitting Chair...

I went with a Modern and Funky look!

I think this is my favorite!!  I painted the entire chair in metallic Gold.

And reupholstered the seat in Faux Sheepskin!  

This is the best part of my job!!  I get to bring my vision

to others through my Vintage Revival business!!  

I cannot wait to take this any many more pieces to the show this weekend!!

Thank you so much for reading... and  stay tuned

for more of my Vintage Revival Reveals Soon!
