My Furniture Weakness

Do you have a type or style of furniture that you  have a hard time resisting?

Dressers, nightstands, coffee tables, china hutches, or mine… twin bed frames. especially when there are two!  I mean what is cuter then twin matching beds for little girls. Or boys for that matter.

I saw these today and just couldn’t walk away.  The details just cry out for some decorative milk paint..My instant thoughts are soft pale pink details with a creamy white body.. But  customers tend to just like white only.. So will the creative side or the business side win out on these? Any thoughts?

I think I have about 6 beds to paint…Maybe my end of the year goal for 2014 should be to finish all these beds.. I know I can’t buy anymore until I get some done.

I hope you are all having a good Sunday.. I’m going to.

May 21/22 buckets

I love old buckets and ladders:)
Seth found these at a old farm in Sebastopol. Now the hard part will be deciding which to sell at the store
Grateful for rusty buckets and rickety ladders
