Hi, I'm Suzanne and I'm a stay at home mother to three. I have started my own vintage furniture business and am writing this blog to document its journey from idea to reality. My favorite things include my Matthew, Ella and Sophie, my handsome husband and all things PAINT! Believe me, I am not an experienced business person but I do know how to sand, strip, paint and am a DIY queen, so please follow along as I navigate the ups and downs of The Painted Drawer. Please join in the fun and become a member or subscribe. Cheers!

The Eastern Shore and a French Country Table

I just returned from a quick beach trip with my kids to my brother and sister-in-law's house in East Ocean City, Maryland.  The kids had a great time with their cousins and Lulu, their new sweet kitten.  This was a very relaxing weekend of boardwalk fun, swimming in the ocean, cousins catching tadpoles and coffee on the porch!  I am staying out of the sun :) with my hat and sun umbrella.  Gone are the days of tanning on the beach!

The eastern shore of Maryland is truly beautiful.  I have added a few pictures of the fairytale house we found and a few more...

While I was away relaxing in my brother's porch, not a whole lot of work at The Painted Drawer was happening.  I was, however, able to finish the plank table before we left.  It is LOVELY in milk paint and glaze! Just beautiful!  It has french country, curvy iron legs with a gorgeous spindle running through them. The plank top is heavy and has great curved corners and the milk paint has given it a translucent, light finish. The whole thing turned out so well and I am really pleased. It is great when a project just comes together!  


  1. The table is wonderful. I am just loving the furniture you're painting. Is that Main Street in Berlin?

  2. Hi Suzanne, I am so happy that I found your blog. I love re-doing furniture among other things. Your site is lovely and I'm excited about following your creative journey. Please return the favor and follow me back. I have met so many delightful like minded blogging sisters and I get much enjoyment from the sharing of ideas.
    Have a wonderful week, Connie :)
