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!

Faded Farmhouse Charm and Harpers Ferry

The Painted Drawer...faded farmhouse charm.  What do you think?  I am busy coming up with ideas for my new logo design.  It pretty much sums up the "look" that I adore.  All of my pieces would fit perfectly in a gorgeous old farmhouse.  Not necessarily french or scandinavian, cottage or beach -  just any farmhouse, anywhere! 

My latest projects, the vintage sunburst chest of drawers and this lovely old chair I reupholstered in burlap, are quite "faded farmhouse"...

Honestly, other than completing the above projects and spending the day on Thursday at Lucketts, I was not able to concentrate on The Painted Drawer.  No-school days, an eight year old with an ear infection and a Girl Scout camping trip pretty much kept me busy.  We camped in Harpers Ferry, WV.  Love the historic old town!

Tents and sleeping bags, a campfire, smores, ghost stories and a three hour white water rafting trip down the Shenandoah and Potomac Rivers has left me a little tired :) Very, very fun and such a wonderful experience to share with my daughter.  The scenery we enjoyed was just breathtaking... 



My Ella is on the left with me behind her.  Oh, how I wish she could remain eleven years old forever!
