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.

Grey or Gray?

Grey or Gray?  Last week was all about grey.  French Linen, Paris Grey, Revere Pewter... for some reason I had a very grey week.  They say it is the new neutral and I agree.  It is soothing in any room and a beautiful background that allows other colors to really pop.  Try putting a brightly colored flower arrangement on a grey dresser and you will see.

Here is The Painted Drawer's newest addition, this lovely French Linen dresser.  All the drawers open and close easily and have the original hardware (ring pulls which I love) and it's extra deep for wonderful storage.  I also love the detail and the slight curve to the bottom.

Shopping and the "Wow" Moment

Wow.  That is the word that kept shooting through my mind (well, that and unbelievable).

I spent a few hours the other afternoon window shopping.  I thought it would be interesting to compare my vintage finds to the more upscale furniture shops.  OK, follow me here -

My little table which just sold for $195.00 via Etsy (I love it!)...

A Beautiful Find

This post is all about beautiful things.  Lovely things. Things that make you pause for a moment and enjoy.

My latest beautiful find is this lovely, curvy, french side table.  Can you imagine my joy when I found this?  I knew it would be transformed with a coat of paint.  Oh, how I love!

On A Whim and Lucketts

Many of you know that The Painted Drawer opened a space in a store aptly named On A Whim in Lucketts, VA.  I spend every Thursday packing up my minivan to restock and refresh my items in The Painted Drawer's space.  Lucketts is known for all things shabby, distressed, vintage and beautiful.  On A Whim is pretty easy to pick out due to the bright pink,  polka dotted silo...
Here is what's inside the amazing store...just pretend you are on a shopping spree!
