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.

French Beauty

My latest and greatest project - this gorgeous french dresser.  Painted in (gasp) latex with gold accents,  I must say it is one of my all time top faves!  I really wanted to keep this lovely piece as it looked soooooo good in my dining room.  However, I am trying to start a business and hence, off to Lucketts today!  If only all three of my kids didn't need braces...oh, the sacrifices a parent has to make :)

Here are a few pics...

I really love the detail in this dresser and had a blast bringing it back to life...

Here it is in Lucketts with the lovely vintage mirror I just finished on top.  This picture shows that when you are shopping in a store such as On A Whim, it can be difficult.  The pieces can get lost in the crowd.  Compare how it looks above to below and you get the idea.

I also finished the little gray and gold side tables that are in the back corner.  They are SO sweet!  The little white cabinet is another new addition.  How pretty on a table or attached to a wall...   

I am getting into the Christmas spirit and trying to make my space more festive...

Heading up to NYC tomorrow.  My newest niece was born on Tuesday - welcome to the world little Catherine Rose!  I can't wait to introduce her to her cousins!  Always so exciting to add a member to the family :)  

Have a great weekend!
