Last Year's Favorite Finds

The Painted Drawer started last February with a Dixie french provincial dresser my mother found in a thrift store.  Since then, I have had a lot of fun with many different pieces.  I thought to share a few of my favorite 2012 finds and hope to find many more in 2013!  

This chair I found on a curb in pieces.  After painting it in Old White and with a lot of glue and TLC, here she is (with Baxter modeling) -

My first sale was this dresser.  It went to Brooklyn, NY to be part of 
a new baby's nursery...

ooh la la...

Oh, Elmer.  I love the color and love the farmhouse feel -

When I saw this little table I knew it was special.  It is my favorite small table and I loved it -

The detailing in this one was divine and so much fun to bring out.  I also added my favorite sparkly pulls -

This old table was absolutely transformed after being painted in French Linen -

And, of course, my just finished caned chairs.  Now that the holiday madness has come and gone, these will be on Etsy soon!  My revolving decor continues for 2013!

2012 was such a learning experience.  I have met many wonderful people in the process of starting The Painted Drawer.  I can't wait to see what 2013 has in store!

Happy New Year!
