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!

French Blue

I love how each vintage piece is a true one of a kind gem.  This one in particular.
The top has been refinished with a rich, dark stain. The bottom is in the true Annie Sloan french blue, Provence and painted to show off all of its detail work. I then dark waxed it for a super smooth finish. Swoon!

"What a depressing garden" you are thinking right now.  Yes, it is.  Please, spring arrive so I can plant some flowers!

I worked on this today as I am - gasp - out of Old White to finish my dining room chairs!  Can you imagine - like a baker without flour :)  Celeste will come to my aid tomorrow and bring me more paint.
