About Me

My photo
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!

  1. This is a beautiful piece. The detailing is gorgeous and I love the color!

    1. Thank you so much! I really appreciate the positive feedback!

  2. Wow! I love both of these pieces! The sparkly knobs are awesome!

  3. love that dresser and its knobs! and the bench would make an awesome tv stand, i think!

  4. Beautiful! ♥ them both! Just found you at Kammy's Korner. I'm now a follower. Would love to have you stop by when you have a minute. Thanks for sharing. Blessings ~ Judy

    1. Thanks so much, Judy! Just became a follower of Addicted2HomeDecor. Congrats on getting your book published - what an accomplishment! Your newest fan, Suzanne

  5. they both are very pretty, but the chest of drawers with the sparkly pulls is beautiful!!!
    How do you ship these large pieces? greyhound? how much does it cost? :)


    1. Hi Gail,
      Sorry I'm so late to respond - no power for a week and then a beach weekend :) I actually use UShip and have been really pleased with the service. They provide very competitive quotes and the shippers that I have used so far have been on time and extremely reliable. I used Greyhound to ship a coffee table and was also really impressed with the quality of their service. I did, however, have the table professionally wrapped at UPS (which cost more than the shipping) but the buyer paid for it and it arrived safely so was good.

      Thanks for looking at my pieces and for the positive feedback!


  6. what a cute little cabinet! love the painted inside and the curvy shape!
    fyi, when you reply here, the person you are replying to doesn't see it unless they happen to come back to the blog post..... i never knew you replied to my earlier comment. just wanted to let you know!

  7. ooooh the stenciled cabinet. love its scale!

    looks fabulous. found you via MMS's party where i'm partying too. would love to have you as a follower.

    smiles and happy weekend.


  8. Oh my goodness these pieces are gorgeous! Great inspiration for me. Thanks so much for sharing on Tout It Tuesday. Hope to see you tomorrow.

  9. Your pieces are beautiful Suzanne! I really love the french country blue dresser. Do you remember what type/color of paint it was?

  10. Hi! Thanks so much for your sweet comment! The paint color is actually a Sherwin Williams color called Danube. I had them color match it for me at Home Depot into a Behr paint. I actually do still paint in latex sometimes :)
