Yesterday I showed you a couple of before and after projects that my friend Marian painted, and today I want to show you my favorite one that that she has painted lately. This little table was sort of shabby looking to begin with and was purchased at a garage sale. Marian has had this for awhile now but she said that she just did not know what to do with it. So after perusing the Internet she found this graphic of an old candy label I think she said, and got to work. This is entirely hand painted. She is quite a talented lady and I am lucky to have her as a friend!
Although she is terrific at painting and distressing and she can really make a piece look like it has a hundred years of patina on it, I think as far as painting furniture goes this is my favorite kind of work everything she does, in addition to her actual paintings on canvas.
What do you think? I love it!
This table as well as many other of Marian’s creations are for sale at:
Cypress Point Antique Mall
928 Diamond Springs Road Suite 122
Virginia Beach, Va 23455
There are many great booths at this little antique mall, including one that sells the most fabulous mid-century modern furniture if that is your style. Every time I go to visit her we stop in and I have never ever left empty handed. There is one booth that the man could have his own American picker show, he has so many interesting stories and so many fabulous things to buy!
