{Giant EAT Signs} – FOR SALE!

Ever since i posted my original EAT sign made from reclaimed lumber, i have gotten lots of emails wondering if i will be making them available for sale.  I dont have any of the wood left that i made mine with, but i decided to try making another sign with new wood and painting it and it turned out super cute!!  I am working on a weathered stained finish and will be posting that one next week. So these will now be available in the Sweet Pickins Shop for sale!  You can choose from the 2 colors on the example pics, a color from my sample railings or any color of your choosing – more info on the shop page. Wouldn’t these make an awesome Christmas present for the person that has everything!

{Distressing with an electric sander}

{Distressing with an electric sander}

> I LOVE distressed furniture – to me, the more distressed the better.  Especially white/cream distressed pieces with a dark stain underneath that will show through.  That gets my heart pumpin.  Just so happens that i had a cute little antique desk in my stash with simple lines and a dark stain – perfect for some heavy distressin’. I painted the bottom half a creamy white, let it dry and then took my sander to it – very fun and so much easier and faster than sandpaper or a sanding block.  I try and distress this way whenever i can – it doesn’t look good on all furniture, it takes the right one, and this little desk fit the bill :) Sorry, no before pic – what was i thinking – that’s right… i wasn’t thinking – sometimes i just get so excited to paint and it would be soooo […]

{Craft Hutch}

{Craft Hutch}

> I got this computer armoire a while back and loved its cute curved top and raised panel doors right away.  BUT – it was a computer armoire, do people really use those anymore?  I don’t know?  But, i had an idea for it right away – how’s about a craft hutch?  If i didn’t have a dedicated craft room i definitely would use this piece :) I started with this…cute right?  Well cute bones anyways. Then  i gave it my blue/green oops paint color and heavily glazed it with a brown stain – i talked about glazing here.  AND, i get emails all the time about this color.  It was an oops paint and the nice guys @ Lowes blacked everything out on top of the can with a black marker.  I cant see a thing – i tried.  SO, when i get it matched – which i will […]

{Refinished dresser}

{Refinished dresser}

> This is just a little before and after pic to once again show “"THE POWER OF PAINT” – imagine me saying that with my superman cape on and in my deepest voice – ok…dont imagine that…i will just imagine it myself and say it over and over in my head :) Anyways…what was once a dated dresser in awesome shape – is now a super cute updated dresser all with a little black paint, light distressing and some blingy little knobs (hobby lobby in case you were wondering and i know that you were) The cute girl who purchased this is going to use it as a TV console – that is totally what i imagined it being used for due to its 3 middle drawers – i think they make it look more like a buffet/tv console rather than a dresser.  The 3 middle drawers look like they […]
