I'm really having a hard time...
juggling actually painting furniture and vintage finds
and then putting the brushes down and going to the computer and posting about it!
(well...truth be told, I love painting more)
they are both creative and necessary parts of what I do...
with pressure involved in keeping up with each one.
It's a good pressure most of the time,
if there really is such a thing!
Now lets amp it up a bit with CerroHome moving into a new, additional retail space!
I've been at Leaping Lotus in the Cedros Design District in Solana Beach
for the last year and a half...love it here!
Now I'm adding a second retail space at the
Urban Barn in Escondido CA...more on this once the move is made.
So...all last week was spent painting new furniture finds to put into both shops...
while getting ready for holiday shoppers too!
Here's a peek of what I've been working on
A great little chair frame that was too cool all on its own,
just needed some ribbon to French it up.
A ball and claw foot oak table takes on a new color.
A ticking stripe coffee table in Paris & Country Greys
Beloved Chalk Paint and stencil can be found at
Love this old Singer sewing cabinet!
I added an inset to the inside machine cavity,
now it can be used as a little writing table, bar or extra surface space.
Oak in its past life...
now this little marble top cabinet
is Country grey with vintage post card decoupage.
Leather top side table in Versailles green
with my favorite "Spring Time in Paris"
Royal Design Studio stencil.
Tray side table with a traditional
Asian fabric surface.
A buffet I did awhile back...though didn't feel it was ever quite done...
adding the birds in flight finally finished it off.
Now with all that out of the way...
painting this fabulous buy at my favorite consignment shop.
5 piece, Ethan Allen, 7'tall x 12' wide wall unit...
I'm very happy with that!
It will be a beautiful turquoise inside + re stained espresso on the outside
It will be for purchase and to show my vintage finds off at Urban Barn.
More on all that later on...stay tuned for the results of both!
and I welcome you to speak up and comment,
let me know someones listening out there so I know this creative pressure is worth it!
