Tales of this Shopkeeper - This n that

I can't say this enough....I have great customers! Last month, one of my customers asked if I would like the "leftovers" from her latest home project.  "Could you use them in the shop?" she asked.  Me, being the "what could we make out of this" person said "yes".  Surely we would find something to do with them!
Here's what she did.....she collected vintage end tables in all sorts of sizes and had her dad cut them in half.  Then she built this fabulous shelving unit made from all the different sized tables.  It covers one wall in her office!  Really unique!  She had some halves left over so she brought them in.  Wish I had pictures of her office wall to show you.
Last night, we had finished several pieces and had time to paint these end table halves in emile, barcelona and greek blue and we mounted them on the wall.  Love the look! How fun!

And here are a couple of finished pieces for this week.....

Love coco with old white.....

Duck egg blue and old white.....

And my husbands latest project....distressed arles:)

Still loving the Annie Sloan Chalk Paint at Winsome and will be having another workshop on

  1. What a unique idea with the half-tables. How cute is THAT!?! I love the projects you are showing here- Great color choices for all your pieces- xo Diana

  2. Spending some time this morning with my coffee catching up with you, a great way to start the day!

  3. Oh, what a fun project! I just bought some Greek Blue ASCP and hope to get a little table painted this week. I love seeing the shade of it up on your wall.
