Little Joe

As a child, "Little Women" was one of my favorite books. That's why I have named her "Joe." I wish I had this little beauty then. Just picture yourself as a little girl reading your favorite book rocking away on her.

"After"
Let me remind you of what she looked like "before"

It pained me some to paint an Antique, but I could see modern beauty in her as white.


I did some light distressing on the edges since she is an Antique:-) But I didn't want to much. I had planed on putting a glaze on her but the fabric I chose didn't really seem to be a fit with glaze??





I am soooooo in LOVE with little "Joe"
I will be selling her though:-( Next week I will be posting where I plan on selling all my refurbished furniture. And I will post a tutorial of the transformation of her.
~ Enjoy ~

  2. You did a great job with your chair! It's beautiful. I love the damask fabric! I adore all damasks but hadn't seen the green and black combination before. Very pretty!
