I’ve been MIA the last couple of weeks and I just have to say, you guys are the best – I’m so excited to be back! Thanks for your patience while I switched from my old PC to my new iMac (it’s a dreamy machine!) and restyled the website. I’ve been putting off updating Salvaged Inspirations for the last year or so. I’m not ‘really’ a web developer or coder, but at one point I did build websites for small businesses. The thing is – I’m rusty. What a developer can pull off in 3-4 days may take me 2 weeks…and it pretty much did…lol.
But all is good.
It was A LOT of work and there’s still some tweaking to do, but I couldn’t be more thrilled with how everything turned out. The goal was to give the SI Blog a fresh clean look and make it easy for you to navigate and read. I hope I’ve accomplished this and I’d love to hear what you think. 🙂
So here’s more exciting news!
General Finishes has flattered and humbled the heck out of me by featuring me as June’s Blogger of the Month , so I’ll be showcasing a few furniture re-do’s using their amazing products. I have a few interesting pieces in mind and can’t wait to share them with you.
To kick things off, here’s a client’s restyled vintage tea cart.
If you’re following me on Facebook, you may have seen the ‘before’ when Richelle first brought me this charming piece.
It’s her hubby’s grandmas and like most vintage pieces, it’s held up exceptionally well over the years. The wooden wheels are missing and we repaired the castor wheels – but this tea cart is sturdy and will hopefully stay in her family for another 80 years.
It makes for a nostalgic piece with a story to tell.
Richelle purchased this 1930’s ‘Linen’ China Cabinet a few months back and wanted her tea cart to match. The China Cabinet was painted in General Finishes ‘Linen’, lightly distressed and top coated in GF High Performance Satin. We matched the color and sheen on her vintage tea cart and now it looks clean, classic and amazing!
This piece was such a pleasure to work on because I’ve ALWAYS wanted to restyle an antique tea cart. As an added bonus, I feel the biggest compliment a client can give is their repeat business. Thanks Richelle!
I’d love to hear from you… it’s been a while! Feel free to chime in about the website, tea cart or ANYTHING at all! I missed you! x
Have an amazing day!
