I love what you can do with paint! That green chair that was then made over in white is AMAZING!

Wow, such wonderful pieces and great transformations. Hugs, Marty

I love the transformation paint and elbow grease can do together.
The green mid-century chair of course...
and the desk/table with the darker stained top... looks fantastic.
I really like the cupboard painted white and the chunky details on that piece.

wow, you have been busy! I took a break from unpacking and saw the before and after lamp and came back to leave a comment and you have another post full of projects. I always love a good before and after! Amazing what a little paint and a good eye can do! Love it all!

They all look so pretty! Fine job there!

Daniela @Frugal Aint Cheap said...

Love how you are incorporating more white! I didn't use to have white furnitures, but in the last couple of years I have fallen in love with thite!

Revi said...

Though my head has grown in the time I've read all your lovely comments, I must say this work has been done within the past 9 months...I'm not as prolific as I'd like to be!
Thanks for your kind words anyway. :)

outjunking said...

You have stayed true to the vision you had. It is looking really nice.

lynn said...

Clara said...

You've done a fabulous job. I especially LOVE the trunk. I have one similar and am going to try that will it.

Polly said...

Loving all these transformations! And I love thrifting too! Paint really gives new life to stuff!


Tracey Peters said...

Just found your blog today, love it love it love it. I'm so intimidated with painting furniture, but so inspired to give it a try after seeing your treasures!

I just joined the blogging world, hope to have a blog as beautiful as yours one day!


Tina@WhatWeKeep said...

Progress is still progress, my friend!
Your pieces look wonderful.
I will miss the green chair, though!
My favorite is the little 7 table. It's my lucky number. ;)

Deidre said...

You've been BUSY! Is your new paint all gone yet? Have you had to get more? Hope you're having fun with all the transformations. It was fun seeing what you've done!

Love your talent!

Marsha said...

Wow! You have been a busy girl! I remember when I was reading your blog and you were painting the green box /chest-- I can remember thinking that I wish you had some chalk paint . You go girl!

Earnestine Kettering said...

Oh, I just can't get enough of these furniture transformations, Revi, especially the second transformation of pulpit chair! That proves that you should not stop until it's more beautiful than beautiful! I hope this remodeling of yours would serve as an inspiration to others as well.

Mobilya said...

The only word I wanted to tell you what you do, I suppose I can say is just perfect. This should be a piece of furniture to create from scratch.

The French Hen's Nest said...

Love the before and after photos. That sofa/library table is gorgeous! All of your pieces turned out great. that trunk looks like so much work. What did you use to remove the paint?

We just found you at Twigg Studios Monday party and we are joining you. Hope you will visit us and consider joining.
