New Style Nightstands

I'm sorry that I have been slow to blog these couple of weeks but believe me I have been busy! Here is another quick project to tide you over...





Another friend of mine gave me these nightstands, I KNOW, I have great friends!
She bought them earlier this year, spray painted them Fuchsia then got sick of the color....Insert Ava Blake Creations...
Do you love my little paint dungeon?

19th Century Oak Cheval Mirror




A girlfriend of mine found this mirror and thought of me!

It's a 19th Century Oak Cheval Free Standing Mirror. I knew it needed a trip to rehab.....A new Shabby Modern look....

Aqua Antique Frames






Here were a couple of Brass/Gold Vintage Frames I sprayed Aqua Blue. SO in LOVE with this Blue right now!














I lightly rub over some Bronzer and it comes out instant Antique looking. SO beautiful and time worn.













A closer view.
The Bronzer picks up every detail on the frame.

Bar Trolley Re-Done

I have been busy.....


 AGAIN, I got SO excited to re-do it that I forgot to take a before picture! This is the only one I could find, it's on it's side at the top, Oak color.

This cart was obviously homemade by someone. It was made out of Plywood, with some sort of small stool legs on the in between, and it had a hand painted poorly done blurry Mountain Scene on the top....

We love these French Painted Tole Tables!!!
