OK fine, I admit it. I have a problem I love paint. I love sand paper, and really love making something that looks sort of tattered become beautiful again. So when I saw this Antique oak mission style dresser my heart fluttered. Strange, but it actually did.

The lighting isn't great so I will most likely have my dear husband drag this into the light so you can get a good sample of the color I have on it. But it is a soft green.


 It was hard to paint. I had the brush in my hand a sample of barn red and a sample
of the green. I am not sure what made me choose the green, but I am so glad I did.

SOLD!! :)

There is something to be said about having furniture that can last a century.

Found a charming turn of the century '2 over 4' drawer dresser with a tilt mirror. It has dove tail joints, bronze knobs, and completed with key holes on each drawer. Will be very special in someone's home.

Asking $180.00  SOLD

A new beginning

I type with my fingers covered in paint from my latest work. I love a new venture, and Spotted Hen Designs is just that, my new venture. I have been refinishing furniture for myself for years. I enjoy it so much that I am excited to now do it as a small business. It does seem as if I have become a hoarder of chairs, paint brushes, old shelves and other wonderful wood pieces, but I also feel like I am surrounded by art. I look forward to share that work here, with you. Please feel free to comment. To purchase, or make an order.

I am happy to find something for you, or refinish something that you already own. My best piece of advice when stepping into this world of wonderfully refinished furniture.... never be afraid of color.

The photos today include two turquoise caned seated chairs. They are the perfect addition to any dining set that needs a little brightening up. The pair is $50.00. SOLD :)
