Box Love

  A redo of Plain Jane boxes.  I've been collecting boxes of all shapes and sizes.  Some jewelry boxes, some  plain wooden ones.  Many more to come.  Each with a distinctive new lease on life.  Now available in the Barn Studio of Groovy Green Designs....
 Silly upload problem.  These keep coming out sideways! Drat!

Meet "Dijon" A Spicy Mustard Yellow Desk



Before:  thrift store find... Much abused desk in need of some Groovy Green Attention...



After:  "Dijon" has a whole new outlook... Ready for some serious business.


Eclectic knobs for a whimsical look.  We wouldn't want to take ourselves too seriously afterall.


Thanks for looking. Your comments are always appreciated... Peace, Kelly

"The Heaven's" A Sideboard Makeover

AFTER
This piece had all the lines to become a truly unique piece.  When I started this project I had a completely different look in mind.  Once I found the Angel prints, I had an epiphany and went in a new direction and it evolved into this piece of artwork.  

Middle two drawers with a collage of the "heavens"  A little Michelangelo, Van Gogh....
There are two side doors with angels which started the whole ball rolling.

Top Detail.  The black and white area is from another piece I have placed back to back in my studio barn.Would love to move them around to take more flattering pictures. But oh my aching back!!!
Thanks for looking and remember to leave a comment.  Would love your feedback!!

This is a drop front antique desk that had some issues.  I have yet to replace the missing top but just wanted to get these photos out there.

AFTER
This guy received a layered paint job and Charlie Chaplin persona inside and out.



Closeup of Chaplin  on Front. Yes, he's holding a cane, my boys said it looked like he is peeing.Boys!







Inside cupboard detail... Love this mini chap.

Wednesday's Before and After Furniture Makeover

BEFORE
This buffet/sideboard needed a significant attitude adjustment.  I loved the detail on the front but the chipped and peeling veneer was an eyesore....  Ooh, I know just what this needs...

AFTER

Now with a sophisticated black and white themed look with some sassy red knobs, this could be a multipurpose piece... Think Bar, Buffet, etc etc. Meet my newest creation... "SPEAKEASY".



Detail on middle drawers.  Would you like Cabernet or Zin?

No bar is complete without the music...(side cabinet door details)
