Those of you who follow me know that i like to paint kids table and chair sets. This set was put together but the table seemed a little tall. Thanks to my husband, 1 and 1/2 inches was cut off the table legs to create this cute set.

I am using paint from my stash and came up with this ombré that kind is reminds me of a sunset!

Needs a little touch up and hopefully the bright colors will cheer you up during these trying times!

Keeping Safe staying indoors and trying to keep busy!

I found this old boring boxy jewelry box at a Goodwill weeks ago! It looked kind of masculine to me so I decided to “Pink” it up and added some resin flowers to give it a little interest. I also added the cute little feet for an added touch!

What do you think!

Staying home and painting. While I’m not posting these for sale due to social distancing on these extraordinary times, I thought I would give you a peek at what I have been up to.

You may have seen the cute striped pink and white table, then there is the pine and charcoal gray side table! Today I finished the natural wood top and white end table.

I love when local businesses support the community. Apex Pharmacy at 2380 Dixwell Avenue in Hamden has agreed to showcase and display some of the Upcylced and Re-loved furniture from “Chalk It Up by Linda”.

This little beauty is available for purchase at Apex:

This is a petite sized small side table measuring 21 inches high with a top measuring 13 x 15 inches.

This table made by the Bombay Company has been painted in black chalk paint and made into a little yet dramatic statement piece with its gorgeous checkered top.
The legs are sealed with a natural oil based finish and the top has two layers of a water resistant finish.

Please look at the dimensions again as this is smaller than an average side table. So if you need a bit of whimsy and space is tight, this would be perfect for you!

This is my current project with just a basecoat. I can’t wait to see what happens when I “drybrush” to highlight the carvings and then either dark wax or glaze to make it pop!

I need your help -Navy Blue

I usually do not post the entire piece in a sneak peek, but I need your help with this one.

This end table/ night stand was not in the greatest shape. After sanding down the top, a few minor repairs, it is now ready to be sealed.

Now this is where you come in, do I use the funky backplate behind the drawer pull or just the drawer pull?

I can’t make up my mind!

When my fellow furniture painters inspire me, it has to be a good thing, right?

Gina from Vintage Painted Pieces has posted a gorgeous chest of drawers that she revived with hemp oil, so I decided to try something new and experiment with this old side table.

Taking advantage of a day off where the sun actually was shining! It’s 45 degrees so not warm enough to paint outside, but I was able to strip off the finish and carefully sand the veneer on this table.

The photo shows the table with the finish stripped/sanded off and the top and side views once the hemp oil was used.

What do you think?

Measuring 26 inches high and 21 inches in diameter, this table has been sealed with a water resistant finish.

(SOLD) Painted Dresser with a Surprise!

This beautiful solid wood dresser has been given a new lease on life. Painted in a neutral shade of sage green, subtle highlights and antiquing glaze create depth and texture. The top has been stained a warm brown shade and the original drawer pulls have been painted a gold tone to complete the look.

This dresser has 6 deep drawers to provide plenty of storage...and have been decoupaged with a coordinating “peacock” fabric to surprise you as you open each drawer.

This dresser also sports 4 freely moving castors to easily move this.

Measuring 54 inches wide x 20 inches deep x 34 inches high, this dresser is solid and heavy... not like the particle board pieces you see in furniture stores today.
