Working a couple projects this week that included this Oh-So-Sweet Vintage chair. It’s previous “re-do” was so sad with a very bad glaze top-coat. So, all she needed (yes, she, because some Europeans back in the day determined that CHAIR is a feminine noun) was a little love and redesign. Painted in Paint Couture The Collection Deep Lake, and reupholstered chair topper in vintage European Grain-sack, she is now ready to work hard in her forever home (and apparently my floors aren’t as clean as I thought so may have to put those wash buckets to use)🤪

I may be a convert...being a whiskey girl, Tequila hasn’t had much appeal to me until tonight. I enjoyed Casamigos tonight as a “shortie” shot (yes, I’m a cautious drinker...AKA lightweight) and a “sipper” to enjoy the flavor. Yummy! The Gran Patron will be saved for another day ($92 a SHOT, $700 bottle...but makes a great picture, yes?).
Gracious opulence indeed! Who wouldn’t want to spend a night, weekend ...forever in this Chateau de Gudanes bedroom? Are you following the renovations of this beautiful once 13th century fortress, turned castle, turned chateau? Bucket list to visit! Favorite thing in this space? I can’t pick one, but three. The bed, the walls, the overall HUGENESS of the open space and the potential of those views from that window! #graciousopulence#chateaudegudanes
My Top Five Antique and Vintage Shopping Spots in the DC Area -
Call it the Macy’s vs Gimbel effect (hopefully you all get that analogy) or just mere goodwill and sharing, but I am a huge supporter of other artisans, small business and yes, even my “competitors”…and I use that term loosely because I honestly don’t view them as such; we are all so different but yet the same if that makes sense?
The reason I’m sharing is not because I think I am an influencer, nor to get any “points” .... (CLICK LINK BELOW)
Who loves tassels? 🙋♀️ They aren’t just for home decor anymore...I’ve been seeing them on jewelry and clothing and am in love!
So, now I am excited to show you some of these Oohlong necklaces and bracelets coming to Rust and Refind for our next #rustandrefindartisanmarket. And, since a few of you have inquired about scarves, I also found these cute spring and summer ones to add to our growing inventory of items to help “dress you” in addition to our items that dress your home. These will make for great gifts, or get that little something for you while picking up something for the home. Limited quantities.
Oh goody goody goody! You can bet this DIY will be on my list to do! Who is with me? And I know a shop where you can by this amazing Saltwash.....come see us on Wednesday or our next #rustandrefindartisanmarket 5-7 April to get your Saltwash on!~ Let’s sssshhhhmeeeer that ugly brick! Great share and idea!
