I have created some new things in Between The Weeds, mainly furniture. Honestly it is exciting running the saws to make farmhouse furnishings again. It is distressed, simple lines, handmade and crafted with found wood re-purposed bits and pieces and each one unique one of a kind. I am not mass producing each work but staying with the handmade quality of time-worn masters (not that I am one). Everything is functional and all you need is a little imagination to see the possibilities of this new work.
I have also completed two custom pieces of painted furniture. The first is an old end table that had been damaged on the top. I made the repairs and painted it with a subdued palette and checker board top gives a whimsical touch. The second is a small chest of drawers, it has been all striped out. I love the color combo and the dark teal color is called Nile by Ralph Lauren. I had it custom mixed in a Benjamin Moore oil based paint. I have a tall cabinet I am painting in Nile. Can not wait to finish.
If you are in the area and want something different for your farmhouse painted home please stop in and check out these two whimsical beauties. Vintage painted farmhouse is a fun way to decorate and you only need a few painted pieces to make an impact or statement.
