Fantastic New Before's

Well, it's been a pretty thrilling week for me as the last two pieces of current inventory for Lather Creations are being picked up on Monday!  This means I'm working like mad on new pieces. Plus I got a call about a commission job on some old furniture someone is looking to freshen up, I can't wait to see it!

I did a bit of treasure hunting this week to stock up on new inventory and found these fab new finds that I plan on transforming in the coming weeks.

This pine TV stand is pretty blah as is, but it's solid and it's got great sliding doors just begging for some pretty paper detailing - don't you think?

These 3 wood tables have been coated in some sort of a weird textured paint but I love their little shape!  I think I'm going to do each one in a separate design so I can play around a bit with different colours and maybe even try some hand painted detailing...

I'm super excited about this children's size rocking chair, it's such a great find.  It's going to be even more exciting when it's painted in a vibrant colour any kid will love!

And another one of these ho-hum side tables we've seen a million times, this one's wood with great leg carving, so I'm looking forward to putting my stamp on it.

We're heading to Gimli for the weekend so I may have to pack up a project and bring it with me!  Lots of great 'afters' to show you in the near future - stay tuned!

Have a great night friends...


  1. Wow, congratulations! Things are really taking off. I can't wait to see the in progress and after shots.

  2. Thanks Amy! :) Just remember, no matter what happens - you'll always be my first customer and that truly has a special place in my heart!


  3. I've been following your blog for a little while now, and I love what you've been doing with the furniture. In fact you've inspired me so much that I went to the Salvation Army last week and bought a coffee table (it has the same legs as the side table you posted above) and I'm going paint it, make a cushion for the top and turn it into a bench! $35 sounds a lot more reasonable than the $299 they're asking for their benches at Home Sense...and I think it will be much nicer!
    Congrats on your business and your blog!

  4. Great stuff to work on...I wish I could get to the point where I had to actually look for more stuff to paint, my to-do pile is never ending, lol. Are you going to tackle some bigger pieces at some stage?

    Enjoy your weekend :)

  5. look slike some fun projects brewing! can't wait to see how they turn out!

  6. Happy New Friend Friday!

    My parents have a sidetable just like that. Looking forward to seeing what you do with it.

  7. You're on a roll, Lenore! Very exciting.

    The little rocking chair reminds me of one from my childhood. It had a special corner in my Grandma's living room - all her kids had used it, and then her grandkids. It was bright red and a little beat up, but still beautiful.


Thanks so much for stopping by, I love reading all your comments! If you have a specific question, please email me at lhume1@mts.net. XO Lenore
