Oooh la la silver glam vanity

OMG! I am in love with my newest creation. A silver Chic Glam Antique Vanity Dressing table. Ive seen some wonderful distressed silver and mirrored pieces in catalogs and magazines and thought WOW, i wanna do that one day.....well now i love it and want to do another. Maybe an entire bedroom suite? Will defiantly do a dresser real soon. I find myself at the new year wanting to try new things. I've done a some french blue and french gray pieces as well. A few already sold rather quickly. check them out at my Etsy store http://www.vintagechicfurniture.etsy.com/ . i hope you love this and I hope to blog a little more this year....a new chenille bedspread and roses slip covered sofa to come soon....

Shabby Chic Chenille Bedspread and Rose Slip Covered Sofas

I had the pleasure of making not 1, but 2 fabulous chenille slip covered sofas all done with wonderful vintage chenille bedspreads, different pretty rose fabrics and vintage pom pom and brush fringe trims for a wonderful client in Washington D C.
What a wonderful Etsy customer. In fact, she has been my biggest and best Etsy customer, ever!! She bought a bunch of items from me, 2 custom sofas, a china cabinet, a dresser, and armoire, a Victorian settee, 2 nightstands, 2 mirrors, and a lovely tole roses quilt rack. She is a dream customer, come true.
My friend was good enough to take a u haul to her, deliver and set up all her new lovely items. Since he is also a professional photographer ( Wes Bennett, Albany NY, the same photographer that got me on the front cover of Life At Home Magazine) he photoed her lovely new sofas once they were set up in her living room. How beautiful they look. Its not very often that I get to see pieces i have made in customers homes. What a pleasure. They look so wonderful. It brings me great happiness and is so rewarding. She is thrilled and it thrills me to make someone so happy with the things i make that are so close to my heart and and I enjoy so much creating. I love this new found area of speciality of slip covering sofas and hope to make many more in the future. I hope you love these as much as i do. enjoy looking at them and be sure to visit my Etsy store http://www.vintagechicfurniture.etsy.com/ I would be happy to create something special for you as well. have a happy day :-) Donna Thomas Vintage Chic Furniture Schenectady NY.
