It's A Sale

Hope you all had a good weekend!  
It got bitter cold here, so I focused on some indoor activities - Catching Fire movie with 4 teenage girls, cheering my Buckeyes to victory by the fire and declaring a pajama day on Sunday - perfection.

Of course, like everyone else, I should have planned my Thanksgiving meal, prepped a bit, finished some projects and the list goes on, but that's what today and tomorrow are for.

While I am gearing up for a yummy dinner on Thursday, I am also focused on Black Friday and Small Business Saturday.  We will be open 9-3 with great deals!

We are putting ALL furniture on sale.









If you have your eye on something, now is the time to shop!
I plan to pop in this week with a few more goodies, before we open on Friday morning.  

Hours this week:
Wednesday & Thursday CLOSED
Friday 9 - 3
Saturday 9 - 3

Have a great & productive Monday!

Shoppe Updates

Happy Friday!

What a great week! I had a wonderful group of ladies for our Beginning to Paint Workshop on Tuesday.  They were fun, interesting and so very eager to start their home projects.  They re-energized me as well.


We even played with some Organza.
Amazing shimmer!

We are SOLD OUT for the remainder of 2013 Beginner Workshops.  However, just email me and I will consider adding another vintagerestyled@gmail.com.  I have also made an awesome workshop line up for January!  Will share in early December.
**************************************************************************
While I was at the shoppe, I restyled a few areas, brought in more goodies and made a few things as well.  I will let the pictures show you some updates.



Perfect sled for the front door!

Be Our Guest

Hello All,

Before I had my first daughter 13 years ago, I was a marketing director for shopping malls.  I remember the craziness of holiday season.  Our holiday was planned in August but November 1st marked the beginning of long hours, decor set up and many sleepless nights.

The last 13 holiday seasons have been calm in comparison.

Now I find myself back in the thick of the holidays in a retail setting.  The good thing is, the hours are manageable, the pace busy-not crazy and it's been a learning experience thus far.

I am committed to making this holiday season as enjoyable as possible both in and out of the shoppe.

When you come to shop, browse with a hot cup of coffee, tea or cocoa.  
Just relax and enjoy the experience.


Pop one of these yummies in your cocoa.  Marshmallows with crushed candy canes, will add a little something to your day.  Daughter #2 and I made these to entice a friend who was training for her first 5K, to run to the shoppe!  Don't worry, you do not need to run to the shoppe.

We have added Vintage Restyled & More Gift Certificates - they make great gifts, especially for the painter on your list!

We have simple gift bags and tissue that will allow you to give the perfect gift, 
already complete when you leave.

Our hours are manageable for our busy lives.  
However, we will adjust as the season indicates we should.

Next Week:  Wednesday before Thanksgiving   CLOSED
                     Thanksgiving    CLOSED
                      Friday, November 29     9:00 - 3:00
                     Saturday - SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY Open 9:00 - 3:00

We will run many specials and giveaways on Friday and Saturday next week!  
We will reward you for shopping small and local.

The plans are in place to make this an enjoyable season for All.

Hope you'll join us!

Open today 12:00 - 7:00
Ugly Christmas Sweaters 5:00 -7:00!

Confederate Grey Dresser

It has been a busy few weeks at Vintage Restyled as the holiday season approaches.  I have been moving furniture in and out of the shoppe and am behind on sharing.

I recently finished a custom piece for a young lady.  Photos to come in another post.  I fell in love with the color choice and the finish.  I loved it so, that I attacked a dresser the same way.

She was pretty and beat up in spots.  She has little keyholes and lots of useful deep drawer space.  I had to have her.

But I absolutely love her new look.

A little bit distressed, a little bit manly and a whole lot of love for this new look!



This baby is finished in Confederate Grey with a dark brown wax.  Both from the Maison Blanche Antique Furniture Paint line that we carry in the shoppe.

The finish is a bit metal looking.  It's unique and will work in any decor perfectly.

She is in the shoppe!

I am teaching a paint class today! I'm pretty excited to share the wonderful line of Maison Blanche with the ladies.  Then we will restock and open our doors tomorrow.
11-5 Wednesday
12-7 Thursday
11-5 Friday
11-5 Friday

Swing in, we would love to see you!

The Uglier the Better

It's that time!


Oh yeah - Ugly Holiday Sweaters!

A few years ago our family went to an Ugly Christmas Sweater party.  It was a blast.  We even sported matching outfits - a major feat.  

Look what Michelle will be bringing on Thursday. 
Now you can match too!

Even if you don't have an ugly Christmas sweater party on the agenda, you can sport one of these just for fun.  See how people react as you sport it in church, the grocery, etc.  
You could even wear it when your'e with the kiddos, and totally embarrass them!

Michelle will have a large selection this Thursday evening, 5:00-7:00.


Join us!

Before & After Dresser

Before we could move in a few trees and other holiday goodies we needed to bring in new furnishings. With the holidays in view, I was drawn to Cerise - a warm, beautiful red.

I recently finished this cutie and wanted to build a vignette around it.


I pulled this dated piece out of the garage.
The hardware was original, the legs are dainty and the wooden wheels had me!  She was just ugly.
 No prep, just 2 coats of Cerise.
 Light Brown wax on the whole piece and Dark Brown wax on the details.

There they sit together in the window.  Just the pop of holiday cheer I envisioned.

Every room can accommodate a touch of red.

Have a great day!
