Grandpa’s Gift

When Kyla contacted me about doing this cabinet, and I heard the story behind it, I absolutely had to do it for her!

This was made by her grandfather from the crib she used to sleep in as a baby and he had made it for her when she was a young girl…what a wonderful gift from a grandfather to his granddaughter.  Kyla requested a grey/blue colour to update it so she could use it in her decor.  I used a custom colour mixed from ASCP Paris Grey, Old White and Duck Egg Blue.

While I was painting, I couldn’t stop thinking of how much joy he must have felt while building this, and how special it must be to her.  This is definitely a piece that will be passed down.

I was so happy to do this for you Kyla!

Abbey’s Antique White Bedroom

Abbey is a lucky little girl.  A friend GAVE this set to her mom Sarah…wow, what a nice friend!  Sarah and the family are moving today to a cottage on 12 acres and this set will be put in a bedroom that has pine walls.  It is going to look wonderful!  Sarah knew she wanted it white for that fresh clean look.  

I can’t wait to see pictures of the set @ home.  Thanks Sarah and family for letting me do such an important piece!  

Here are some before and afters.
