Little Princess Vanity

Last weekend, all by myself,  I decided to brave the Flea Market down the street…There was only one piece of furniture…This wonderful little vanity…of course, it was not in the greatest shape…but, I saw the potential in her right away…I somehow managed to lug her to the car in two trips…(no one even offered to help…humph!) ….I wanted to start right away before I lost my vision…but, this nasty rain that we’ve been having on a daily basis lately, threw a curve in my game….I finally managed to finish her on this beautiful, sunny, and practically perfect day…I re-covered the little bench in a fun pink Paris scene…painted her with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Old White, distressed, then waxed her to a lovely finish…I think she is precious!! And fit for any little princess room…She also has a drawer and two side panels for jewelry or other trinkets and they are all lined with a green felt…This little Sweetheart is up for sale for $150












About The Old Cypress House

Mother-wife-friend-artist...I love to paint...I have always loved painting...I like to take something old and make it new again...with paint! Actually, I just like making stuff...DIY-that should be my initials! The Old Cypress House got started with a single plank of cypress wood given to me by my brother. I painted Tiger Eyes on it (LSU Tiger Eyes, to be exact...Geaux Tigers!). From that moment on, I couldn't do enough of them. I ventured into Fleur de Lis, Jazz guys...whatever anyone suggested. Then my husband helped tear down a cypress house that was built in 1889 and brought me home loads and loads of more wood, including the old cypress windows that were in the house...I could hardly contain my excitement! The possibilities are endless. This blog is going to showcase my work. It will mostly be on cypress...but, I'm sure I'll venture into other areas of art projects. I have so many ideas spinning around in my head. I hope you enjoy my work. If you see something you like or have an idea, please let me know...I'll be in my shop! "If you hear a voice inside of you say 'you cannot paint', by all means, paint...and that voice will be silenced" ~ Vincent Van Gogh View all posts by The Old Cypress House
