Custom Pieces For Friends

This past month I have had the opportunity to makeover a few pieces for some friends in my neighborhood. 
This t.v. cabinet is my friend Ellies'. She is such a fun and vibrant person! Ellie is in the middle of making over her entire home and I was so honored that she asked me to assist her. 
This pillow was her inspiration for color.
After looking thru many blues we finally decided on Napoleonic Blue.
It turned out just perfect!
This piece belongs to my friend Alaina. Her mom gave it to her back in the fall. It originally had fabric all on the inside but Alaina and her husband ripped it all out and left the painting to me.
This is not the best picture of it but at the time we were in the middle of being sick at my house. I hope one day soon I can go back over and get a pic of it in Alaina's beautiful home. 
I used a combination of colors to achieve this washed look.

Thanx ladies for allowing me to help you with your pieces! I am truly honored.

See y'all back here tomorrow for "How I Found My Style Sundays".


  1. Both pieces turned out great. What fun makeovers-it is amazing what paint can do- xo Diana

  4. Great eye for color pamela, Great job.

  5. Would you like to come down to San Antonio and help me paint a few pieces??!! LOL!! Very nice!

  6. Both pieces look fabulous Pamela! Love the finish you gave the antique piece!

  7. Both pieces are great, love that blue on first one, very pretty color and style of table is great. But that 2nd. piece I am so in love with, awesome. I tend to like the older pieces style. Maybe that's cause I'm old (72), wonder if anybody likes my style? lol
    Love what you did with both pieces, you always do great job. Lucky neighbors.

  8. Pam,
    Both pieces came out beautiful. I love that white cabinet. It is gorgeous

  9. Hi - love both pieces but really interested in the one you did for Alaina as I have an identical cabinet which I really needed inspiration for - which combination of colours did you use for it? Does it have shelves?
    Thanks and great job!
