Pick of the Week

Yes, in case you were wondering I do love the show “American Pickers.”   If you don’t watch it or have never seen it, you are missing out.  Besides Painted Furniture, I also sell some of my vintage finds at the Sweet Olive Café. What I would like to do is have a regular post and show you what my new pick of the week is.

So this week its one of my favorites and greatest finds ever,  it’s a vintage paper roller.

I can just picture this paper roll holder ( I really don't know the technical term) on a counter in a old general store.  I have always admired these paper rollers in magazines and catalogs ( the pottery barn catalog)  and when I saw this one at a local flea market, I knew it was going to be mine.  The wood has a gorgeous patina and its the perfect size.  They apparently come in many different sizes, I have seen a few on etsy but they don’t stay very long.

Next week I plan to share a pick that I am actually going to sell at Sweet Olive, for now I am going to keep this one!!!

About Me

My name is Mandy and I love finding something old, outdated and giving it a new life using paint. The process I use to restore my furniture is an Art. Not only do I tediously pick and build every piece by hand but I only get pieces that I truely love. If I love a piece of furniture I will spend the time that is needed to hand-paint, distress, sand and wax every nook and cranny.
