Just a little note to let you know I am not totally MIA,
just on v-a-c-a-t-i-o-n!!!  A little rest for the weary, a break from the 105+ temps of Okla-home-a.  But, I will be back in August.  See you then!

Ooops... I did it again!!!

Well, I did it again... I am guilty of, regretfully, NOT taking before pictures!  Honestly, this time I actually thought I had already taken some.  But, when I went to upload them this morning nada!  Couldn't find my imaginary pictures anywhere.  Oh well, so you are going to have to take my word for it on this one. 

This is my latest creation and yes, I really mean creation.  I disassembled a coffee table a friend gave to me and disassembled a broken patio table I came across- several hours and a lots of cutting, re-attaching, nailing, gluing, sanding, priming, more sanding, finishing, and LOTS and LOTS of sweating (remember this is OK and we are in heat wave of over 100 degree temps for weeks now), etc... and voila!

Petite Farmhouse Table

Can I just say, I LOVE IT! 

This is SO my style...

Instant old.

Nice size for a eat-in kitchen.

Great detail!

More goodies...

I LOVE this chair! This could be a great desk or office chair, but would also be a lovely accent chair in a bedroom, living or family room. It is on casters but could be removed for stationary use. It is perfectly imperfect. LOADS of charm! (Pillows included)


Great mirror for any location in your home! It is a beautiful turquoise color and has been glazed for an instantly aged look.

The dimensions are:
30 1/4" h x 39 1/2" w

~asking $45

Great turquoise accent chair with giraffe print. Would work just about anywhere: porch, bedroom, living etc...

Famhouse table with a twist cont...

A while back I restyled what I called my "farmhouse table with a twist".  Sweet Jessica found it all the way from Florida!  She bought it, along with a few other Jaime creations.  Here they are at home with Jessica...

Jess also bought these chairs which I then custom painted for her.

I LOVE how she took my beachy white headboard and added her own contemporary flair.

This sweet little cart also found a home with Jessica. 

Thanks SO much Jessica for the picts!  Love what you have done with everything!!!

Before & After: custom painting your way...

Before: Jess bought these chairs to go
with my 'twist on a Farmhouse Table'.

After:  I custom painted her 6 chairs to
 match.  I also fixed up a couple that
were in disrepair... now, good as new!


Can't wait to see picts. of all 6 chairs at the table!

Before:  This little yellow table wasn't a
table at all.  It was a lamp (well a dilapidated one anyway)!
After:  Sarah called dibs on this table
before I even had a chance to paint it.
She too, was able to pick her color and

Before:  I did some modifying and voila'
its an accent table.

She picked the 'Robin's Egg Blue' that I have on my own dining room table.

This little table is loaded of antique charm.

Before:  I picked up this old drafting
table because I loved the base!  It
needed some repairs but I knew it would
be great.
After:  Elizabeth was looking for a table
to double as a desk and a table.  My
drafting table proved to be the perfect
solution.  She was able to pick her color
and finish to perfectly suit her taste.

It collapses as well as disassembles into 2 separate pieces.  Great for moving!

Still LOVE that base!

After:  At home in Elizabeth's place. 
Looks Amazing!
