Shizzle Design ~ 2012

The Number One Most Popular Post from

Shizzle Design’s Painted Furniture Renovations of 2012 was the…

Antique Oak Buffet

Layered in Seattle Mist & Several Other CeCe Caldwell’s Chalk and Clay Paint Colors
There was a lot of blood, sweat and tears put into this piece which was in pretty sad shape when I found it.  The painting is always the easiest part; I had so much fun layering colors and highlighting the amazing detail.

I also used a router for the first time to carve out a new top to replace the old oak top which had warped beyond repair.

I really wanted to keep it for MY bathroom vanity but knew the tear out and installation would be too much for me to take on alone.

The Second Most Popular Post receiving the most interest in my style of painting was the…

Vintage China Cabinet

Layered and Dry Brushed Shizzle Style in CeCe Caldwell’s Cinco Bayou Moss, Spring Hill Green and Destin Gulf Green

 This is one of my favorite paint styles!

  1. OMG, you truly are the queen of furniture transformations, how beautiful. Love your Shizzle Design style. I remember one of your first post, you were concerned if others would like you “style” and weren’t selling pieces. My how times have changed, and I see you talent and confidence blossoming!

  2. I love all of them! Wow, it would be really hard for me to pick which one is my favorite, but I am still thinking that antique chest where the blood, sweat and tears, that you shared on my blog will always be my favorite. It makes my heart race just to think about it! I am SOOOO behind on my emails, but hopefully tomorrow will catch up. Have PFM again this weekend!!

  3. Shelly, these are such great looks you achieved. I love how you layer your colors. That bed is amazing! I’m your newest follower. Stop over and visit at Quirky Vistas and follow as well if you like!

  4. Your work is stunning. It’s hard to pick a favorite from these beauties, but I love the clock table and the coral bed. I just started following your blog, but have been following you on facebook. I’d love it if you stopped by my blog if you get a chance. ~ Angie
