Welcome to my crazy life! I love to refinish and re create on a dime. Join me in this adventure creating beautiful in your home. I live in South Western Ontario, am married to the most amazing man (he has to be amazing to put up with all the "junk" I bring home) Together we have 4 GREAT adult kids, one daughter in law ( I couldn't have asked for a better woman for our son) and I'm Oma to the cutest and brightest little boy. Yes I'm biased!
If you look at the history of waterfall art deco furniture you will find it was cheap to produce and easy to sell in the time of the depression. But it was also well made for the most part. I love that part.
I grew up with it. Actually it was in my parents bedroom. I would sneak in there and lovingly run my hands over my mothers waterfall dresser. It was just so smooth to my little hands.
So anytime I see one it just brings back wonderful memories of going in to her room and just gazing at all the wonderful things she had on her dresser.
I have done a few waterfall projects, some sold well and some haven't. I think it all depends on who is looking for what and when.
Last night my brother and his troup of kids came for supper and they had a look at some of the furniture I have finished this week. My brother saw the dresser and nearly fainted, he actually thought I had somehow gotten a hold of my mothers dresser and painted it. (brothers!..lol)
Again, I did not take a before pic, but want to share with you the afters.
I left on the original handles, just cleaned them up and put them back, I think they add just the right amount of detail to an already lovely piece. Wouldn't she look great in a little girls room?
