Truely Enjoying the Fall Colors!!!!

 I've been wanting pretty-up the porch.

  Since we moved to the Treasure Valley in the begin of April I've been waiting for this. 

 The changing of the leaves...
 I wasn't a very big fan of autumn, until the last few years.  I don't know why, but it seems like every year I am more in awe than the year before.

Hope all of you are enjoying the season too!!

Market Madness

That's what it's been around here.  A good kind of madness. :)  This post is a thrown together, but I just wanted to share somethings we been getting ready for tomorrow.  We'd love to see ya down at the Village in Meridian, if you can make it. Our little market is new, still growing, but we have fun.
Check out the FB page

Cute little seat painted in Creamy Vanilla
Adorable entry table w/ small crates (that we take custom orders on).

Before (painted in Vintage White)

After (with our new Passe' Powder, applied & sealed) 

We are honored to be featured at Cozy Little House, today.  
Thanks Brenda!! 

Off to finish up getting ready! I may be up late into the night. :D

"A Rose By Any Other Name Would Smell As Sweet"

No need to double check what blog you just got onto.  Lol!! Yes, we have changed our name and our look.  Isn't our logo fun?!?! We are thrilled with it.  We feel this new name really suits us, so the blog, website and paint that was previously known as Shabby Chic Farm is now Vintage Chic Farm.

Happy painting all!

Lulled Seaside Galore

  Isn't it beautiful!?!?!  So calming.

 It's amazing what a couple of colors can do to transform a tired piece of furniture.  
This was painted in "Lulled Seaside" & "Ancient"

 One of our new pieces, all ready to go to Market with us on Saturday.

I just have to thank my mom-in-law for her incredible post about us on her blog!!! If you didn't come in from there, you should check it out.  She is an amazing designer, quilter, cook, and Mother-in-law.
  She really does it all, and she's good at it!!!

Pink Vintage Pfaff Sewing Machine

Picked up this vintage PFAFF from Craigslist.  My husband, Mr. Painter, thought is would be cute pink, so he taped it up SUPER carefully, and let 'er rip with the pink gloss!  I think it's adorable.

Mr. Painter, when he got done with the machine went to town on the desk.  After a day or 2, when it was all dry he thought he see if it would sew. 
 So he messed around with it for an hour or so, got kinda fluster with it, gave up.

 About 10 minutes later came and tried again for an hour so, gave up.
Can you see it? You can still see Pfaff 230 on it.

This went on 2 more times until late that night. And then a little in the morning.  He finally decided to call a professional. :)  

 The sewing machine service man didn't think very much of it being pink. :/  Something about it being a collector's machine.  

  We found out it had extra parts on it.  ??? There was an extra disk in the tension dial, knob...? Can't think of what to call that.

 Anyway, Mr. Painter was quite impressed by the repair guy.  He got it running, and now it sews!  Boy does it.  We are so excited about having such a heavy duty machine.

A Chair Makeover

 Well I've been gone for a while, but we're doing a ton of catch up in a short amount of time.  :)  Love to be gettin' things done.  This is one of the things that got done yesterday.


 Ahhhh... that's about all I can say.  (dreamy smile)
Linking up at Mrs. Olson's

Ok. So a couple of weeks ago I promised to post the finished pic of the table Hubs built.  Well here it is.  No, it didn't take him that long to get it painted, it's just taking me this long to post it.  Lol.
A reminder (in case you don't remember it from almost 3 weeks ago)  :)
He ended up adding a little shelf-ish thing.  Haha Don't know what to call it, but I love it. Perfect for a basket, a little extra storage.  Painted in our Lulled Seaside and the then Vintage White on the top.
