A Fresh Start


“Sometimes good things fall apart, so better things can fall together…”

This quote seems quite fitting as Made Lovely had to say goodbye to an original partner this weekend. Lauren, we will miss you!

Saturday began on a sad note, but Marie and I were motivated to jump right back into our work. With renewed focus, we started our long workday by finishing up our Robin’s egg blue accent chair (a tribute to Momma Robin).  We couldn’t get too messy though, because we were dressed to impress. We had a photo session planned, in the middle of our work day, with our exclusive photographer…  Linda Palmer (if you aren’t familiar with her work it’s quite impressive. ;)) Thanks, Mom!

IMG_1502After some stunning pictures and a trip to our Annie Sloan paint distributor in Naperville, we were elbow deep in “Old White” paint working on the coordinating coffee table that rounded out our set of lovely tables.  Here are the after shots.  Hope you like it as much as we do!  All of the pieces that have received the Made Lovely makeover so far have a special place in our hearts (and my living room ;)). We can’t wait for them to find a great home!


DSC_7986Next on the docket…  A large, vintage dining room hutch. Picture “Mad Men”, mid-century.  It’s going to be amazing. We are so excited to share the before and after pics with you.  Our first job though, peeling off the contact paper from the beautiful wood surface. Gotta love over-protective parents!

Wishing you all things lovely,
