Yes I am distressed.  Wood distressed that is!

I have always loved the worn patina of old painted wood.  I have many pieces large and small and my love affair just grows stronger.

Lately I have fallen for old distressed walls as well. Mind you I think I would prefer one wall of a large room or a small room all distressed.  I think a large distressed room would be a bit overwhelming.

I also adore the slat wood pieces worn out in different shades of paint.  I even like some of the newer pieces.

You may recall in my post last fall that we had repurposed an old maple table into a kitchen unit.  I just love this piece.

Our annual Christie's Antique Show is coming up I am hoping to see some booths like this one....oh bliss!!  Perhaps I will luck out and see some fabulous painted bowls like these.

I am so in love with old patina wood that I have decided to reconfigure my Etsy Shop LUCY'S GARDEN.   I am hoping to have it ready in 2 weeks and when I do I will have a little GIVEAWAY to celebrate. 

The picture above gives a little hint as to what I am creating for the shop.

Also I would like to do a HALLOWEEN BLOG TOUR.  If anyone is interested please let me know.  I would like to have enough people to do one, I just love the other ones I have joined and hosted.


  1. Love all the pics of wood patina you showed us.
    What show are you talking about?

  2. Distressed wood is lovely. I like the idea of a distressed wood wall. I'm like you, I don't think I could take a whole room. Can wait to see what is in your Etsy shop.

  3. Love love love all the photos!! Rust and distressed wood, there's nothing better!!!!

  4. Love any old, painted, chippy bits of wood, so much character and texture! Can't wait to see what changes you have in store for Lucy's Garden Sue! And what did you have in mind for the Halloween blog hop? Sounds like fun! Deb xo
