Most every antique or vintage showing offers a collection of ‘smalls.’ These are, as they say, small decorative pieces intended to highlight the furniture on display as well as to offer a variety of price points.
I’ve been collecting and painting ‘smalls’ for some time now and have decided to share some of them with you today.

Magazine holder painted in ASCP Old Red w/dark wax.

Cigar box’s & silverware tray painted with ASCP/dark wax lined w/my handmade paper )

Camp stool (ASCP Graphite base with Versaille drybrush over wash, clear wax)

Plate rack painted in ASCP Versailles, clear wax.

Wood box turned candle holder painted ASCP Dove Gray drybrushed w/Graphite (my hand painted tissue papers as liner.)

These items will be for sale at the upcoming barn sale, date to be announced.

Stay cool everyone!
