An Independence Day GIVEAWAY!!!

Happy Independence Day!!!
This just so happens to be my favorite holiday of the year!
(Next to Christmas, of course... :)
So I decided to do a giveaway... I had a hard time deciding what to give away.
Not wanting to limit the possibilities for "out-of-towners," I chose this cute little gear clock...
Picked and re-created by yours truly... :)
All you have to do to enter is "like" Antique Recreation on Facebook,
and "share" the post about the giveaway...
If you're not on Facebook, where have you been???
Just kidding, you can leave a comment on this post for an entry as well.
Fun, huh?
Oh, and I wanted to show you a few little side tables I've finished recently...
The first one my DAD actually stopped at a garage sale and picked up for me... WOW!!!
I never thought that would happen! :)
Painted in ASCP Country Grey... with dark wax on the wood top...
And the second is one I picked myself... so CUTE!!!
I forgot to take "before" photos of both of them, darn it!
Painted in ASCP Provence with dark wax.
I hope everyone has a safe, fun and wonderful day for the 4th of July!!!

Antique Table and Chairs in Graphite...

This incredible table and chair set was given to me by my cousins
Jeff and MaryAnn Hamblin.
I'm so grateful for their trust in my abilities to re-create it... it was so much fun!
I decided to paint in ASCP Graphite and only use a dark wax.
The top had a gorgeous grain that I stained first with dark walnut, then a light coat of ebony,
then sealed with polyurethane. 
It turned out beautifully!
The chairs were in desperate need of new padding and upholstery...
The new owners bought it before that was done so they chose this cute mustard yellow fabric.
I love it! The contrast of the yellow and graphite is stunning!
Love, love, LOVE those legs!
I had such fun transforming it...
I hope it provides a beautiful spot for countless family meals to come!
