A Custom White Wednesday & Inspiration Friday ...

It's been a Custom White Wednesday here at Sweet Magnolias Farm ..

My Most recent custom creations that we offered at our last show Glitterfest ..sparked the imagination of one of my Good customers and Friend...

She Wanted this Old Hump Back Trunk ..Distressed in a creamy aged white ...

Which I began work on today ..

AND ...

Created in the image of this Farmhouse Romance ..Custom Train Case I recently fashioned.

This Train Case was one of those "ugly Ducklings" when I happened on it and not in useable condition as it was ..those are my favorite pieces to find ..!!!

Something that has good bones but needs a new life built back into it so it can go on being enjoyed for many years to come !

I applied our Sweet Magnolias Farm Signature Farmhouse Style ...With lace Rosettes ..Vintage Sheet music ..antique lace trims ..aged seam binding ..

And an aged creamy white paint job ...

...It's crowning Glory ..an inside make-over as well ..

Finished off in authentic vintage sheet music ..

and Built in vintage linen and lace pockets ..

Adorned with scrumptious rosettes and crinkled tendrils of aged seam binding ..

A True Sweet Magnolias Farm Original ...

It is available now in our Etsy shop ..click Here

It will be a wonderful artistic journey to bring the humpback trunk to a Stunning Vintage Farmhouse Beauty ...Considering it's about 3 times larger than the old train case above ..It's sure to make a wonderful statement in her Home Sweet Home.

I already have the vision of it's design dancing in my head ..now it's time to begin applying that vision, from my head to my hands ..


I'm also working on 2 more train cases that will be offered very soon ...with more "ferme romance" built in ..a little Farmhouse Romance that is built in !

If you also ever desire a custom order ..by all means feel free to contact us, we love working on custom orders !
