They’re for sale.
Suite Potato pieces have been selling like hot potatoes! So a suite replenishment was in order.
Pillows, chairs, benches and more on their way!
My lovely friend Courtney of Fancy Pants ever-so-kindly handed off these little doozies to me last summer.
Shizzzzam! Semi-gloss black. Twine-wrapped accents.
Now for sale in SUITE POTATO at FORGET ME NOTS.
This little potater has been so busy livin’ the corporate worker bee lifestyle and soaking up Special-Man-Friend-Time before he runs all over the country extinguishing fires – that she’s neglected her ol’ home suite home. Apparently, if you don’t update your blog with content, it doesn’t get updated.
But as fire season commences, so does my ample idle time – and it’s a good thing because I’ve got ideas oozing from my pores. Yeah. That’s right. Oozing.
And there’s no motivator like a Suite Potato sale! This little guy went home to a new family this week and we’ve got to begin restoring a new piece to occupy its space! Oh, the possibilities!
So watch this space. For realsies. Watch it.
Do you know what day it is?
It’s announcement day.
Suite Potato announcement day.
After months of sanding, stapling, upholstering, paint spilling, Excel spreadsheeting,,,,
We’ve got ourselves a shop front!
Thanks to the lovely, clever minds at Forget Me Not Antiques in Hyde Park, Suite Potato has a cozy new home!
Located in the lower level of Forget Me Not’s, Suite Potato is slowly staking its ground as one by one, pieces reach completion.
Best of all? We have our very own private studio space! No more clearing the sawdust and blurring the lines between work space and living space. (I think I hear my landlord rejoicing in the distance).
More before and after space renovation pictures to come as I continue to build my inventory, brand and aesthetic.
You know when one good omen can change the entire scope of a project?
Well last week (immediately after opening) I sold my first in-store pieces.
Yeah. That’s right.
So come check it out!

Well friends, it’s complete. So let’s review.
Primed, painted, contemplated, contemplated, contemplated….
Then I painted again, and again. Then i took a sander to the edges like I was mad at it.
The base paint used was semi-gloss black and several top coats of black chalk paint were applied to the front of the dresser drawers.
Chalk paint is primed by smearing chalk across newly painted surface and then wiped clean with soap and water. Then let the chalking commence!
You see that? That’s attention to detail, baby. We’re talkin’ patterned lined drawers. Scented patterned lined drawers. You’re welcome.
Oh, and peek-a-boo. The sides were painted using a pale turquoise milk paint.
And there you have it.
