New Stuff for Sale

Hi! Post numero dos! This post includes some of our new and recently completed "For Sale" items.  The house is beginning to look like a hoarder's lair with all of the furniture we have stockpiled inside and out! Daddy dearest has not taken kindly to this...Sooo, if you would like more information about any of our furniture or are interested in purchasing anything, please let us know!  Thanks!
Shabby vintage blue cabinet with hand painted pansies and gold scrolls done by my lovely mother.

One of my pieces (mostly). Art deco waterfall desk with hand painted vintage graphic. I really like the way this one turned out. It's kind of steampunk-y! 
We get a lot of great vintage graphics from The Graphics Fairy! Check her out!

An antique window from an old Queen Anne Victorian that I painted a sweet vintage hat shop graphic on.

Antique coffee table with hand painted vintage French graphic.

Pretty little gypsy! Antique chair hand painted in beautiful colors!

Antique side tables. I love the colors!

Cute little "Paris Address" demi lune table.

Antique oak periwinkle bentwood chair with cane seat.

This little beauty is actually the first piece I did entirely on my own. The top is wood stained poppies!

A side view of my lovely table.

Another window I did. I really enjoy painting windows.

What We Do

Aimee Rose Emporium is just beginning, so we figured now would be a good time to explain what we do. Upcycling. We take in previously owned, unloved or orphaned furniture and other vintage finds and give them new life and eventually a new loving home. My mother (the Aimee portion of Aimee Rose Emporium) has been doing this for over 30 years and I (the Rose portion) grew up surrounded by her work. Now out of school (Woohoo!), I am trying to make a living the same way. I've always been inspired by my mother and now we have decided to work together. We love what we do and we hope you do too. Here are some pictures of some of our sold items. More pictures to come of more current work for sale.
