Featuring Reloved Rubbish {and her new shop!}

Have you visited Amanda at Reloved Rubbish?

If so, then you are no stranger to her ability to turn furniture castoffs into pure beauty.

If not, well then, let me show you what I mean:

This armoire had wonderful style, but Amanda made it absolutely shine with chalk paint!

She found this sweet dresser on the cheap:

Turning it into this lovely:

And she brought out her paint and worked magic again on a set of chairs:

Isn't the chair gorgeous now? {And do you see that cute pillow? I love the contrast of it against the white of the chair!}

So if you didn't know it, you know it now: this girl knows her way around paint and furniture. So it makes perfect sense that she would...

...Open her very own shop, of course! Here is Amanda {pictured right} with her friend and co-owner Nancy, in front of their sweet new store, "Loot".

Isn't it so cute? But you need to peek inside, too!

I love the lights strung up inside, and how they have decorated the space!

Everything has been put together with such care and attention to detail...

Even down to their little garden area outside! Isn't it amazing? {I wish I could say my own patio looked this cute!}

Here is the front view of Loot...I love how they have placed the items in front of the store, and again how they have fresh flowers added to the mix! :)

All of this was a lot of work, but it has sure paid off! Loot looks like such a fantastic store, and I just wish I lived nearby so I could visit it in person! But for those of you lucky ducks who are local, here is the location:

3011 Main Street
Soquel, CA 95073

And if you are like me, and live to far away to visit her shop, don't worry! You can see all the lovely things she paints and sews at her beautiful blog! Be sure to stop in and say hello!

And a big congratulations to Amanda and Nancy on the opening of their gorgeous shop!

I hope you all have a wonderful night! Thanks so much for stopping by! :)

I only live 3,065 miles away, not too far! A 49 hour drive, no big deal. =) Wahhh! What an adorable shop. I wish desperately it was here in New Jersey. Thanks for sharing her blog though. Went by to visit and stayed a long while. Your newest follower, by the way. Love your blog as well.

I just discovered your lovely blog. I look forward to popping by again for some inspiration! I'm just new into blogging this year & have put together a daily blog on design, fashion, food, travel and anything pretty.
I had a lot of fun putting it together maybe you would like to check it out if you have a spare minute.
