The Opening of Rosy Revival

Edited 2013: 

Since the publishing of this post, Rosy Revival has a bigger and better home in Old Town Spring.
For details, click on this link.

Saturday was a grand day in the neighborhood. My niece, Shelaine, and her husband, Shawn (that would be sugar plum's parents), just opened up their own little shop, Rosy Revival, in a charming area called Old Town Spring, which just happens to be a skip and a hop from my front door.

It all began as a hobby a few months ago when Shelaine started painting and refinishing vintage furniture, using the very popular chalk paint. She discovered she loved doing it and one thing led to another.

In time, and after prayer, a few miracles, they were able to acquire a building to help bring their dream to fruition.

What started as a little beige building, with nothing in it ...

... soon took on a whole new personality.  

Rosy Revival was born and is now opened for business.

In addition to selling painted/distressed/refinished furniture pieces, at affordable prices, Rosy Revival sells CeCe Caldwell's paint (an amazing product) and the shop is listed as an authorized retailer on the company's website.

Rosy Revival also sells antiques, vintage accessories, home decor, and a few random and unexpected items, like handbags, watches, and hair accessories. In addition, Shelaine also takes custom orders, if you have an existing piece of furniture that you would like painted.

Here's a look around the place. Enjoy!

And now ... some of the furniture, up close and personal.

This would make a gorgeous sofa table or credenza.

I can imagine this being used as a dressing table, or as a desk. Either way, I love it! (The stool doesn't go with it, but it's so cute, don't you think?)

This end-table is magnificent in person.
It has a velvet lined drawer and a glass top.

I love this chest-of-drawers.

One of my favorite pieces in the shop can simply be described as "enchanting." We figured out that the drawers are labeled with botanical terms. It would make a lovely addition to any room in the house.

Of course, I think it's even more "enchanting" with sugar plum perched on top of it. Don't you agree?

This gorgeous hutch (refinished by Shelaine) is filled with CeCe Caldwell's paints.

If you're ever in the Houston area, you must visit Old Town Spring. It is a landmark village. Charming shops and eateries line the streets, bringing with them a nostalgic feel of days gone by.

Rosy Revival is located in Doering Court, at 211G Midway Street, Spring, Texas. You can also find them on Facebook (Rosy Revival), and a website is in the works. You know I will keep you up-to-date on the latest happenings.

Speaking of Facebook, Rosy Revival is having a paint giveaway this week! Details will be on their Facebook page, so be sure and check that out.

  1. Good luck to Shelaine on this new endeavor! She does lovely work - I'll bet that the challenge will be to keep up with the demand.

  2. So I'm reading through this post just kind of oooohing and ahhhhhing in my head over every little thing and thinking how talented she is. Then, I get to the Sugar Plum perched with THAT FACE on the enchanting piece and just crinkled up all over. She's so cute to me.

    And the shop is wonderful. I would most definitely want to stop there if I were in the area. I hope the floodgates just open for her, too!

  3. Just gorgeous! I'll take the chest if Sugar Plum is included! You know Nora would probably take those sandals off of her feet and claim them without a second thought. She's a shoe girl who starts requesting "sues" everytime we enter a store. ;)

  4. When you stumble on your talent and passion, then make it you career, perfection happens.
    Congratulations and blessings Shelaine!

  5. Shelaine is living my dream. That's something I've wanted to do for quite some time. I'm so happy for her and Shawn. She is talented for sure!

  6. I am so happy for them I am speechless.

    What an adorable shop and family- you must be so danged proud of them.

    Your sugar plum is so sweet and huggable my eyes welled up with tears just looking at her sweet face.

    I wish you them the best success, what a dream come true!!!!

  7. Oh, how glad I am that shop is NOT a hop, skip and jump from my front door! Ha... Everything in that shop would be IN MY HOUSE! Love x 18! So excited for your niece!

  8. Oh Dayle, what an absolutely delightful and charming shop! Oh my! Lots of color and great things. I sure wish your niece and her hubs the very, very BEST in running it. Sounds great. And Sugarplum? Doll, doll, doll. Thanks for sharing! Susan

  9. It sounds wonderful, and I will definitely need to check it out the next time I'm in the area.

  10. Oh, this makes me want to pop right over and touch n' feel n' drool! Meanwhile, I'll have to be content to wait on the website.

  11. What a beautiful and colorful transformation. Best of luck to them. Thanks for sharing, liz
