Cindarella’s Attic Vintage Furniture

Cindarella’s Attic Vintage Furniture

Twenty-five plus years ago, I was a stay-at-home mom of two. Although I was blessed to spend that special time with my kids, one income didn’t really leave much money for home decorating. By trial and error, I was able to reStyle my entire home, including the furniture. I can still remember sponge-painting the walls, while standing on a stool with my children holding up the paint cans (some of you must remember the 80’s…lol) I really didn’t know how to do any of it at first, but I just kinda had an eye for what I liked and then I would just do it!
That is what Cindarella’s Attic is all about: When I come across something vintage, ​although perhaps it’s a little time worn, I still get a vision of what it could become with a bit of reStyling.

Now as a proud American Paint Company retailer, I also have the opportunity to expand my horizons with all the beautiful shades available with their abundant color palette.

I hope you can gain some inspiration by looking at the following photos of some of the pieces I have painted and begin to reStyle your own treasured finds…

The display window in my shoppe is ever changing to share my new treasured finds and to also reflect the seasons. Cindarella’s Attic is centrally located in Connecticut at 59 Wells Rd., Wethersfield, CT.

I’ve also reStyled quite a bit of furniture for cottages, as we are lucky enough to be less than an hour from the beach… Photo left – Side table with a rope handle painted in APC Tarnished Platter with 2nd coat in APC Navajo; 2nd photo-Bureau with rope handles painted in APC Fireworks; 3rd photo – Dresser painted in APC Liberty with Latitude/Longitude in APC Dollar Bill; Photo right – Coffee table painted in APC Home Plate, Blue Jeans & Country Barn accents.

And I am always partial to anything with a French flair …



I have always loved the look of a worn stenciled imprint …
