Wow, it sure feels like forever since I have done a post. Two weeks ago we had Spring Break and we were gone a lot of the time (pics to come another time). I took that week to relax and try and be as "computer free" as possible. Between computers, iphones, ipads etc. it is truly amazing how much time we spend caught up in the cyber world. Needless to say, the break was a good one. I felt better (physically and mentally) that week than I have in quite some time.Then school started up again with a bang. I realize how excited I am for summer to begin:)) How about all of you????? No real agenda sounds absolutely heavenly!!
On one other note, my mom is now home....she still has a road of recovery ahead of her, but at least she is in her own home:)) Thank God....... Thanks to all of you for the sweet messages regarding her.
Now for the REVEAL....remember my brown wood china cabinet????? Well, I am thrilled to report that it is no longer brown. After 15 years of looking at it and wanting it to be painted, it FINALLY happened. What took me so...long?????
Here it is now....
What do you think?????
I altered the picture using the Matte finish on Picnik. I am going to utilize that website as much as humanly possible until it closes on the 19th... So sad.
Here is the hutch without the Picnik alteration..
This is a "Before" picture..
Considering my house is pretty much all blue, white and cream, this stood out... and not in a good way. It is such a solid piece and I like the size, and shelving , I just didn't like the wood.
During the transformation.....
I wish I could say I did the transformation, but the truth is... I am not patient enough for a big piece like this. My daughter's room was getting redone and the fabulous painter, Sheila who did her room and specializes in furniture transformation took on the job. Thank you Sheila:))
Love how all my pretty blues look in the cabinet now
It still amazes me that this transformation took so.. long to start. It was worth the wait and I love being in my dining room now. Added bonus, the room looks so much larger.
I hope you all have a wonderful week. We have sunny skies in the forecast and I am looking forward to spending some time in the garden (favorite place) this week.
Welcome to all my new followers and thanks again to all of you for the sweet comments. I read each and every one of them. You make my day:)
