Projecting

This week has been a major project week.  It has been fun spending some time with a friend and getting some things done both at her house and mine.
I really really really wish I would have taken a before photo of this little cabinet.  Imagine gold paint, 1970's strange handles hanging down.  The older couple who I snagged this from for a measly $5 was honestly surprised that I wanted it.  They asked me several times, "are you sure?".
What do you think?  Inspired by a photo my sister sent me I tried the white doors with the blue.  All the holes from that funky hardware gave me a challenge - so that is where the pretty birds came in.



Today, I'm pretty sure this is going to be a great piece.  I'm thinking at the end of a hallway in my new house?

  5. So cute! Wish I had a brain for creativity.

    I am waiting for someone to come to my house and hang all the pictures back on my walls. I took everything down and painted and I put all the decor in the corner of a room.

    Come help! I'll make ya dinner! You do like Happy Meals, right?
