It's time for a change....


This old china cabinet was found at an antiques market in Atlanta & was pretty beat-up, however, we saw the potential and made it into something nice and useful. I first made this over 5 years ago to go with my then newly redone bedroom. It's been a great piece in the bedroom for an entertainment center and has served me well. But, like all things...it's time for a change & I just know it will look so much better when I change the color & make it fit in with the blues & golds in our Master Bedroom. So, stay tuned for the changes. I'm working on it now & hopefully it will be done in a few days. I still don't have all the details figured out & exactly what I want to do, but I think I have a plan!

The first version is above right & I was so proud of this one. This was one of my first attempts to paint & decorate a piece of furniture & this one was so much fun to do...as much as I have enjoyed it, I think the new redo will be fun too!

Here it is in progress...luckily my neighbors had a hand sander, so that is helping tremendously with getting off all the old wallpaper. I don't think I want to do that again. This time it will be all paint, I think!

Hi sweetie,
I remember when you shared pix of this piece a few years ago. I wanted to do the same thing, but never did. I'm excited about this new project. You're so good at this.

Hugs,
Judy

Can't wait to see what you have up your sleeve. We do need change sometime & that is the fun of decorating , isn't it? I will stay tuned to see how this turns out......have a great weekend!
