ENJOYING MY "NEW" KITCHEN BUFFET



I have to admit - I love my "new" shabby chic pink kitchen buffet (some say sideboard).  I have also found pleasure in staring at the lilies blooming in the arrangement on it.







Now that we are on a painting "roll" we are learning some things many of you already knew.  One example:  facing the challenges of working with mahogany turning it shabby chic......more to come on that note.
















Please join me tomorrow for FRIENDS SHARING TEA!

Bernideen, your teacups look so pretty sitting your 'new' buffet and the lilies in your bouquet are gorgeous. I am always drawn to pink myself and I almost shared my American Beauty teacup too but decided on the Rose Chintz instead. I do love china! Thank you for sharing and coming by for tea with me today.

Blessings,
Sandi

Hi Bernideen,
I love that rose teacup. I have some of the same pattern and it has always been a favourite. Doesn't tea taste better in a beautiful china cup? EnJOY your week.

Your flowers are just so pretty! I am envious because our spring has been so slow to come. Happy Monday from the enchanted oven.

Looks fabulous Bernideen, and I love the bouquet. Mahogany, dark and shiny is my favourite wood - you're going to paint it now? :-)
I do believe you are on a roll, hubby said OK, and there's no stopping your imagination now.

Can't wait to hear about the mahogany, that is what my mantel on the fireplace is. I want to paint it so bad. The pink blooms are perfect on the soft pink buffet.

These lilies are so pretty! You know how I love my roses just as you do, but my goodness, lilies and teawares sure are lovely together, aren't they!

A few years ago I finally purchased a buffet for our dinning room. It is one of my favorite pieces of furniture. I love serving tea from there. YOUR is beautiful. You set the prettiest teas!

Thank you so much for joining in for Fresh-Cut Friday! :)
