I am loving the changes we have been making at our home turning many antiques from dark woods to Vintage White and Portland Rose. My friend who passed last year had sold me an armoire many years ago and it has been in a guest room holding my books. After seeing this really neat photo on line at The Painted Cottage's March Cottage Feature (scroll down a little ways) I really got inspired to change our armoire by asking my husband to get rid of the doors and center post and open it up as a china shelf piece. Here is the new look which is the second large piece we have done in Cece Caldwell's Portland Rose over Vintage White! What do you think?
I tried not to put so much "little stuff" here. You know I am bad about that. We are selling the mahogany hutch that was here before - so that has been moved out.
This was before:
Tuesday we had a blizzard day with just a little snow but 50 mile an hour winds. We fired up our woodstove and my husband worked all day on the armoire. I made the white pillows with pink roses for the living area by cutting up an old twin crochet bedspread. I found an old sheet to cut up for the backing and pulled the stuffing out of some old pillows. I made 4 pillows and a throw. The other quilted pillows are from my store. This is an attempt to "tone down" my green Victorian sofa that I won't be changing now. What do you think?
