I DID IT...AND SO PLEASED


Well I have now finished my first two pieces that sit in one little section of my new shabby chic space that I am creating for myself. They fit perfectly at the top of the loft where I can look down over my living area and even enjoy the view to my deck.

The desk, I decided on a vanilla cream color and the chair is a wetland green. I also had my handy man son cut me two boards so that this chair with out a seat would be complete. I absolutely love it, it definitely is "Shabby Cottage Sweet."

I am now well on my way and have already purchased a couple more old & tattered pieces. I saw in a magazine where they had taken a dark stained buffet and refinished it white with new knobs and adding some appliques. Well, guess what's next?
