This was our kitchen at Christmas in 2011. See, we have no mantel and did you notice that we do not have the same table and chairs?
We added the mantel over the summer and I have had so much fun decorating it for the holidays. I loved the mirror and was completely happy until I said goodbye to Mike one morning as he went off to work. I turned around to walk back inside from the garage and saw a buffet I had purchased a long time ago. It needed some work and I just hadn't felt like working on it until now! As soon as I looked at it, it dawned on me on what I was going to do with it!
Here is the photo I saw online before I bought it. I just knew she could really be beautiful once I got my hands on her! I thought some paint and appliques would really make a difference.
Just look at the detail....oh how I fell in love with it! See how the detail there on the bottom middle/left is missing?
This is what I was thinking...when I found this photo, I knew it was meant!
So I did a little bit of sweet talking to the Mister and he said we could do it....YAY!!!
Then I began to paint...
Oh how my heart flutters when I see my vision coming into view.
I couldn't paint fast enough!
And here she is all finished! See the piece that was missing? Well, I had to replicate the piece to match the other side, so it's still drying. That's why it looks so white. Once it dries, I'll paint it and no one will know the difference.
Now I am one happy lady....it is perfect!
But wait....now what do I do with that huge mirror we took down?
