On top of all that I have to do, our car had to go into the shop Monday...$$$, Wilbur is missing and Sara is highly deficient with Vitamin D.
She called me from school telling me she almost passed out. Any mother's nightmare! What if she had been driving? Luckily she was able to lay down and it subsided. I told her to get home. Of course I prayed and called, prayed and called until she pulled into our driveway. She barely made it up the stairs from being in so much pain....poor kid!
Now I don't know if you all remember or not, but back about 2 and a half years ago, she had something similar happen and had to be rushed to the ER in an ambulance. We found out after numerous tests that she suffered with vasovagal, hashimoto's, hypothyroidism and her antibodies were high meaning her body was attacking her thyroid. Well long story short...here we go again!
I needed an outlet this evening! So I made the commitment to "finally" paint this old cabinet. I have loved it for over 10 years, but lately it has been bugging me. I love wood for awhile but always end up painting. I just love painted furniture!
It is a pretty piece...but maybe in someone else's home? Nahh, I wasn't going to get rid of it...I just made it fit into my home!
Our downstairs has one window so I am always trying to make it light and bright. This wood just wasn't working.
Now it feels more calm...like it belongs. My eyes don't stop like they used to..it just makes me feel easy breezy!
I couldn't wait to get it finished to see how my hodge podge of china would look.
Pardon the dust...it did look pretty but once the doors were closed, you couldn't see them. And the doors have to stay closed or we'd end up killing ourselves going the the bathroom and our closet.
Now isn't that easier on the eyes? I still want to distress the cabinet, but Mike was asleep...don't think he'd much appreciate me sanding, lol.
I love it now! It's got broken pieces, splits that have been repaired, legs missing, it leans back...but it has character now and you can see all the blemishes. Something I love! It'll look perfect distressed!
It just blends right into the wall!!!!
Now it doesn't stick out like a sore thumb! It blends with the office so much better!
And one thing I have to point out and I'll shut up...see how the wood bled through the paint making it creamy instead of white? That wasn't planned, but a very happy mishap!
Now I can go to sleep not so wound up with worry...Sara was feeling a little better when she went to bed. But if you all will, I'd greatly appreciate some prayers for her. She's had a time health wise. I know it's one more thing God will get the glory for so I am praying and believing for a healing!
