Shabby Chic'd Tall "Girl"

Hi Everyone :)

I thought I'd share what I've been working on the last two days :) About two months ago I found this Tall Boy at GW for $69 but that was a little much for something that I would felt would be a redo item.

Every week my GW has a 50% off certain colored tags soon enough yellow was the color of the week and I got this for $35 :)

I bought it for my craft room which is done in the Shabby Chic Pink & White so I had to paint her.

Here she is my neutral Tall Boy is now my Shabby Chic'd Tall Girl :) All paints I already had and the hardware is original just added the pink paint.

Thanks for stopping by :) Toodles,,,^..^,,,Melissa

Shabby Chic'd China Hutch

Hi Everyone :)

It's been awhile since I posted because several months ago Blogger and Google+ and Picasa did something and when I down loaded Picasa all my pictures on Blogger disappeared and even though there wasn't a lot I just lost interest in having to redo everything. So let's just start with something new ;)

I am on a painting kick and having great luck in finding some great things at thrift stores :)
I have a lot of room in my house just not a lot of storage space :( I have my grandmother's dining room set (she passed away several years ago). The set has a table, 6 chairs, china cabinet and buffet :) It's in a dark wood but I'm not ready to paint it yet. Anyways I have run out of room in there for my dishes and ways to display my favorites :) So I've been looking for china cabinets and hutches that were open at the top and closed at the bottom for storage :)

I found one at GW for $45 but I just didn't want to spend it and couldn't really. Well Sat was 50% off everything in the store and I also have a $10 Frequent Buyer card :) So I got it for $15 ;)

I was so happy to get this and a couple other things I'll talk about later ;) I have now painted it and it is beautiful :)

Isn't she just the greatest? Displayed are some of my favorites and she's currently in my Kitchenette until I get the courage to paint my dining room furniture :) The paint I had on hand and had used in my dining room :) So for $15 I think I got an awesome deal :)
