my mom's recent move has prompted several changes here at Sweet Bee Cottage too.
Some furniture has gone to consignment shops and to the Fabulous Phyllis and in return something new has come to a little corner of Sweet Bee Cottage.
We have this odd corner in our hallway. Several years ago I found the perfect table to fit there, but I always knew that there was a better solution.
Well Fabulous Phyllis and I worked out a fabulous deal and I am now the proud owner of a corner cabinet.
|Please avert your eyes from the things I don't know what I'm going to do with.|
I am so excited about the possibilities!
Yes, it's black and although I do really like black furniture, I don't think black is great for this spot.
I'm thinking about white with some colorful knobs....
|(Couldn't stand to leave it empty - put a few of my milkglass pieces in and I love it.)|
But really, my heart is saying paint it something bright. That silly heart of mine is also saying paint it blue......like a cornflower blue.......with white milkglass knobs......and a white interior.
Maybe the opposite of this....blue on outside, white on inside.
This looks like the perfect shade of blue....not too dark, but bright enough to wake you up.
Love how this looks, but it's brights at Sweet Bee Cottage.
Again, a great color, maybe a bit too intense, but it still draws my eye.
This one has be rethinking the blue exterior and white interior - what a great pop of color.
And here's a classic! Looks great, but I won't make mine quite so distressed.
More blue to consider.
Love how they painted the thrift store chairs and how it looks with everything.
And, now here's a question for you.
Do you think I can just paint over the black and not have bleed through?
Should I strip it?
Should I go for the milkglass knobs
|so many to choose from at Hobby Lobby|
or something more exotic?
My mind is buzzing! I so want to get this done NOW!
I have to get through report cards and parent teacher conferences and then - if the weather holds - this cabinet will be done by Thanksgiving!
Of course, I'll show when it's done.
Thanks for buzzing by!
Hope you're staying warm and cozy where you are. (Or cool if you're in the Southern Hemisphere.)
Soup season has started here at Sweet Bee Cottage.
We're trying a new potato soup recipe tonight that's cooking right now in the crock pot. Smells divine!
