I mentioned in my Daybook post last week that I had a couple pieces of furniture painted “Shabby White” – our old hutch and a little fireplace that we were given by a friend. The painter was able to finish them quickly and they were delivered on Monday evening while I was in town with the kids. We were so excited to see them when we got home!
They look quite different, and have taken me a little getting use to, but I think I love them! 🙂 I love our tan walls and dark wood floors, but the room did need a little brightening up and this seems to have really helped. We ended up leaving the mirrors out of the top cabinets, but we do have the option of adding them back, if we change our mind.
So, what do you think?
Hubby’s response was: “Well, it definitely looks 200 years old. . . “
Snuggles response: “Oh! It’s Layla’s Candy Shoppe
!!!!”(No, sweetie, we are not going to fill it with candy!)
I just love the little swirly appliques and hardware that the painter added.
And here is a before and after of the little corner fireplace!
Now if I could just figure out what to put in the hutch… Any suggestions?
Prayer of Mothers
Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.
