It was in the stars...

If you have been a Facebook fan for a while you may remember this lovely piece...



The layers of paint. She started out at wood, then white, followed by yellow, then green, which was covered by cream and then back to white. I loved the story that it told so it had to stay. And those hinges. I remember the man working at the ReStore offering to knock them off for me. I gripped that cabinet door like it was my child and politely told him that the hinges were why I loved it so much.


And when I found this new "old" cabinet pull at Home Depot (love you Martha Stewart!) it was like icing on the cake. But she wasn't always this pretty. Here she is with her sibilings I got that day...


She was pretty dingy (be on the lookout for the tall one soon!) but when all work was finished I just knew she would be scooped up in a second. I took her out to my booth and checked at the end of every day to see if she sold. Secretly, I always was relieved that she didn't. So when the shop I was in closed and she was still there I was giddy. A few days later I admited to my husband that I was glad it didn't sell because I wanted it and he agreed. That was all it took...



The chalkboard has found a home! I always had big plans of what I would write on a chalkboard in my kitchen and this is all I could think of at the time! I blame the heat, it's sucking the life out of everyone right now.

Do you craft? Have you ever had one thing that you made and loved so much that you secretly wished no one would want it? It's ok, it just means you have passion for what you do. :)

On a side note: Do you have a blog or love a blog? Leave a comment below for me to check out. I noticed my sidebar is a little empty and would love to share that space with you! ♥
