After a three year hunt for the perfect piece to sit between the windows in our bedroom, Honey got me this gorg antique china cabinet for my birthday back in March. I know… a bedroom seems a strange place for a china cabinet but she’s quite petite, antique, was priced right ($100 on Craigslist) and offered up some much desired display space. Seven months later and I’ve just now gotten around to fixing her up. (And by fixing it up I really mean putting stuff in it.)
Honey painted the inside in the new wall color – Benjamin Moore Pale Oak. I stocked it with a barnacle from Home Goods, a wavy coral from Pottery Barn, a marsh painting by local artist Adam Houston (that I procured for $20 and have had in my closet for twenty-two sad months), stacks of books covered in kraft paper (Dollar Tree) and a few stunning oyster plates in porcelain white from Alison Evans. (Clearly I need to steam the curtain on the right…)
And lest you think things are always ship shape around these parts, here’s a view of what the rest of the room looked like on this lovely morning.
Now, if I could just get the other two walls in the room figured out…
I also want to share that we received word on Friday that Jay’s test results came back normal!!! Thank you for your prayers…there is much to be thankful for!!!
