Today’s Favorite Find Monday is going to look spectacular when it is finished. It’s a china cabinet that will be getting a makeover in Annie Sloan Old Ochre. The cabinet is not vintage but its owner is looking for a change and a lighter look to her dining room. She purchased a fantastic new dining table and chairs which are a warm, rich wood tone while the cabinet has a more cherry finish. The Old Ochre is going to complement the set perfectly and it also ties in well with Laura’s rug. I’ll keep you posted on the progress and post a few “after” shots for you!
Here is the cabinet today. It is being delivered to me next weekend and I can’t wait to get started!
Oh, I keep forgetting to give you an update on my face after the PDT treatment. It actually took a full two weeks to get back to normal. My skin is definitely smoother and it looks pretty good! Main thing is that all my pre-cancerous skin cells were killed off. Okay, now I won’t post another selfie for a long time – promise!

Happy New Year, Suzanne! Hope your holidays were lovely! Yes, keep us posted on that china cabinet. What a fun project!
BTW, not sure how I got off your mailing list? I’m happy to resubscribe, but wanted to make you aware in case others have gone missing, as well. I just thought you were taking a blogging break! LOL Take care, Cynthia
Hi Cynthia! Happy New Year to you as well! Thanks for letting me know. I switched from one service to another and I’ve received a few people saying they are getting multiple emails and a few that are no longer getting any. I guess one step forward and two steps back in this website growth. Thanks for understanding!
Oh Suzanne, you look gorgeous! I’m glad you are feeling better. I am going to watch your new project with close eyes. I have had the same dining room suit for at least 30 yrs. It has been moved a lot, we have had many homes it has been packed up and shoved in many moving trucks. Let’s just say it shows the damage done. I am looking to update this suit for awhile, but am afraid I will mess it up big time. Please take lots of pictures and give lots of instruction, it will be a great help. Thanks for sharing!!
Hi Maggie! I will definitely do a lot of posts on it and hope to record a new tutorial to share! It will be great for you to get ideas for your own set. Don’t worry, you won’t mess up – it’s just paint!
Delighted to see how nice you look and learn that your health is no longer threatened. Looking forward to the cabinet re-do.
So very happy you are doing so well! Must have been so stressful for everyone. I know i don’t actually know you, but i feel connected to you thru this site. I just try and imagine myself in such a situation! Keep on being healthy.
Thank you, Jauquetta! I really appreciate your kind words! I am so glad to be back to normal again 🙂
Hi Suzanne, Do you receive my emails? I am still receiving two emails every day for the past 3-4 weeks. Thought you might like to know so it could be addressed. Am I on two lists? Could you please let me know that you received this email and checking into the problem?
Hi Pam, I did send your info in to the website developer who switched my email list over from one system to another. He thinks that somehow you are subscribed with two different emails. Can you please unsubscribe by going into both emails and unsubscribing. Then re-subscribe on the blog. I am SO sorry for this! I wish I could do it for you but there is not way for me to do it on my end. Sorry!
You look great…know that must be painful for a time but you look wonderful! That has to be really scary!
Can’t wait to see the cherry china cabinet….i have one I’m thinking of having painted.
Hi Mary, Thanks so much! It is great to feel back to normal!
My doctor recommended this treatment to me. I am still considering it. I hate any medical treatment. But you did it and look terrific and feel better. I am looking forward to seeing the china cabinet.
Hi Debra, It really is unpleasant and not fun but I must admit, my skin looks really great after! Just be prepared to take at least a week off because it takes that long to look decent again! Oh, and don’t do it a few weeks before Christmas lol!
