Wow. Just wow. Thank you all SO much for the kindest words EVER. I had no idea that my post yesterday would generate so many kind responses. I honestly was not expecting it and it kind of blew me away! You are all the best and really overwhelmed me with kindness.
I realized when I read my post back that I had not clarified which negative comments hurt. The only negative comments that bother me are the ones directed at me personally. Any comment where someone disagrees with a paint color, technique, etc. are always welcome. I’m not that thin skinned and can always learn from another person’s point of view. I can’t learn from vile comments about my body and its the personal attacks that bother me. Honestly, I’m fine and am learning to hit delete and let them roll off my back! I also want to reiterate what wonderful works St. Paul’s Parish are doing each week and invite you to click on their site for more information.
Okay guys, I’m now rolling right into today’s post and am back with a paint before and after to share. Back to my comfort zone!
I shared Laura’s china cabinet a few weeks ago. It’s not vintage but is solid wood and the perfect candidate for a makeover.
Laura decided on creamy white to lighten up her room and contrast nicely with her new dining table and chairs. I just finished the bottom of the cabinet and took a few pics to share. This was three coats of Old Ochre, sanded smooth and distressed with 220 grit sandpaper and waxed in Annie Sloan clear.
I’ll finish the top next week and then it will make its way back home to Virginia!
