I was lucky enough to be one of four winners of one of her sketches and the sketch was to be of my home! Yay! I have always loved her sketches, they are soo darn cute... so I was absolutely thrilled when I was announced as one of the winners. Here is a pic of my home.. but if you want to see her sketch make sure you head on over to her blog.
I told Amy how I wished my gardens were finished (as it's still a work in progress) and she immediately offered to put in the gardens and other features for me! Isn't she lovely! So if you don't know Amy from Maison Decor yet, get your butt over there right now! She has one of the lovliest blogs around and I just love her decorating style.
Do you remember my farmhouse cabinet from a couple of posts ago? If not well here it is again.
I really love it the only problem was the blue. It just didn't look right. Too much of a beachy blue and just didn't fit in with the rest of my decor. So yesterday out came the white paint and it now looks like this..
I just love it.. still needs new handles though but I couldn't wait to show you. I went over it with a dry brush. That is not much paint on the brush so it wouldn't go into the grain of the timber. I painted over alot of the blue and got the sander out to reveal more timber and give it an aged, worn feel. It still has a few underlying tones of blue but no where near as much and gives it a different hue to the rest of my white furniture. As you can see I changed the inside around which also helped change the look! I'm linking up today too with Kathleen from Faded Charm for 'white wednesday'
Well on another note seems like I am slowly (but surely) heading towards 100 followers! I was thrilled when I hit the 10 mark... (after all who'd want to follow me) so to commemorate this grand occassion I have decided to do a giveaway. Can't tell you what it is yet but I do have something in mind that I will be designing and making myself and am sure it will suit ANY style home...and will go to ANYWHERE in the world. So stay tuned.... have a great week girls.. Maryann
