    Chances are you are going to inspire some readers to paint a nice old wood buffet that has lost its appeal. Chances are a few hubbys will flip out…chances are the wives won't care! LOVE IT!!!!! xxoo Diana

    Looks Great!! I bet your home is much fuller than last time I was there. Your post just reminded me I don't have kitchen chairs. I do have dining chairs and 4 (yes FOUR) white Kitchen tables but NO CHAIRS. If you see any let me know. I want 6.

    question though… (one that will sound dumb, i'm sure.) the glass accessory to the right of the apothecary jar on that lovely tray… what is that called? and where did you find it? i've seen them on other blogs and want a whole set for my dining table! πŸ™‚

    gorgeous! I'm diggin' that color I've been brain storming a new color for my dresser and Aqua-Sphere is a definite contender. The best part of the post is that as I'm reading it, my hubby is reading If You Give a Pig a Party to my girls. β™₯ Good luck on finding some chairs.

    Absolutely my favorite piece that you've ever done! (well, that I've seen anyways)
    It's pure furniture bliss!! I just know you'll find the perfect French inspired mirror to pair with it! And chances are, you'll give that a little makeover of it's own, and chances are……I'm going to STEAL both of them! haha, no really. Chances are, it's going to be a match made in heaven. πŸ™‚

    Trouble is, we don't even know how to find a piece of furniture like this. Any suggestions?
