"It's here" (and it brought a friend)

Ok, after what felt like a very long wait I found a cabinet for my kitchen.  I was looking for something different and not too "old lady-ish".   A local girl started up-cycling old furniture using the new chalk paint.  So I told her to keep an eye out for me.  

Well, she found a piece and went to work.   And here it is..........

The door in the middle has chicken wire instead of glass and the 2 side panels I am planning to add some white lace.  I think it's going to be perfect!!  Mom's china will finally have a home.  

And, I couldn't resist this little bench for my living room.  Extra seating plus storage underneath.  

Sorry for the dark photo but I don't have good light in this part of the room. I just thought it was so cute.  And my friend Sharon arrived today with an old window frame.  So I've been on Pinterest getting lots of ideas for what to do with it but I think it might end up over this bench.   (Someday). 

I've been moving furniture back and forth and from room to room all day. My little house is slowly coming together. Yay! 


  1. Yahoo what a great secret! I love it what great color. Show it when you have your mother's china in

  2. It is wonderful!!! I like it so much both pieces! I bet you are having such fun. It looks wonderful.

  3. Very exciting, Kim, to be adding some pieces that you really love to your house. xo

  4. What a perfect place for mom's china. Yes, please do show us when it is done. Fun little bench, too. So happy you've found the perfect pieces for your home. The best part is that no one else will have pieces just like yours!!!
    Hugs :)

  8. Lovely pieces, Kim! Great when things come together, hey?

  9. The big secret was worth waiting for. Nothing old lady-ish about this piece of furniture and the little bench is looking mighty smart too. I can't wait to see what else you'll be adding to your home. With such nice friends I bet it won't be long. I bet Millie approves too.

  10. Love it!! It can be fun making a house into a home!! Someday I hope to get my "beach house" and have fun decorating with that beachy theme!! Someday...
