Neighborly Love

My sister lives in a fab neighborhood about a mile from me-
I have to say, she has the best neighbors!

Earlier last year, she gave me a quick call early Easter morn,
 that her neighbor had put some furniture out to be tossed-
"Was I interested?"

No one who loves to paint furniture is ever not interested!

I zipped down and lucky me, I found a great table and 6 chairs-
all of the Pottery Barn variety!

It is still in my garage but that's not for me to makeover-
my daughter is claiming this for her apartment-lucky gal!

But, a few weeks back, the same lovely neighbor called my sis
 to see if I was interested in a desk she was getting rid of?

Sight unseen, I said, "YES"!!

It was a beauty with just a couple of repairs I couldn't wait to tackle!
a little putty here and there

a drawer needed some glue

So, after some glue and wood putty
and my fave Annie Sloan chalk paint and Martha Stewart's
 metallic silver paint for the hardware-


I even added some dollar store shelf paper inside the drawers!
I've gotta say-
this is just what the front hall needed-
light - bright- and storage to boot!

Take care, gotta fly

PS: Thanks again Megan- I'm always here to catch your throw aways!!


  1. Oh my God, that is magnificent! You are so talented! It looks amazing in your front hall--refreshing and modern--and storage to boot!

  2. Oh my gosh, that looks great!! I am glad you were able to use it. If I have anything else I will send it your way.

  3. beautiful! Don't let the neighbor see this, she'll want her furniture back!


Thanks for your kind comments-love to hear from you!
