50 Shades of… Paint?

Oh baby… I don’t know where you’ve been all my life, but I have to tell you – I am just so HAPPY now that you’re here.

To be honest, I didn’t even know that my world was missing something. Have you ever had that happen? You’re going along, everything seems fine, but then suddenly something comes into your life and you can’t understand how you ever lived without it.

Today, my heart is full.

Today, you fell into my crazy world, and I know things will never be the same!

I can’t WAIT to get my hands on you… It’s almost impossible to hold myself back, but I know it has to happen at the right time – and I know it will be worth the wait.

But oh man… when I have the time, I am going to be all OVER you… Just looking at you I have plans you can’t imagine. I am going to strip you down and have my way with you, and I’m going to love every second of it!

It will be good for you, too… I promise. I’ll be gentle, don’t worry.

So sit tight… don’t go anywhere. Because when the time is right, we are seriously going to make some magic happen.

I love you, beautiful antique sideboard…



True love indeed. This sweet lady joined our (bursting at the seams slightly overstuffed) home today, and I can’t stop looking at her – isn’t she beautiful?!?

In keeping with my new beachy/cottage/airy/calm decor plan, I’m definitely going to freshen her up with some Annie Sloan (sorry, purists!). It’s either going to be a really washed out, distressed blue:

 Or a similar look in a faded green like the one over at Young House Love

YHL sideboard

Gonna have to sleep on it for a bit (the ideas, not the side board) before I settle on one or the other, but right now I’m leaning towards the green.

If I don’t write for a while, it’s because my husband has literally tied me to the stair bannister to stop me from bringing home any more furniture. It’s glaringly obvious that I have a problem when my nine year old walks in from school, takes one look, says “Alex is gonna kill you.” and heads off to find an after school snack.

      So far I’m with you on team green! I agree… lots of blues and greys making their way into the main floor. I think the green will be perfect.

    B OMG, gorgeous! She has beautiful bones, and the paint and distressing will make her outstanding! She will look amazing in your home and will add lots of storage! Hey… Check my comment re: your comment on ‘buried alive’…. Then call me!
