She Came Home With Me

Oh, I am so happy that I got her! Well you see it wasn't easy, I had second dibs on her and I lucky me, I came home with her. Isn't she a wonderful size, tiny and petite. I so wish, I was still that size (ha, ha), those were the days. I knew the minute that I laid eyes on her, that she needed some POP, so what do you think I had in mind for her? Well of course, you must all know that a paint makeover was in order. Any guesses on what color I painted her? I decided to go with some of my provence paint (ASCP), I am really lovin' this color, it has such a fresh look to it.
                                Happy that you came by,
                                               Linda

                       I think that she would great in a bathroom.

                           Charming old piece...don't ya think?


                Well here she is with her new look. Did I pick a
                good color for her? I sure hope so, because she is
             for sale at my new location at Montrose Marketplace.

Love her shape. Especially the edge at the top. I hope you didn't paint the back and left her name to show. Great color of AS by the way.

That is a great color! I love how you left parts of it stained. I could definitely see that as a bathroom vanity. So pretty!

Linda, what a great piece. You're right, I could so see her in a bathroom with a stark white sink an old farmhouse style faucet fixins.
By the way, the Frugal Treasures linky party is back up and I'd love for you to share her there. Also, for all readers who care to, could you please check my short post on a "Paint Dilemma"? I'm having a problem with a cute little table I found for $1 at a garage sale and cut really use your suggestions as to options. Thanks in advance to all who respond. : )

Such a pretty piece to begin with, but the paint just makes it stand out! Love it.

Very cute! That color is perfect with the color of the wood.

Great looking piece and "she" has nice curves. Love the paint color. I love all the cotton bolls decorations in your shop. I haven't seen cotton plants here in GA for years.
