Last year when I had a booth at Slate I sold this vintage chinoiserie-style cabinet. It had a very ugly formica top.
The buyer just sent me pictures of her "after" and it looks great! I love seeing old pieces given new life :)
She had the piece re-stained with an ebony finish. She added some gold paint along the trim and then topped it with an antiqued mirror to cover the formica. I love it! (I also love that lamp she put on it.. I asked where she got it, and sure enough... Slate!)
I hope everyone had a great Valentines Day! We don't ever do much or spend much, but we have a little tradition of having breakfast for dinner. A little "sweet" way (literally) to end the day.. it started way back in college, and I love it.
Mmmm... Mimosas and French Toast :)
Even though we don't do gifts, my husband surprised me with Season 2 of Downton Abbey. We are currently obsessed with this show!
