~ Channeling Matisse ~

I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday season!  I've been busy getting ready for Spring at the store.  (I know, we just had the first day of Winter!)  When I found a great display piece at an auction last month, I had to have it.  Brooke Giannetti's office was my inspiration for a transformation.

So, here's what I've been up to lately:

I can't wait to get this piece moved to the store and assembled. 

And, since it's so hard to find pretty painted French pieces, I've been painting them, too. 

This china cabinet is Paris Grey and white, and the buffet is Duck Egg and Old White.
Coco likes it.

Okay, I wasn't really channeling Matisse ~ I was channeling my friend Linda Luce, the goddess of painted furniture.  Linda sells at the Nashville Flea Market and just started a new blog ~ Simply Painted.  Linda ~ How did I do?
  I'm heading out to a country auction soon where I'm sure lots of treasures await.
Have a wonderful day!
