A few weeks ago I found this cabinet at the flea market for $30. It is the top off a vintage desk. My original plan was to paint it and sell it in my shop. The wood was a dark mahogany color and it took a coat of stain killer and four coats of white to cover. As I was working on it, the idea came to me that it would be quite pretty on my guest room wall to display some of the odd pieces of china I've collected over the years. The picture on the bottom shelf is a gorgeous piece of cross stitch that I rescued and framed. It is stitched on the smallest count fabric (can't remember what that was called). I painted the stripes on the inside with the same paint as the walls.
Last week, a friend and I spent the day in Leesburg, VA. I love that town! There are so many lovely shops and great restaurants. These are a few pictures we took that day.
