The Power Of Paint...

Remember that pitiful blue cabinet found in my Dads Auto Parts store? Here she is ! Two cans of spray paint and some super cool letter stickers and the cottage has a new addition.
I know you are just losing all kinds of sleep dreaming about this cottage,Ha! I have a few things left to complete before her debut and I hope you approve.It has been so much fun working on this cottage I almost hate to see it end...
I was planning to take a road to Round Top in hopes of finding those perfect pieces to complete her but life sometimes gets in the way. My plan was to find some goodies to share as well....so maybe in the spring it will work out. Have you ever been to Round Top Texas? I would love to hear about it.
So remember.. look past the faults, the dust and rust and try to find the beauty and Never under estimate the power of paint~

  5. it looks great, and so functional too. I have only driven through Round Top but didn't stop to look, kids in tow and they wouldn't be too patient all that walking around. Maybe some time soon while the kids are with the grandparents.......

  37. I agree with you. You have to be creative and see beyond the main function of a piece and see the potential of what it can be...

    If you get a chance stop by my Blog and say hi! I just put up a new post...
    Have a great day,
