London Trip with Girls Scouts & Our Daughter Megan

This summer I chaperoned my daughter's Girl Scout Troop 1705. It was a memorable trip.

Moments like this are so precious and thinking back to our June 2011 trip makes for a great day!

From Shabby to French Chic!

I purchased this solid oak T.V. armoir from a yard sale. I took the cabinet doors off, sanded a bit. Then added a black flat stain. The bottom cabinet doors have new crystal handle hardware. After completion of painting, sanded off paint to see architectual details of cabinet, Added a mirror to the back and three glass shelves. Eventually, I might add a glass front, if I can find it at another yard sale! Sorry, this find, is not for sale. But, you could have this look, if you want me to restore your old piece of furniture or your yard sale find!
