Some of you will wince, but I painted the middle cabinet white. I rarely ever paint over wood, but this piece was a deep dark color. It pained me to paint it, but I did. I do love painted pieces, but ones that have already been painted and have a patina; ones that are chippy and/or distressed. This house was built in the 30's and had the same owners for all the years in its existence before I bought it.
Friends, Romans, countrymen...y'all. Foodies, gardeners, artists and collectors - let's gather together to share and possibly learn a thing or two in the mix.

When we go to Tulsa to visit our daughters and Izzy, we have this little house where we stay. I decorate it in mostly all things old and in the living room, summer colors and English chintz (pastels and such). Also, notice the wicker. The only problem with that is in winter. I fix that by not changing the decor seasonally. I wonder if it's just me, but as I get older, I tend not to change things around.
