Wish I Had A "Before" Photo

While at an cool antique mall out of town, I happened to find this little cabinet. I'd been wanting additional bathroom storage and this fit the bill, size-wise. Otherwise, it was a little beat-up looking. Big deal, nobody's going to actually see it, right? A previous owner had painted the outside of it a dreary maroon color and left the drawers the original (I think) wood grain. After looking at it a while in it's new abode, a little light bulb popped on over my head. Wouldn't this look so cute painted white? With some nice little ceramic drawer pulls? Since Mark is the furniture painter in the family, he got all crafty with it and TA-DA!, now we have this sweet little cabinet that fits in ever so nicely in the bathroom. Oh, and just to be technically correct about furniture painters in the family, I just remembered that Matt is too! Check this out.

I also have a new finish of my own to share. This is "Black Cats' Halloween" by Waxing Moon Designs. It was fun to stitch and easy, considering I used only black floss. My plan is to have it framed by Halloween. It would be fun to decorate a black frame in a Halloween theme. We'll see. My, how crafty we've been.
