I absolutely love lavender. Summertime is when I decorate with my lavender decor, I sort of have it spread around in various places, this is the display I currently have on the sideboard in the family room. I used to have real lavender plants in the bed out front but they got so huge it was unbelievable! We had to take them out because they attracted giant black bees which I am terrified of. The scent of the plants though was heavenly. When we moved into our newly built house back in the summer of 2002, I was into the cottage/shabby chic style of decorating. Not long after that though I discovered primitives and fell madly in love! I still have several remnants of my cottage style and I still do like some aspects of it, chippy white furniture being one of them. I still have a few pieces which leads me to the main reason of this post. I have this wonderful sideboard in one corner of my family room and it is now the only white thing left in there so I'd like to find it a new home and replace it with a primitive piece.
Great, now you can see all the stuff I have stored underneath it! LOL. It is very hard to part with as it has been one of my very favorite pieces for several years now. I purchased it at a local antique shoppe, it was in need of some kind of a makeover so I added some details to it, painted it white, and heavily distressed it. I believe it to be from the 1930's and it is in very good vintage condition with two roomy drawers that work quite well. I am going to offer it up for sale so if you know of anyone who might enjoy this lovely piece, just leave me a comment with your email address. I am not willing to ship it so it will have to go to someone who is willing to pick it up. I am in the Richmond, Virginia area.
Have a great Wednesday....I am looking forward to watching "So You Think You Can Dance" this evening!
