Blue Monday

Good Morning and welcome to Blue Monday!


I posted this photo a few months ago. I purchased that cabinet from Unfinished Furniture Mart and painted it years ago.


I just took this photo a few minutes ago so you could see more detail of my faux crackle finish. DH thought I made a mess, but I liked how it turned out. Oh, did I tell y'all I like BLUE?


Someone stole my idea! Someone who blog lurks and has a flea market/antique shop booth stole my idea. ;-) The shop, where I found the chandelier, also had this cabinet. I had to do a double take b/c of the color. LOL! Did I tell y'all I love BLUE? I am really teasing about somebody copying my idea. But seeing this piece leads me to believe that I am on track. Though that would not matter because I love my blue cabinet! And I painted it for me and the spot it sits in. :D

Thank you for stopping by and leaving a commit!

I love your blue cabinet, Melissa, and I think you did a fab job on it. Don't tell Beverly but I have a whole lot more blue than pink! Well anyway, have a wonderful pink or blue week! :)Nancy

The blue cabinet is great, very charming. Don't you just love it when you find out someone has copied you? NOT!! Have a great week.

Okay, here's more weirdness for you. I can see these photos just fine. Takes a while for everything to load, but your blue antiqued cabinet is clearly visible.

Weirdness abounds today...

If I didn't know better, I would think you loved blue.(smile) The blue cabinet is very pretty. Thanks for your comments on my Blue Monday. Our kids took us to Hawaii to celebrate our 50th Wedding Anniversary in May. We were there a week. It was fantastic. Thanks for asking.
