I shall call her Tiffany, and she will make me happy!

I have had this cabinet for several years. 

Is it a sideboard?  A sofa table?  I dunno.  It has lived in my dining room and behind the sofa.  Anyway, it came from one of those closeout stores for some super bargain price.  It is a honey pine, which went with my country look, but I am really going for a new style. 

I have seen all of the brave bloggers out there experimenting with color, and the hot one seems to be a robin's egg blue.  Well, I just happened to be at the big blue hardware store the other day and found a quart of it in the oops! section for $2.50.  Woo hoo!  It was meant to be!  I snatched that baby up and ran to the register!

After sanding, painting, and 4 new knobs, here's her new look:

The pictures look washed out.  She really is the same blue as the Tiffany gift boxes.  My husband thought I was kind of goofy for picking this color, but I really think it brings out the blue in the picture above the bed.  Which I just scrolled up to see, and it's cut off.  So there...  ;)

One of my fav colours apart from pink. Found you from Funky Junk that I stumbled upon tonight. LOVE HER SITE.
You say it looks nice and ties in with the pic over your bed..... but we can't see what's over your bed LOL just kidding, but I'm sure it looks stunning.
Love Claudie from Canada
