So, originally I bought this adorable wardrobe because I wanted to actually keep it.  I know, I know, I should stop getting my hopes up.  Well, when I found out I was expanding my space at The Barn I was in a mad rush for furniture.  So, instead of having this beauty in my guest room like I planned, I dragged it back to the shop.  

I am aware that it is cute just the way it is.  HOWEVER, it is just not my style.  I LOVE the shape and even the color of the wood, but it just didn't sit well with me. SOOOOO, I painted it. Shocking, I know.

I love the look of 2 toned furniture and the wood on this was in perfect condition, so I just decided to do the drawer faces and door.

Seeing it all pretty and done makes me sad.  I totally wanted it in my guest room, but in the end, the growth of my business is more important then the cuteness of my guest room... right???

  1. oh absolutely. at least that's what i'll tell you to keep telling yourself. customers over cuteness. customers over cuteness.

  2. Aw, sweet! How hard would it be to haul it back home? :)

  3. Ditto to Pamela's comment: Customers over cuteness. And it looks great in your expanded space!
