Linda @ Painted Whyte September 7, 2010

I have to apologize, i've been such a bad blogger lately.... after holidays i was home for only about 5 days and then Melanie and I were off to Calgary for the weekend.  They have a new Coach outlet store just outside Calgary so in 3 days we went 4 times i think :)  My willpower was tested like crazy... since just coming back from Vegas and California my bank account was a little low.  I actually stood in line with an amazing black handbag and was going to pray to the Visa gods to let me have it but i talked myself out of it... i know shocker right?  Kevin did buy me a Coach handbag when we were in Vegas so sadly .... i left without one but Melanie and i decided we would go back again real soon.   Well worth the drive!!!

Within a couple of days after Calgary i got attacked by the cold bug and had to completely stay away from any dust or paint fumes because i was just gasping for air even when i was wearing a mask so i had to take a bit of a break.  I do have a before and after for you - it took me a while to finish because of my forced break but it is done and ready to be delivered to its owner.  I actually really like the colour... its YELLOW!  I'm not normally a yellow lover but this tone of yellow feels very calming and cozy to me hmmm and soon i will have something else to show you in yellow.  I found it on kijiji along with several other awesome things - they will arrive on the 15th when the seller drives into Edmonton (she is about 2 hours out of the city).

Anyway, back to the before and after....


I added the only knobs i had left from my stash just so i could take a picture... the only thing is they are pink... the client is going to wait until its in her space to decide on the style of knobs, so for now for the after picture they are pink lol
