My Chippy Yellow Dresser for sale at Farmyard Darlings!
SO excited to share this latest piece with you all! Seriously!!! If this dresser was edible, I would eat it. ALL OF IT. Every. Last. Bite. And I think if it was edible, it would be a heavenly lemon pie...but I'm getting ahead of myself! Brace yourself, ladies. This one is just too cute. I can't stand it.
So here she is beforehand...lost...forlorn...in need of some sunshine in her life...
AAAAAAHHHHHH!!!!! Right?! I just need to squeeze something right now because I can't believe how lovely this piece came out. I truly just hold my breath and send many, many, many prayers to the Lord as I'm painting each piece because I usually hit a point during the process where I'm frantic, afraid it's going to look horrible, and sitting on the floor in my painting clothes frustrated and tired...but in the end perseverance and trusting it's going to work out for my good wins in the end!!
So not only am I just thrilled to have completed this, but it's now for sale at Farmyard Darlings in Lafayette!! This is the part that kept me awake last night and the reason I keep pinching myself throughout the day. I cannot believe that something that I created with my wee little hands and in my wee little home and with my wee little family surrounding me and encouraging me...has now been placed in a FOR REAL retail space and is OUT THERE. In the PUBLIC. Where real ladies on real shopping trips come in and buy REAL items for their REAL homes and decide whether or not this dresser, or that mirror, or this chair, will be what they want their own families, friends, and loved ones to decorate, live with, and use...
It's just...I can't even describe the feelings right now!! Amazing! I feel so privileged and honored and just humbled by that thought!!! I hope my little contribution gives someone even the smallest amount of happiness and satisfaction when they look at it and consider its bones, its beauty, its color...
Farmyard Darlings have been so wonderful to work with and I'm so happy to partner with them on this item!! Their store is just what they are--darling! Go and walk through their store! But be prepared you're going to want to buy everything in it. :) Here's their website: www.farmyarddarlings.com. Have fun shopping!
I want to be jumping up and down right now in my kitchen but I'll refrain. But I am on the inside. I want to say more...but I've gotta run so I'll have to stop here. I think I need more time to take this all in...it still feels so surreal. And strange! I never would have thought in a million billion years I'd be painting furniture, or having a piece being sold in a store to other like-minded decoratesses! :) I'll write more later. Thank you Lord for this amazing privilege!!
I wish all of you a sunny and bright day!!
