Love At First Sight

Dear Friends

Happy New Year!  Is all your Christmas put away?  I always get a sad feeling when it's all boxed up.  My husband tells me he fell in love with me at first sight.  Do you believe in love at first sight?  Well, I have to admit, after 32 years of marriage, two beautiful happy and independent adult children I've had my spell on Robert for quite a while.  My anniversary Armoire I bought for him not so much love.  He disliked it so I was thrilled to transform or remodel this beauty into a smart TV holder we both could love.  This was hard, I had a vision and had a hard time communicating my vision to several people.  I insisted on keeping the integrity of the beautiful mirrored doors.  My daughter was the only one who understood my vision and with her help and my loving mans help, we did it. The armoire is decorated with silk lamp shades from goodwill and a faux rose vine.  Debby and loving man are not your everyday DIYers but with perseverance we widened these beautiful doors and kept the beautiful mirrors that I feel in love with at first sight, LOL!  The center piece of the Armoire is waiting to become shabby beautiful again. This anniversary gift has many layers (paint) similar to everything in life, don't give up on that beauty, it may just need a little love and inspiration or a little shabby beautiful.

  1. Well, I'd say that turned out pretty great! I am glad you could repurpose it into something you love. We have a TV that sits out in the open in this house and I just don't like looking at a TV as a focal point. Good job for both hubby and daughter.
    Hope you have a great weekend- xo Diana

  4. Such a pretty style with the pair of mirrors on the doors. We are currently hiding a tv in an armoire, but I am thinking of taking over the armoire for storage space! Thanks for sharing at Celebrate Your Story!
