The Inconsolable Print

This print, titled The Inconsolable, is by Diana Thorne.  It is sold by Ballard Designs.

I love this print so much.

I’ve had my eye on this print for some time now.  It speaks to me.

China Cabinet Update (Sooooo Late, I know)

Susan's phone March, 2013 683

After trying each of these different wrapping papers out, I chose the top one shown above.

Design Chosen!

This was super easy.  I used removable poster tape so when I take it down later there shouldn’t be any damage.

And here is the final product!  Well…not exactly final since I don’t have everything put back into the cabinet in this picture.  I guess I got impatient in my picture taking.

I think this was a big improvement over having it plain.  I’ve seen this exact china cabinet painted and it looked pretty nice, however I think I will leave mine in it’s original state and spruce up the interior now and then for a little character which can easily be changed.  I bought this at a consignment shop a few years ago and fell in love with it just the way it is!

Why did she make things? Well ... she enjoyed it of course.
