Kansas City, Kansas City here I come…

No, I’m not moving to Kansas City, I was just singing the song. I will remain in good ol’ Wichita. Stop being jealous.

One weekend, my family took our last trip before I became a married woman to Kansas City. We shopped and shopped and shopped… and found the most amazing deals… with a little bitty car and no way to get them home (of course). One thing I did get home was this fabulous entry piece! With a little lovin’ it became one of my favorite things in this house.

I found this Baker furniture chest at River City Trading – an out-of-this-world antique mall by downtown Kansas City.

Here is the before…

And after a thick coat of Navy… and hand silver leafing….

First we painted the sides..

then added the lamps…

My “catch” all bowl… (ok, ok, It’s a glorified dog bowl. But it’s perfect for keys, right inside the door!)

Lastly, a few twigs just for the time being until I find the most perfect artwork!
