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!
