Yesterday afternoon while Russ was mowing, Sophie released her artistic talents on the patio. She found a hard clump of dirt and started doodling. (Better than her last spontaneous Picasso moment - a Sharpie Marker to her Pottery Barn chair. That creative expression was not very well received.) She's sans shirt, by the way, due to a barfing incident from the "yucky smell" outside.
She told me she drew a butterfly. Is it just my "Mom's Eye", or can you guys see it too?
Here are the long overdue "after" pictures of the furniture painting adventure. The chair is currently in Mena with Kay getting a new upholstery fabric, so I don't have shots of it yet.
The china cabinet (with a stain added for a distressed look). I absolutely love how this turned out. It's almost a spot-on match to the kitchen cabinets:
The office cabinet:
I'm not sure what I want to put in the big, open area at the top. It's supposed to have a shelf, but apparently that shelf never made it off the moving truck. So until I can have my dad make a new one to fit, anybody have any super cool ideas as to what would look good in there? Should I have mom whip out her fabulous pottery skills once again? Maybe something vase-like, with some dried curly twigs in it?
