Pink Corner Shelf Redo

I got an email from a lady in Texas who said that her mother-in-law and I were the only 2 people she knew who had a "dislike" list and tripe was on it!! I had to laugh. If you're clueless, scroll down my blog and on the left side you'll see "things I'm not too fond of"– read it and you'll understand. In fact, I doubt most people read the sidebars on blogs. I do!!

I couldn't help myself; I had to paint it white. The pepto-bismol pink color was a tad too much for me. Oh, I love that color, just wasn't sure I wanted that strong a color on such a big piece of furniture in my room. So I repainted it this morning. I can add some decals later, but I had to do this quickly since we leave for Calif. tomorrow morning. Hubs will be pleased I think.

I'll also be posting from the road! Hey, I can't let all you sweet little chickees down, can I?!?! Hah..... Maybe I'll post my daughter's house and my son's house or some fabulous shop I may stop at along the way. That is if I can get Love Bunny to stop long enough. It's usually stop for gas, hurry to the bathroom, grab a bite and eat in the car so we can get there! We don't have the kids crying any more for dad to stop so they can go potty. Now it's ME crying with my face drawn back like we're at mach 10 speed driving through the Nevada desert to stop for a potty break! Well, at least it smoothes out the wrinkles!

Then while putting away a freshly ironed tablecloth, I spied these little salt and pepper shakers. Now, I believe in having shakers in 3 places when I have company - one set in the middle of the table and 1 set on one corner and the last set on the opposite corner. That way no one has to say "please pass the salt and pepper"!! I told you I'm OCD about things and the comfort of people in my home is upper most in my mind when they visit. But aren't they cute? I have 4 set though purchased many years ago. So I'm going to list these on the selling blog – La Maison Rose. Oh, and some of you may notice I added some "grass" to the other little pedestals. I think it looks kinda neat!
