Change For The Good.

After years of me banging on, hubby has finally cracked and agreed to the painting of the kitchen cupboards..... from (dated) orangy/yellow (timber) to light and white-ish....then l had to endure another 10 weeks of waiting for the painter to be able to fit me in....struth!!...
FINALLY he tells me it's gonna happen and tomorrow's THE day.....(-: (-: (-: happy dance.
In honour of this momentous event..haha, l've made a few changes in my dining room as well......l was OVER the aqua backboards on this dresser. l wanted to add some texture to them and make them look kinda rustic.
l used a beige/grey paint, plus white.....when almost dry l wiped back with a damp cloth to reveal some of the previous blue, then lightly washed over the blue with white to give it a faded effect. 
l've finally put to use these little niches, great for displaying vintage cups and saucers. 
 Everything got a dust and a spruce up, l added here and subtracted there until l thought it looked ok and this is how it looks now....but minus the roses. (they're compost:-)
Mum's been loving me having my stall, cos she's been able to clear out things she hasn't known what to do with for years and thinks they're now serving a purpose??....she recently gave me this old black duck, which WAS going straight out to the Mill, but then l found the bird migration poster at the opshop, and then remembered l also had a bag of ducks and some fake eggs somewhere..... so a couple of pics needed to be taken before it went.

Isn't the poster a cracker!! 
 This is the dresser before the new paint job. You prob'ly think it looks better here.... but hey, sometimes we just want a bit of a change:-)

Hope you all enjoy a fantastic weekend, thanks so much for stopping in for a visit.
