I am afraid this post will make some of you cringe…a few years back, Mother travelled to China and brought back these gorgeous hand carved plaques from an antique store near the Great Wall in Beijing. The were promised to be hundreds of years old and taken from a bed. (Can you imagine?!?!)
As you well know, I am in the throes of a little guest suite gussy-up and, as I’m sure you’ve figured out by now, the plaques were not left unharmed. Rather, they received a fresh new coat of duck egg blue, natch. That’s right gals. My name is Amanda and I maimed two who-knows-how-old antique relics from China just so they’d look pretty in my guest room.
Seriously, I positively mad for the new do! After all, it was either a fresh coat of paint or the rest of eternity in the bowels of my closet.
Just a few more tweaks in the room and I’ll be ready to share!!
