Chippy Paint Update

The early trip to Leesburg was a complete success!  I dragged Hubby with me on Saturday night, and we trekked an hour out of the city to see a beautiful, blue-painted antique mantel in person.  I found this lovely piece on Craigslist, and the price was right – just $45!

Unfortunately, she didn’t fit in the back of my baby SUV, but with a bit of rope, some creativity and lots of prayer, we were able to rig her up on the roof and safely make the drive back into the city.  Now she’s parked in the living room, waiting until the weekend to be built out into a full TV cabinet and painted creamy white.

Here’s a preview:
