Lofty Ideas

I've been waiting until the loft was perfect to post it but I finally realized it's never going to be. Now if you're telling yourself  'She has six kids. This is so staged. " You'd be right. lol There aren't usually flowers (or more importantly a bowl of water with flowers) on the table and candles burning but hey, it looks nice in the photos. :o)
The armoire is from my sister. It was originally the top half of a set so we put legs and appliques on it and painted it white. (see a pattern forming? lol)
I wrapped most of our books in white paper (thank you Romantic Homes for that idea) and my plan is to one day stamp the titles on the spines with pretty colors and designs. I also have plans to make cord covers for the sconces. One day.... *sigh* 
Thanks for stopping by! xoxo

Oh My! I am thrilled to have found your sweet blog! What a delight! I LOVE your white furniture, especially your piano! It turned out beautiful! Do you strip or sand the paint first before you spray paint?! I am impressed! Now off to put you in my favorites! Have a wonderful day!

Rose darling, it is simply divine!! I too have the same exact coffee table, we have good taste don't we? I have turned my office into a shabby chic room, isn't working on tranforming a dream!! I looked for a follower button to join but didn't see one. I am going to place a link to your blog on mine through beau-TEA-ful friends blog, come and visit my cottage and if you have a moment, stop and join my followers, I want more people to visit your site. You are an inspiration.

This is a really cute blog. I hope you post again soon. :-) But, I can understand you would be quite busy with 6 children. Very pretty living room. :-)
