In early 2010 I painted this piece for our own home. We needed some extra storage and I wanted to bring a bit of the unexpected to a traditional and formal dining room.
It was a mix of harlequin, leopard print, stripes and florals.
It only remained in our dining room for about a year.
I had procrastinated, I was running out of time before the Traveling Door sale and I needed more of my painted pieces to sell. So I decided that I would part with this one and worry about replacing it later.
The woman that purchased it nearly five years ago just recently moved away and decided that the piece wouldn't be going with her. So unbeknownst to me, my BeColorful creation moved on once more.
Last week I was quite surprised to see it again. I had gone with my mom to visit one of her friends and there, as we turned the corner just past the entry way, sat the unconventional and colorful side board that I had painted almost six years ago.
It was like seeing an old friend.
I love how she has styled it. The mirror and the martini bearing huntsman could not be any more perfect with this piece.
I'm so glad to see that it has such a good home.
