My New Favorite Furniture Wax~Before & After

I bought this antique pine cabinet many years ago and have used it in numerous homes.  The piece is from the early 1800's and probably from Scandanavia.   For years I have thought about painting or white washing it but just couldn't get up the courage to do it.

The other day I decided since this cabinet will probably always have a place in our home so why not go ahead and make changes.  Why live with something you like but not necessary love?

After looking at many paint treatments on Pinterest and researching options I decided to try Liming Wax.  It was super easy to apply and I love the new look.  The change is subtle but tones down the orange of the pine and fits better with our coastal style.

My Mini Break From Everyday Life.

Hi Everyone.  

I hope you are having a nice weekend.

We had the grand kids visiting for the last six days.  Steve took the grand kids home yesterday and he is spending the weekend with dad at his house.  This gave me two days of peace and quite...no cooking, cleaning and no responsibilities!  

You will find me here enjoying my much needed break.  This is the perfect day to try out the new
pool floats. 

Tonight I am thinking of ice cream for dinner and eating Nutella straight from the jar.  

What would you do with 24 hours with no responsibilities?
