When Derek brought home a gorgeous 1940’s walnut set of furniture, I very quickly decided I would sell the buffet but keep the matching hutch for
The buffet (which I painted a creamy heirloom white and re-stained the top provincial) sold within a day down at

So many things in her room are a reflection of how I feel about her.
