A minor miracle today--the baby took a good nap, and I had all the materials I needed to complete the armoire for our dining room. I gave the interior another coat of Walmart's high gloss Chinese Lantern. Painting its curved ceiling reminded me of James' ride inside the giant peach. This canteloupe color glows!
While the paint dries, I'm gathering miscellaneous pretties from around the house--small items not used elsewhere, art with a touch of green or orange, a marbled paper shade. The armoire must hold necessities like table linens and platters, too.
