Meet Patience, everyone!!!
That stood in an old second hand shop window - filled with filthy plastic Elvis Presley paraphernalia
How much is that Armoire in the window ( you know the tune of that song, right? ) the lady sang out.
The Armoire's heart began beating - could this be the one? Would someone finally be taking her
home and show her a little love? Or would this be another disappointing window shopper -
Wait a minute.....................she's negotiating....................now she's having a discussion with her
better half about how they can actually get me home.........................AND YES................money
is being transferred between hands......................
MY NEW APPLIQUES!!!
I'VE BEEN MONOGRAMMED - I'M HERE TO STAY!!!
MY CROWNING GLORY!
EVERY LADY NEEDS A LITTLE BLING
AND I'M DONE!!!
I FEEL PRETTY - AND WITTY AND -
BTW - bought this last summer and just got around to finishing it now so she does have patience.
And that is what she will be known as from here on in...............
No wonder she's singing
this is too hilarious - because I giggle sometimes when I write up my posts - and so I just read the post to John thinking it was cute - he actually put his head in his hands and shook it and then dead serious he said to me " I think you're off the wall, you know - what the hell kind of post is that?"
It's my kind of post John, it's mine..........................

It's a you kind of post Suzan. All you.ReplyDelete
I love your post! Sometimes I crack myself up too. The armoire is a terrific storage piece for your linens. I too am on the lookout for something like that because I have no linen closet on the main floor of my house. Yours turned out great, and I really like the two colors and the monogram. Thanks for visiting.ReplyDelete
I like this post. I was giggling while reading this because it reminds me of myself. I love this armoire. It is beautiful and there is so much you can do with it, great find.ReplyDelete
Perfect, imagine, you also can use it as a book shelf or everything you want, perfect, simply perfectReplyDelete
I get it. I get your post. Because we do infuse personality to our pieces. She's a gorgeous gal!!!ReplyDelete
Following you...enjoyed looking at your before and aftersReplyDelete
Your armoire is wonderful ... love the shades you painted it.ReplyDelete
Very funny ... Love it and you did a beautiful paint job on her. Husbands sometimes hate to admit that we are funny.ReplyDelete
Thanks for visiting me at Timeless Treasures. I will be a new follower for you and come back for more entertainment.
Love, love, love it! Much better than before.ReplyDelete
I absolutely LOVE it!!! I have been seeing a lot of these on Craigslist lately & some call them " Bride's Cabinets "--I call yours BEAUTIFUL and extremely brilliant the way you are using it!ReplyDelete
Thanks so much - I've never heard it called that before - but love it!Delete
So sweet looking!ReplyDelete

You did such a great job on this. Thank you so much for linking with "Wednesdays Adorned From Above Blog Hop". Hope you link again this Wednesday.ReplyDelete
Oh she is a beauty that deserves to sing! Nicely done!ReplyDelete

Too funny! She looks wonderful with her new paint job.ReplyDelete
Visiting from Debbiedoos.
She is a doll, for sure. I just love all of the classy adornments and the colours are to die for. Well done.ReplyDelete
I have an armoire/china cabinet just like this one and I've been dying to get my hands on it for a makeover. Yours looks FANTASTIC! Nice job. I love the color combination and the monogram. Well done! Thank you for taking the time to link it up at Transformation Tuesday at The Ironstone Nest. Come back again! XO LauraReplyDelete
Tell him that furniture does have its own soul...its own history...and maybe, just maybe, your armoire was a singer in a past life! :)ReplyDelete
I love this piece..so curvaceous and fancy. Yet such a simple beauty. Perfect.
Stop by and say hi sometime...I just found you through the newbie party!

Came over from DIY to see the armoire. Beautiful job! I name all my pieces that I transform - it gives them personality and leads me in the right direction to choose paint colors. But you are in too deep when you put your monogram on something - it will stay forever! She turned out very sexy and classy at the same time - hard to do!ReplyDelete

Just stunning!!! I ♥ it! Found you at DIY Dreamer and I'm now a follower. Would love to have you stop by for a visit! Happy 4th ~ JudyReplyDelete
ROFLOL!!!!! The Hubby does me that way, too.ReplyDelete
GORGEOUS armoire!! You did a wonderful job!!
I love this! I keep searching in hopes of finding something awesome like this that I can redo. I want a hutch for my dining room, but not a humongous hutch, so I'm still searching. Something like this would probably work great.ReplyDelete
Awesome job! I'd love for you to link this up to my party. http://www.jamscorner.com/search/label/Monday%20Party
Have a great evening!
Great post! And your armoire turned out lovely!ReplyDelete

Wow isn't it amazing what some paint can do for a piece of furniture. I'm just beginning to do some of this to furniture too.ReplyDelete
I love it! The monogram is awesome and I like the gray details. You saved it from a life of Elvis and looking sad!ReplyDelete
