Here is someone who caught my attention, when she did this:
Yowzer girlfriend! This is what i call cahones! Because you see, I happen to own the same (or almost the same piece of furniture) but i was too CHICKEN. All I could muster was a measly coffee table painted blue, and I thought I was brave. See:
Alison, of My Little Happy Place seems to me like a fearless woman. She's from texas but is creating a new life for herself in a BRAZIL. She's a law graduate who is following her passion for design. Her blog is full of the kind of stuff that makes me look: great images, a sense of humour, a passion for life and real life adventures and challenges.
Also, she's a Hidden in France sponsor as of last week.
Check her out. I asked her 'what do you sell?' 'Nothing,' she said. I say nothing yet, but something tells me she has big plans. People who paint their antiques a glossy shade of turquoise usually don't mess around.
Oh, and she is redoing her house one room at a time, and you can see for yourself in these before and after pictures.
