Redecorating an Alcove

I have been working on Mom's old room.  I had the perfect day for it
today.  Rain with a minor thunderstorm.  A pot of hot tea and classical
music playing in the background.  Delightful decorating day.

I finished painting the occasional marble top table with Annie
Sloan's Old White.  I used it to paint the bust too.  I distressed the
table a bit but have yet to wax it.  I am painting so many items in
this room that I decided to wax everything at one time.

I want to find some French lace curtains to hang on the French doors.
I am looking for real statement panels.  I saw some panels at Soft
Surroundings that might be perfect.   I believe they have a pretty scalloped
edge and I do want them to puddle on the floor.  I also want to find
some antique books for the shelf at the bottom of the table.  These will
have to do for now.  

I can hardly wait to show you some of the other things I have painted.
As I teaser I will say that I am using Annie's chalk paint in
Provence.  I want this room to look like it could be in the south
of France.  That's it for today.  Have a good one!

Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley
