A Cabinet makeover and a successful day at Patine

Hello Everyone!
I hope you are all having a great week!
I wanted to share a few pictures of a cabinet that is getting a mini makeover.
I have had this cabinet for almost 4 years and haven't painted the inside yet.
I am not sure why it took me so long to start this project.
It is almost finished,
so I feel comfortable showing you the before pictures!
I am really happy with how it is turning out.

I also wanted to show you a few pictures of some of the items I bought when I went to Patine on Saturday.
You will not believe what they were giving away every half hour!

I couldn't believe it.
When you walk into the door you get a raffle ticket.
I went with my daughter so we each got a raffle ticket.
Dani told me they were doing a giveaway every half hour.
I was there almost two hours before I realized what they were giving away!
Pillows made from french ticking!
Guess who won one!
Thanks Eric and Dani!
This is the pillow I won and it will be going into my boys room.
A lot of you have requested that I show you pictures of my boys room, well
hopefully by the end of the summer my boys room will be completed, and then I will show you pictures of their room, I promise!

Then they had these beautiful Euro Shams for just $10.00 a piece.

These are the three euro shams I picked out.
I wanted them to all be different styles.
I bought them for my bedroom.
I will show you a better picture of all three of them when my bedroom is finished.

I love the color of this french ticking.

Here is a picture of Lauren, Eric, and Dani at Patine.

I took a few pictures of their store for all of you like I promised!
It was really worth the three hour drive.

I am so glad I went!
I hope you are all having a great week.

Hi Maria!

I would gladly drive more than 3 hours to end up in a place like this. What a fantastic store!! (and you stayed for 4 hours, you are mad ;)) Gosh I am in love with their body pillows too. They are gorgeous in faded blue. Could you send one to me?? ;) We can`t get enough pillows can we..

Have a wonderful new week, and thank you for all the beautiful images!

gorgeous treasures- your images are always amazing and I love the cabinet.

Andi's English Attic said...

Congratulations on the win. What a great trip and a great shop. xx

Anne Lorys said...

Ticking all by itself is fabulous, add "free" to the mix and it's out-of-this-world! Talk about right place at the right time. :-)


Kasey said...

I will have to hit that shop when i head to cali this fall.

Dallas Shaw said...

Jacqueline @ HOME said...

Dear Maria,
What a fantastic shop. I am now stamping my feet in the style of a two year old child and shouting 'I want to go there '!!!!!!!
How great to have won a gorgeous cushion as well. I think that you definitely deserved that, as you made such an effort to drive such a long way.
I love the white monogrammed cushion as well....just beautiful.
I am so looking forward to seeing yours and the boys bedrooms.
Have a lovely week, Maria. XXXX

Love the body pillow the best, Maria. Everything's beautiful though... it would be so hard to choose. Thanks for the tour, glad you had fun.

Passionate for White said...

Love your new headed picture!

Robin Johnson said...

Gorgeous cabinet, can't wait to see your finished product.

Looks like you had a great time shopping. Your finds are perfect!

Seawashed said...

I'm going to try and visit their store this summer. I think it is about a 3 hr. drive for me too. I really like the gentleness of Patine's style and how Dani dresses.

Lara said...

I agree with the above commenter gals, you are just a magnet for finding the best shoppes & stuff! :)) Those pillows are sooo good looking!! I love the body pillow especially because it's one of my fave colours: sun-bleached blue! Their shop looks really lovely. And your cabinet - is not complete?!! It looks incredible already, but I can understand your need to fix it a little more. Can't wait to see the after post!
