When I finished the cottage style dresser for the dining room, I moved my antique water bench to a wall in the kitchen. It looks so much better here with the black lower kitchen cabinets. I use this piece a lot when I serve buffet style meals or as a drink station. But, right now it’s being used to bring some much needed springtime into the kitchen!
The window pane mirror has special memories attached to it. When we first moved to Lancaster we attended a church that met in the upstairs of an old mill. When the church decided it was time to make the building more energy efficient and replace the original windows, I asked if I could have one of the window panes to keep. We replaced the glass with mirror and I’ve used this piece in many rooms through the years.
This little bench is a recent find from one of my favorite antique shops. I gave it a fresh coat of Annie Sloan Duck Egg Blue chalk paint and a mixture of dark and clear waxes.
The 3 tiered metal stand is filled with spring flowers and plants.
This leaping rabbit with a satchel filled with Easter eggs is made with sheep’s wool roving. The technique is called needle felting. Most of my needle felted creations have been sold over the years, but I haven’t been able to part with this little bunny! It’s one of my favorites!
