This adorable cabinet spent 11 years in Anna's room. But now Anna is 11 and is Middle School and has opinions of her own. I was not counting on that when this cabinet was purchased. Or the wrought iron bunny bed that I saw in Better Homes and Gardens three years before she was born and dreamed about until she was big enough to be in a bed. Or what about that super adorable vintage bunny baby blanket that I had at the end of her bed until this year?
As alarming as this growing up thing is, the truth is that this was always really my cabinet. I'm the one who picked it and loved it. So if Anna wants hot pink and green magnetic boards in it's place, well so be it. It will always have a home in my studio. Today I finally got Kevin to hang it (it had been sitting in the upstairs hallway since May when we painted Anna's room.)
Now it proudly contains all my goodies and chatckies. And when Anna decides that I was right and vintage is cool, she simply can not have it back. No matter how much she begs.
