ANNE OF GREEN GABLES

++ANNE OF GREEN GABLES++

i was so excited about this cabinet when i found her at the
thrift store. i knew that she was going to be really special when i got done with her. very antique looking, i love the glass door and the carvings along the bottom. she was just asking to be bought. my fiance was with me the day we got her hes actually the one who spotted her.
i also knew she wanted to be green- think green.
i gave her the name 
ANNE OF GREEN GABLES 
after the novel-

i took loads of pictures
here we go-

the before...




AND FOR THE REVEAL..
THE AFTER...







i did a little photo shoot with her and im in love. i hope you love her too.
