Repurposing furniture is currently where it’s at. This little cutie wasn’t nearly as memorable when it was plain white.
Measles? Maybe. Whimsical? Definitely! It goes with the fun that is this little girl’s princess, fairy tale room.
And it reminds me of a poem by Gerard Manley Hopkins:
Glory be to God for dappled things—
For skies of couple-colour as a brinded cow;
For rose-moles all in stipple upon trout that swim;
Fresh-firecoal chestnut-falls; finches’ wings;
Landscape plotted and pieced—fold, fallow, and plough;
And áll trádes, their gear and tackle and trim.
All things counter, original, spare, strange;
Whatever is fickle, freckled (who knows how?)
With swift, slow; sweet, sour; adazzle, dim;
He fathers-forth whose beauty is past change: Praise Him.
Thank you for indulging my foray away from paint and into poetry for a moment.
There are sure to be other bunny trails in the future. Stay tuned.
