They call it serendipity.
A few boards Mod Podged with scrapbook paper were on the floor, waiting for the next step: stenciling with paints.
I took a break to open a really special package that arrived from Hammer & Hand Imports. It’s an old piece of weathered painted wood from India, and it’s going back to India. It will go under a granite counter in the India pied-à-terre’s master bathroom.
