{Guest Post: Maria}

Dear Friend, 

my guest post serie go on and this week the protagonist is Maria from Dreamy White.

Maria... It's a little bit difficult describe her because I don't want to devalue her with my words.
I've met her few months ago. Federica introduced me to her amazing, cozy and literally "pure heaven" blog.
She interviewed me 2 weeks ago and today she returned the favour writing for me!

She 's a 34 years old girl, with a beautiful family and she has the  one of the most dificult job in the world. She's a mom, she's a wife she's the hub of her amazing family.

She married her sweet high school boyfriend... how romantic!!!

She has 5 children ... can you believe it!

She has a big family, she has a big house with a very big garden, she has a lot to do , she has a magnificent blog and now she's planning to opne her own online store.... Isn't it fantastic?
If you have ever visited her blog you should have seen her house. She has a thing for interior and she knows what and how to decorate an house!

Her "... interests include interior design, photography, graphic design, decorating for weddings, antiques, and just being creative. I have an addiction to painting everything white. I love to decorate. I believe you can create any space what you want it to be. (of course your husband has to be in agreement, right?) ..."

Once you'll visit her you'll never leave!
Trust me!


My name is Maria,
I first want to say thank you to Gaia for asking me to guest post for her, I am a big fan of Gaia's blog and am honored to be here.
I just recently painted the inside of my cabinet, which was inspired by Gaia's cabinet makeover.
After I saw Gaia's inspiring post on making over her beautiful antique cabinet,
I knew I had to paint the inside of my cabinet.
It is something I have been wanting to do for a long time, but I couldn't decide if I wanted to paint it a bright white or a gray.

I decided to paint the inside a very subtle gray.
It is called Horizon, a Benjamin Moore color.
I actually painted a brighter white as my base coat, which was called swiss coffee, and then lightly painted one coat of Horizon over the top of the swiss coffee color.
I like to layer two different whites when I paint my furniture.
This kind of gives a layering effect.

The outside of the cabinet was already this blue color when I bought it.
I was told the cabinet came from Europe.

I actually use it to store many different things.

I have used it to house our t.v.
However my husband now has a t.v. that is too big to fit in the cabinet.

I sometimes store my pillows in this cabinet, the ones shown are all made from vintage linens.

My sister and mom made all of the pillows you see in the cabinet.

I wanted to make sure I had my french ticking pillows in here, since I know Gaia loves stripes.

It came with chicken wire, which I love.
I also loved how Gaia added chicken wire to her cabinet.

I love the old hardware on this cabinet.

I love the doors.

It is the perfect cabinet to store my grain sacks in.

I am always changing around what I have
displayed in this cabinet.

Thank you Gaia for asking me to guest post for you!
I hope to someday travel to Italy and meet all of you amazing girls from Italy!
I hope you are all having a great week!
Take Care,

So, I wasn't wrong! She's amazing. Can you imagine how beautiful her store will be?
Thank you Maria for such a sweet post!
You have a unique talent and a beautiful soul...
and your cabinet and your pillows are really beautiful!

Have a hot sunny day!

p.s.: Girls .... I'm so touched from all of your comments!
You made my day everyday!
love you!
