Front Corner Continued

Well, it's not like I was going to stop finding great "finds"...I should have known :)

By the way...the new blinds are coming tomorrow. I don't THINK I'll have a chance to make any changes before then!!

The cabinet is a gun display cabinet, but not after I add new hardware and door pulls and paint it white!

Also, apparently, the sofa belongs to Sydney :) Again, I should have known! Before this sofa, her little eyes barely cleared the window. She's so happy now! As you can see, this was before I draped the quilt over it...

And so the evolution's going to be a looooong winter when it gets too cold to paint furniture!!

Have a great week!

Picker Interrupted...

Hello to everyone who has been so nice to stick with me!! I have many distractions keeping me from what I love - I did not even hit a single garage sale this week :( I'm planning to get back on track in the next couple of weeks, but for now I need to focus on my day job so that I can eat :).

I am living vicariously through all your blogs!! Hope to have some pictures & fun stuff soon!

Student Desk

Well, I just can't seem to shake this's a good think I spent a long weekend two weeks ago working on so many projects, and last weekend moving everything into my new shed, and clear out my work space. I feel like I haven't left my sofa since, during free time - I hate head colds!

So here is one of my projects that I did before I got sick...transforming this little student desk. I almost ruined it trying to figure out how to use a paint sprayer (which I never did learn how to use), so I'm very happy to have it finished!

The den is still being transformed...I sold the coffee table in the picture & temporarily replaced it with the square Ikea table (which will most likely get a "farm table make-over" in the near future). I'm working on window treatments & wall decor, but I'm pretty pleased so far - it is very toned-down from vibrant reds in addition to the yellow.

Hope you all have a great week!

In The Way of Junking...

First it was the holiday weekend, which I spent hauling unfinished pieces out of my garage and into my new shed. Be a sport & look at my "unfinished pieces" page...I took pictures of everything :)

Then I got sick.

Then drama at my day job.

So...I miss my junking life, but have not been able to do anything while nursing my headache and brushing up my resume!

I'm enjoying reading all of your blogs & hope to update mine soon!!
