Here We Go!!

This is the first post of my new blog. I've had the blog set up for several months, but just couldn't seem to get it quite the way I wanted it. I guess it will be an on going process for a while.

I'm pretty sure that I won't blog everyday. I'm amazed at people who can work an outside job, refinish or repaint furniture, take pictures of it and then post EVERY day!!! Of course, I have to admit that I am disappointed when one of my favorite bloggers misses a day, but everyone deserves to take a day off from blogging.

Mostly, this will be a venue for me to show the projects I am working on. I have a booth at Urban Suburban and I spend almost every weekend working on projects for that. I never seem to be at a loss for something to work on.
Here are a few of my past projects.

This was a little bench that my daughter found in a dumpster (I've taught her well).

This is how it looked after paint and recovering the seat

This mirror just refused to sell.

So I decided to turn it into a message board. It sold in less than a week.

This was a curbside find that my daughter discovered one night.

And here it is in the "after" picture. It lookes like it has 14 drawers, but there are only 5.

This is my lastest project. I bought this at a yardsale.

And this is the "after." I used a silver paint pen to outline the little flower on the drawer. The knob is just an old one I had in my craftroom and spray painted silver.

This is a door from an old armoir that was not salvageable. Makes a great message board, though.

That's all for now. This weekend will be busy. I have an entire bedroom suite that I am working on!
