Getting Back

I am finally getting back into who I used to be. I pretty much quit doing everything for about four months. Here is a picture to show why. . .

So hopefully more post, and back to putting things in my Etsy shop!
Like this little cutie, I just listed today!

Anyway, we will see I am just glad that I am feeling like working!
Hopefully I will be back to my before and after's soon.
Only problem is I am not finding the furniture like I used too.

Beach Inspired

Well I started this redo weeks ago but, I am just now finishing. It took forever, but she is done now. This started out as one of those 60's ugly blondes, then at one time it was black and in my kitchen, now she is officially ready and needs a beach near her. I will add her to my Etsy store later today.

and the AFTER

Oh and I took these today too. . .

Last Weekend

I finally got around to uploading some of the pictures I took last weekend. The hubby and I went away for the weekend. Before I show the pictures, (which I only have a couple today) let me just say that I am IN LOVE with this area. I lived about 20 minutes from here at one time, and have never been here. Well when I say in love I mean it. I have never felt this way about a place before. I know Josh thinks it is just another one of my crazy ideas, BUT I am serious I want to live here. It will have to be after the kids are graduated from school, but I can wait. I can't wait to go back! We stayed in Franklin Tennessee, and visited downtown Franklin, and Leiper's Fork (where I want to live). When I got to Leiper's Fork this pulled up outside the restaurant. . .

This is my dream car, and it's even painted the perfect shade of blue.

This is where we stayed. . .
I haven't got permission yet to give all the details but, if they do I will post more. This place was PERFECT! Josh and I both loved it, and gushed about it over and over.

We drove past this place several times, on the last day I asked Josh to pull over so I could take the picture. They had the most amazing garage, I should have taken a picture. I told Josh it was his and her garages, that would be absolute Heaven!

Yes the upstairs of the house is crooked. . .

Well, back to painting the living room! We will be listing in August, and even though that is months away, it will probaly take us that long to get everything done!

March Madness Sale

I love basketball! Played since I was 5, done when I was 18. I love to watch more then play now (probaly something to do with the shape I am in). I am having a March Madness Sale in my ETSY store this weekend. It is in honor of my Alma Mater "Murray State", and my HOME state and favorite team since I was a little girl "Kentucky"!

I am hoping to add more to my store, starting next week!

Off to a Romantic Getaway with my boyfirend and bestfriend (AKA husband)!!!

Can NOT Decide

I found the coolest chair in the world yesterday. I love, I mean LOVE it! It says "Gina" like nothing I have seen before. The problem is, do I sale or keep? I have always been able to part with most everything because, I can usually find something I like the same amount or more. But, this chair is different.

I think that I have came to the conclusion to keep it a while, and if I decide to sale it will be for ALOT of dinero. Yes, I can be baught. . .well my furniture can at least! What do you think? Sale or keep?

Where have you been?

Not that anyone is asking that. . . but the answer is nowhere. The computer has not been hooked up for about a month, due to new floors, wood and then carpet. As I type this I sit on
my master bedroom floor, which is where I finally said enough and hooked up the computer yesterday. The only other furniture in here at the moment is our bed, which is on the floor. Can you say college days? Come to think of it, my college bedrooms were not this bad. But, I am very positive that all this is going to pay off, when we sell the house in a few months and are DEBT FREE!!!
So since my absolute favorite thing to see is before and afters, here is my most recent. This coffee table is my brother-in-laws (Zack). His parents gave him this for his first apartment. To make the story full circle, my oldest daughter spilled nail polish remover on the top, while painting her nannie's fingernails, and ruined it. They gave it to him, and then he asked me to redo it. He picked out the color, and I said the rest was up to me. Yes you read that right "I" said. Well I love how she turned out, I hope he will like it, he told me on the phone he is sure he will like it (sweet kid)!



Not sure about the knobs, bought different ones but...don't like those either. I am just going to have to come up with something!

Hope you have a great day!!!

Just Because...

I was fooling around on Picnik, and came up with this.

I have posted it before, but just wanted to take a different look at it.

Still not done with the black and blue piece. I worked so hard taking off the vaneer I wanted to give my hands a rest. I also finished the fireplace and will show a before and after on that.

Well I want to get busy painting, I am BELIEVING that I will have the after for you by the end of the week.

Have a GREAT day!

Gaining Confidence

I am really not sure what happened to me in the last quarter of the year. October is my favorite month, but after that November and December seemed low. I told Josh I think that I do this every year. It is a roller coaster, and next year I am not taking the ride. But, that is behind me and I am feeling confident.

My sales at my booth are up, and I have decided that I am going to start my Etsy store back up. Here is what I am most excited for. . . I found a shop that is perfect for my furniture. I just snooped around the last time I was there, and introduced myself and what I do, you know planted the seed. I am going to put a portfolio together, and show it to the shop owner. Hopefully she will like my stuff, and I can start selling. Fingers crossed, please oh please let her like my creations.

Well I have a little teaser for today. I had hoped to be done with this yesterday, BUT you will have to wait for the reveal tomorrow.
I was half way done with painting it, when I tore off part of the vaneer (oh vaneer how I hate, I mean really dislike thee). But, I know it will turn out much better then expected now. The following pictures are the before and during process, tomorrow I will show you the finished product.

I don't know where my husband gets that I am so messy!

I tore off the bottom. She will get new legs tonight.

This is the route I am going, come back tomorrow and check her out!

Remember I am Believing in 100 followers by the end of the month. Considering it is the 25th, I am now holding out for a miracle!

Have a great day!
