Hello and a Sneak Peak...

I'm sorry it's been so long between posts. I'm just getting over a cold and sinus infection. I started what was supposed to be a real quick redo of our guest bath before I got sick. It's not quite finished, but I'll give you a sneaky peek at my inspiration...
This is only part of the mess I created for my family to walk around. There's lots more around the corner. Why does it take every tool in the garage to complete the simplest tasks?

Here's a before photo of another little side project I picked up yesterday. I have several old spoons that I'd like to display, so I'm re-vamping this old 70's looking thing. I've got some plans for him...



Have a great weekend!

Whatcha Working on Wednesday...

It's Wednesday again, and I have a few finished projects to share this week. First is this little red bench. I found it unfinished at the TS for $2, just your basic little pine piece from a craft store. I had a before picture, but it's disappeared from the memory stick. My husband gets delete happy sometimes, though he normally asks. Anyway, I knew it would be perfect to stack on the antique grey stool, so I really beat it up and rounded off the egdes to age it. It's not quite as bright as it appears, but I used two shades of red, so you can see both as well as the wood in the worn places. I found that funky handcarved bunny the same day, and he looks quite at home in this rustic little spot. I also finished up the needlepunch from a few weeks ago. I haven't decided what I will do with it, but for now, it looks fine on Emma's lap.And last, here's a closer shot of the burlap pillow I finished a few days ago. I like the contrast of the rough texture next to the paisley cushions.So that's what's keeping me busy around here, along with all the usual Mom stuff. Be sure to stop by My Country Home and see what Leslie and all her creative friends are up to!
