Rush Before Summer!

Why do I always get in way over my head with too many projects?? My kids  have unfortunately or maybe fortunately  caught the “let’s renovate our room” bug from their mother and I have to pay the price. Ugh! Ok let’s dig deep and find a little more energy.

Project- they both want their rooms redecorated.   Ok if you clean your rooms I…ahem.. I am mean WE will do it together.

Project #1: Tackle my daughter’s desk.

Ok I know I know it looks quiet young-looking and yes a little outdated but, I must admit I have a little attachment to this desk.

Yes, this was once my desk growing up. Where does the time go?

I can’t part with it yet.  I am thinking bright white lacquer

and glass knobs.

For an updated look that my little tween will love, with her approval of course.

Project #2- Tackle my growing and active son’s simple little night stand.

It’s a small little night stand currently some sort of washed out beige with  but, it does have dovetail drawers a requirement in my book!

I am thinking simple black

with brushed aged bronzed knobs for this project.

I will keep you posted with this little project it’s 5 am, I am finishing my coffee and I am once again ready to start my day.

Thank goodness my husband takes care of the yard!

What are you doing today? Just get it done!

A lover of unique antique furniture with history and character. I take great joy in discovering forgotten pieces. Pieces that most people would pass by. I have such a passion for discovering, refinishing and repurposing great furnishings. I shop consignment shops, thrift stores, craigslist and of course antique shops to find those special unique pieces. I paint, sand, antique, glaze whatever it may be to bring new life to old furnishings. My life is full of family, good health, happiness, careers, and a very happy well loved home. I have very much to be thankful for in this world that I live today.
