Sold the girls vanity today. With each sale I feel more comfortable with my skills as "repurposer". Is that a word? It is now! Have a great rest of the weekend.

Some new things

Just some pieces that I'm going to be working on. I have to make myself get out to the garage. Never mind it is 110* with humidity at 30%. Swampbutt! Sorry if that offends it's just the truth. Have a great weekend.

Antique Dixie commode. Love the retro lines.

A big heavy coffee table that I haven't quite figured out what I'm going to do it yet.

A great dresser set with mirror that I have already finished! (In my mind) lol

A mission style lift top coffee table redo with expresso stain finish on top. Painted and glazed. Just waiting for finish poly coat.

Tuesday already?

So I sold the tin dresser on Friday and I will have to say it was a big learning experience. Metallic paint is so finicky. I of course, turned around and bought 3 more pieces to put in my already full garage. I have really been getting into couponing lately. It saves me loads of money but it also feeds my anal need to organize and review numbers. Happy Tuesday!

It is so hot here in AZ, supposed to be 113 degrees today. Makes for very little time to work on things in the garage. And lots of sweat. In places I don't like to have sweat. I did however get to stripping a end table and am keeping it pure with just a restain/finish. The top has a beautiful inlay. When I went to look at the coffee table we bought at the same time I was excited to find out that they were a set. Didn't go with husband to pick up and they've been sitting around under stuff for so long I guess I never paid attention. Here is a little picture of the top.

I'm so far behind on everything. I had wonderful intentions to really dive into learning how to make my blog better.  After a pit stop in Indiana I had a hell of a time trying to get back on track.  It's been so hot in Arizona that it has made it impossible to be out in the garage sanding, painting, sealing and working. I've been feeling guilty about not keeping up. And at the same time I am still wanting to be creative in other ways.  I love to cook, paint, write, read and so I've realized that I should turn this into a all purpose blog! I can write about things other than the furniture which for the time being has taken a back seat. I'm still picking up super pieces. Fourteen+ projects that sit just waiting for a little cooler weather.  Creative madness mess, here I come!! :)

Garage sales

I love going to garage sales on Saturday with the family.  My husband finds some of the best furniture to redo. Anyway here are a few gems that I picked up.

Love the vintage stand and scroll work on the lamp bases. Have a great weekend!
