If I was half as good at blogging as I was at furniture...

Oh I am so horribly bad about blogging. I feel like I don't know what I am doing and it looks like crap, which it does. I'm wondering how much it would cost to hire a web designer/host? Is that what you even call it??? I have so many projects in the garage and the weather is making it absolutely impossible to finish anything. I'm feeling pretty useless. I did find a new color that I love for childrens furniture upcycles. Here is a picture of a little set that is ever so slowly getting done.

I haven't decided on all the details yet. To add a silver/pink glaze or distress. But I love the handles. Hopefully I can get up at like 5 am this weekend before the heat hits and finish this set off. There is a mirror that also goes with the set.

Garage sale stuff

Last weekend was a total bust at garage sales but this weekend made up for it. Here are some pictures of the new pieces I picked up. For cheap of course.

I don't usually buy shoes second-hand, call me a snob. But I found these in my size and they called my name. The price all but knocked my off my feet. $0.50 !! Say what?!?!  I wore them out that night with husband for date night and they hurt.  Look at the platform. I'm already a tall girl but these were over the top.  Love the details.  I didn't even wait to get them home and cleaned up before I took this picture.

Have a great week.

Newly refinished mission style coffee table with lift out top and storage.  This was my first time using Martha S. glaze and I really enjoy the result.  Expresso stain top.
