To this day, I love it, but it may undergo another paint treatment when the weather cools off here. Something to look forward to.
I love the chippy paint that has cracked and peeled from several moves.

First, it was a disaster
And the kitchen as of today:
A chair that hasn't been recovered:
The chair that I finished last night
I love before's and after's. The lighter stripe really brightens the room. Don't laugh at the plastic coverings. . . . I do have 3 messy little ones.

My goal for the weekend was to find a desk for our office to replace our "college days" sauder desk. Don't get me wrong, our desk is ok, but I'd like something without a hutch so that I can follow through with this idea:

I picked these up at Goodwill for .50 each. They can't wait for their much-needed makeover.
I had no luck with the desk, so I moved on to this little stool that needs some loving tender care. It is just the right size for a piano bench . . . that may be what it actually is. It was 3.00.
I also snatched up these cute little apples and pears, 1.00 for the whole bunch.
This little potterybarn frame was 1.00 also. . .in perfect condition. (16.00 at Pottery Barn)
I always show the Golfer my deals. This time he said, "Wow, great deals, but you're getting too many projects." Ummmm, no, a girl can never have too many projects.

She's as good as new. I may add a stencil to the front later on.
And this oh-so-lovely little purse for $1.99. . . don't laugh if you were the one who threw it out/donated it. I think it has charm.
Here's what I've added to the front entryway along with the pictures of the family
I've also painted and the golfer and I. . . o.k. mostly the golfer. . . hung curtains in the living room. Now, I just need to add a little color.
The other day my friend was cleaning out her office and had a pile of frames to send to goodwill. I offered to drive the load to goodwill for her if I could snatch a few to repurpose.
