Okay, so I've been missing for awhile... blogging is a lot of work and I started feeling like it was consuming all of my time (or maybe I was putting to much focus on it and not on things I needed to be focusing on) so I took a little break. Or a long break! But one thing I realized while taking that break is that when I blog it motivates me to get stuff done.
When we found out we were pregnant in May 2011 I almost totally quit painting - I just didn't want to mess with it and I felt like I had more important things to do, like decorating a nursery! And now that our baby girl has arrived (5 months ago) I'm slowly getting back into the painting mode. And I'm loving it!! My husband and I went to several yard sales this past weekend and we got a lot of great deals. I've got two of the pieces finished and ready for The Depot - just have to get some "after" pictures of the pieces first.
In the meantime, I'll leave you with a couple of pieces I did "made over" awhile back:
*Both of these pieces went to The Depot and have been sold.*
I get a lot of emails about paint colors I used on particular pieces of furniture, so I'll be sure to include that info in the future. I did these two pieces last year and have no idea what I used, sorry!
It seems that Blogger has changed a bit in the time I've been gone, so if stuff looks a little wacky please just ignore it!
