Our house is just getting better and better. We spent all spring working on the landscaping (my input was dictating where things should go considering I have a "bun in the oven"), and we have also been working on some projects for the inside of our house.
(Notice our new shutters...they defnitely gave the house a more "finished" look.)
John Bar and Dustin made our cute mailbox, and I LOVE it. They did a great job.
We re-finished this desk that we bought at a yard sale a while back. $30 was all we paid for this beauty. I would say that's fair considering the spiders, spider eggs, and gross-ness that came with it. YUCK.
Thanks to Tiff for her generosity in sharing this wonderful site that has great ideas for re-finishing furniture! I used this "glazing" technique for my next two projects, and it turned out great! It was exactly what I needed to brighten up my living room. It just needed...something...and I couldn't be happier with the outcome.
Chas gave me this cute shelf....BEFORE
END TABLES- $15 each off of KSL...I love bargain shopping!
(before glazing that is)
My sweet hubby had them painted for me when I got home from work so that all I had to do was glaze. Thank you babe! We didn't get a before picture cause we completely spaced it, but they had that 70's-80's look to them...a dark brown, wood look with bright gold handles...no so cute. But, now, they are just perfect;)
I LOVE OUR HOME!
Next, the babies room, and finishing our basement...;) Can't wait.
