One thing leads to another...

I was hoping to have a really cool completed project to show off, but it seems that I'm really good at starting projects....and not so great at getting them finished right away.  I'm in the process of redecorating our front room (the formals) and it seems that one thing just leads to another.  I tried to finish painting today but I ran out of paint.  I tried to sew curtains but I ran out of fabric.  I've got a great big armoire in the room that needs to find a new home but I can't seem to get anyone to take it off my hands.  See why I can't get anywhere??  :)

I wanted to post something though so I'm including some pictures of a few things I've been doing the past couple of weeks.

This is a chair from our dining room table.  It used to be a plain oak color but I decided to give it a new look.  I've spray painted the chairs and rubbed a stain over that to give them a worn look.  A while back I saw a set of really cute chairs that had numbers on the head of the chair.  I cut out some vinyl with my cricut and this was the result:

Don't they just look happier???  I haven't gotten around to the table yet but I have fun stuff planned for it too!

I also got busy in the kitchen this week and painted one whole wall with chalkboard paint.  At first glance it just looks like a black wall, but the chalk tends to give it away.  It's really hard to photograph but if you look closely, you'll see "welcome" written on the wall.  Reese has really had fun with this.  I envision schoolwork and to do lists all over that wall! 

So maybe I have finished a few things.  Small things but things none the less.  I've got some really big reveals coming up though, so be sure to check back in!

  1. You are the craftiest person I know! I am painting my pantry doors with chalkboard paint when we redo the kitchen. Great minds think alike!
