I apologize for ignoring you all so long. I have been crazy busy at work and I have been steadily working on furniture at home but nothing spectacular. By spectacular I mean that mainly I have been painting end tables (four of them) and finally finished my third sewing cabinet to beverage station. It has been hard work, and very satisfying, but I know that most of you will not be that interested. It feels sort of been there, done that. I have already told you all how I paint stuff and walked you through the process of turning a sewing cabinet into a beverage station. Here are some pictures of the current work:


The color is Behr Intoxication. It is a bright kiwi color, but the photos look Limey.




If you want the DIY on this project, here it is Beverage Station

I was given an antique wash stand that was in pretty rough shape. Here it is after I already stripped the top.


Silly me. I don’t have my picture from when we brought it home. This is going to be a gift for a friend.

My friend chose yellow for the washstand. I chose Behr Bicycle Yellow.

Here is the remade version.



I am also working on another mid century modern piece. The headboard will go with night stand that is done and upcoming dresser.

Here is the night stand.


The headboard is going to be a mix of sea salt white and stain just like the night stand.

So far I have it sanded, painted, and ready for stain… Once I finish cleaning up the places where it bled under the tape. Grrr.



This week I will have a couple of projects completed that are fun, easy and a little different. I am picking up some fun stuff tonight and will have to ask your opinion on one of the projects.

I hope you are all doing well and enjoying the warmer weather.
