Coming Soon!

I know I promised pictures, but the day got really crazy, and I just couldn't get to it. I just didn't want to let the day pass without noting on here that I did intend to, but I just wasn't able. Tomorrow? I hope so. Only time will tell.

Time after time...

I swear I have a tendency to get lost in life and I forget to post on my bloggety blog, but I keep coming back to my happy little place to record my comings and goings. So I am back, and I promise (myself at least) that I am back on a more regular basis, instead of my sporadic posts with too much time passing in between. I have some projects I have completed, as well as some that I am working on. A little girls play kitchen, reupholstering  parsons dining chairs, putting a new tabletop on my pedestal, and a few more things to boot. Will post again tomorrow with some pictures. :)

My first build project coming soon!

I have been wanting to start building things on my own so that I no longer have to rely on hubby to get around to doing things... and I settled on building a wastebasket for my bathroom. It is wooden and a little larger than your standard bathroom wastebasket, but to be honest, I HATE those tiny restroom wastebaskets that have no lid and then anyone who comes to visit and uses the bathroom sees all that ickiness! So my wastebasket will have a hinged lid as well. I am about halfway done, and I am trying to take pics along the way, but always forget, so forgive me if when I post the pics they aren't as detailed as they should be. Wish me luck on completion! Here are some inspiration pictures that I used to come up with my plan for my wastebasket.

It has been nearly an entire year since I last posted anything on my blog. I got very busy as I enrolled in school full time and plan on going for my masters in Occupational Therapy. I hope to work with kids if possible. However, I am back, and pray that I find the time to post daily. I am still attempting to make changes to the house but have been having a difficult time doing so financially. So not very much has changed around the house, but I will post a few changes soon. It feels good to be back.

SOOOOO my daughter is now telling me that she is not sure about the green and pink. Jeez. Good thing all I have been able to do so far was a freaking box. lol. I think since I am going all shabby chic I will go that route in her room too. YAY! I think it will be beautiful. Stay tuned for a new mood board for her room. :) woot woot!

omg omg omg omg omg!!! I have completely changed my whole idea on how I want my house to look. I have seen so many beautiful rooms that look well loved and comfortable, and just HOME-Y! I am completely in love with Shabby Chic! I mean look at this beautiful sofa!

Could anything look comfier than that!? This sofa is of a price that I could never ever afford over at cottagechicstore.com. I know with my kids it may be impossible to go white.. so I may try an off white or linen or something like that... I dont know. I am just dying to cozy up with a book on a sofa like that! Gina at The Shabby Chic Cottage found this one at rooms to go, but for some reason I can not seem to find it on the website! grrrrr. I will be patiently waiting for lovely miss Gina to kindly tell me the name so i can harrass my local rooms to go about it..

Oh and if you take the time to check out the loveliness at cottage chic store, you will see why if I EVER EVER EVER can afford to... I will have them come redecorate my home for me. I am pretty sure that I could never in a million years come up with anything so absolutely lovely as what they have to offer on their website. I just love them. ::sigh:: ( daydreaming about all the lovely things I want...)

Sit back and relax

I just finished reupholstering this beautiful Ethan Allen Wingback chair. I used a shantung in "Spa Blue". After I put all the fabric on I put on nailhead trim. I think it looks beautiful. I am now going to sell it. :) I would keep it but it would only be mistreated by my kids. I would be so upset if anything got on it!

After :)
