As I had mentioned this all began with an idea in the basement and well, as I also mentioned, I am still in the basement!
Welcome to my office. I thought my first blog post on this site should be me showing you where this sanding and priming is taking place.
I'm not sure about you, but personally I do really well when I have lots of projects going on at once. There are just times that after I begin a project I get a little stuck and cannot see it all the way through. I lose inspiration and need time to set it aside and not work on it for a while until the inspiration comes back. Don't get me wrong, an unfinished project drives me a little batty, but I simply cannot finish it until the inspiration is there (or until my 4 children are not in my way) and often times other projects help inspire each other.
So while I let one project sit and rest, I begin another project. I actually cannot wait to start on the secretary you see in this photo. I picked out my finishes for it already (which I will keep a secret) but to ensure that I was satisfied with the finishes I chose to use them on a smaller piece to be sure I was going to love it on such a beautiful secretary desk as the one in the photo! And guess what?!? I did love it on the smaller piece so it won't be long now. You'll just have to wait for it's reveal.
In the upcoming blogs I'll show you the gun cabinet I turned into an awesome Camo Curio! I have a cute little "Bumpkin Patch" craft for you to do with your kiddos that you're going to love and I'll show you how NOT TO sew a bench seat cover. Very exciting stuff, I know. So look for it. It is coming...
I am a mother of 4 small children. I am happiest when I am busiest and if the kids don't keep me busy enough I need projects to fill my days. I love Jesus and I love my family and I love the chaos around me for it brings the calm.
