A few changes to a fabulous piece!


To this from that.... I didn't have a before picture, but I ran into a Antique Store and their it was in the original form and for a lot more money.  I purchase mine at a local Sell Site and got it much cheaper.  Besides being painted I added a few changes to it.




  This gem is in my Family Room and it certainly comes in handy with the drawers. 

 For some odd reason my photo's are not coming out as good as I want them too... not sure why. :-(

Anyways, I added some goodies on top.




To me this is the fun part setting up vignettes instead of painting. Not to fond of painting, yet that's all I do is paint everything.  lol  



The picture frame in the background is something I created.  I got rid of the original flower photo's and used some appliques that were in my home.     




I'm using touches of brown for the family room mixed with all my other favorites colors of white, cream, and pink.  More pictures to come within the weeks ahead. 

Have a Super Day

MAKE OVER*



MAKE OVER-  On a small side table that was once black and a man's black leather case that my husband was going to throw out, but he checked with me first If I wanted it.  I believe he is starting to get it... knowing I can turn it into something nice.  :-)




Until next time...

It's getting there... My Home That Is :-)


Finally, It's starting to feel like home after such a long ordeal in making it the way I want it to be.  Still much more to do, but at least it's showing some interest....lol  
Stay tune for some photo's in the near future. 

Enjoy your Weekend

Same Lamps, But..




I bought these two identical lamps at a Goodwill... I painted them and gave each one a different look by creating lampshades that fits the areas of my home.
