Cock-a-doodle-do...


Look who finally made it to my house! Hobby Lobby was holding him hostage...what was I to do? His ransom was 50% off this week! I couldn't just leave him!

Laundry sign and message board...



I bought a old picture at a garage sale Saturday and painted the frame and painted a laundry sign over it. I found this cool message board at a sale too.

New favorite sitting area


I made me a new sitting area in our office. I just love sitting there in the morning with a cup of coffee and the newspaper by the lamp. (Ooops...I should have straightened my cushion on the chair)



This is the other side of the room. It's amzing how just changing things around makes things feel new and fresh.

New Chair Cushions




I had some chair cushions my mom gave me and I bought a tablecloth Saturday at a garage sale for $2.00. I recovered the cushions with the material from the tablecloth and there you go...new cushions for $2.00. I really like the black and white on the black chairs.
I'm going to get a big white rooster for the table...what do you think?

The Azaleas are blooming...





The azaleas are blooming like crazy! Everything is greening up and it is really coming to life here, I just hope we don't get a frost to ruin it all.

Can't upload images

I'm trying to upload images for a new post today and I cannot get it to work...just keeps acting like it is loading, but never does. Is anyone else having the same issue today?

Refinished Dining Room Furniture...


Before


After



Well I've been wanting to get ladderback dining chairs for the breakfast nook, but decided it just wasn't going to happen. So we just painted what we had. I am going to distress it when it dries well. It's pretty dark, but I think I like it.

101st post


This is a shelf built in to my cabinets...I wish I could hide those stupid wires. I'll have to work on that. (again)


I put this together the other day. I got it all from garage sales. I think all together it cost about $3.00


I finally found something that I like that fits this little wall by my pantry. I took a metal wall hanging and hung some plates I already had.
Don't you love it when you can re-use things you already have and get something new for yourself for nothing?

Well I missed my 100th post...oh well.
