Multi-Purpose Nightstand

Saturday, 17 November 2012

I've been on a self-imposed slow down over the past month or so. It feels as though my mind is fried at the end of the day, and that I have nothing left to give to furniture redo's. It makes me sad at times, but I think it's just life...kids, responsibilities, dogs, volunteering, etc.

But when I find a pieces like this, my heart still skips a beat. I picked this up for $5.00 from a woman who does what I do, but who needed room to park in her a garage for the winter. You'd never know it, but it came with a front leg that had been broken off.

But my father-in-law literally built a new leg....aside from the color of the wood, you'd never know! Love him!

How's this for a redo?

But it gets better!!

This little beauty doubles as a desk or vanity! Perfect for a small apartment where dual purpose furniture is a necessity!

Hope you enjoyed this one! I've certainly missed blogging lately!

Family Photos and a Captains Chair

Thursday, 8 November 2012

Early in October, we had professional family pictures taken. It had been over a year since the last time we had them done, and I generally don't love getting my picture taken. But it was time.

Enter Danielle at Danielle Schenk Photography. She has become a good friend of mine through our boot camp class...and her work is amazing. She makes a photo shoot SO easy and relaxed. She let my boys be little boys...and captured them so well! And she even made me look good!

I picked up this chair at an estate sale in September, and as a small "thank you" to Danielle, I wanted to paint this chair as a photography prop for her. I always love how painted, vintage chairs can look in professional shots.

I sprayed it with Krylon Ocean Breeze, dry brushed with a white wash and distressed it.

I cannot wait to see it in pictures by Danielle! If you are local and are looking for a great photographer, check out Danielle Schenk Photography!
