July, Window and Dresser Before

I couldn't believe my insane luck when I saw this window. It even has an undercoat of a robin's egg blue that I love! However, it's pretty dirty and I think I will have to start fresh. We'll see what happens. This little baby is not for sale, she's all mine =)

Below will be my first official item for sale! These dressers are what inspired me to finally delve into refinishing furniture as my hobby. I've done a few projects before but have never tried to sell anything. I've decided this piece shall be white and lightly antiqued.
I apologize that I began working before I found our camera, but you get the idea.

These are two over-sized nightstands OR two dressers OR they actually stack forming a very large dresser/chest of drawers. They are in nearly perfect condition, just some light sanding needed, other bumps will be kept to keep with the antique theme. Can't have something that doesn't look a little loved.

Stay posted to see what becomes of these!

Welcome Welcome!

Ahhh... my very first post of what I hope will be a lasting outlet for this busy momma.
First an intro to me:
My name is Kate and really there isn't much more to me than that. I consider myself pretty low-key and relaxed. Right now life is all about my family. My husband is wonderful and so patient with me as I repeatedly take over 'his' garage. If our car is parked in the driveway, there's a project in our garage =) We have two children, "M" (almost 4 yrs.) and "A" (1 yr.). My kids keep me pretty busy as I am blessed to be an at-home-mom. But I realized that I need a hobby! Finally, it dawned on me that I should refinish and sell furniture as it's something I am obsessed with anyway. Plus, who couldn't use a little extra cash each month? This blog is dedicated to my personal projects and projects I'm selling. Hopefully it's a place for someone else to find a little inspiration. My first real post should be up tomorrow!Marek and Jo.
