Happy Monday night! It could be worse, it could be Monday morning again. Sometimes I think Mondays physically hurt my spirit. Ahhh well, we are a little closer to the weekend right now, huh?
I thought I would share some pieces that I finished recently. On Labor Day while many of you were bbqing, I was trying to get some pieces painted during naptime. And I got quite a few finished. Some you have already seen. The above chair (the Bess) said bye-bye on Saturday (we delivered it to the booth on Friday). I don't have a before of this chair that I can find, but it wasn't pretty. I often think about many years (or weeks) down the road when someone finds one of these pieces and is like "Dear Barbara, why in the world would anyone paint a chair that color of blue."
Here is a chest that also sold this weekend.... I really liked it...
The Savannah... love the name, adore the place
And here is a piece that in no way, shape, or form was going to fit in my house. Believe me... I tried!!
why oh why would I want a rusty old wheely thing with no shelves and broken glass in my house?
Well, because Dr. Livingstone looks pretty good cleaned up!
We had some marble from a piece that we bought... it was broken in half, so we took it to our granite guy and had him cut it down so it would fit this vintage dental cabinet.
I seriously lugged this piece inside up 4 steps from the garage and tried it in the powder room (while Mr. Hughes was away, of course... he doesn't approve of me lifting heavy stuff and I don't have the patience to wait!)
Now, me and baby hughes could use the bathroom just fine... anyone taller than me though.... well, it would have been a squeeze, so off to the booth it went.
Well, what do we have here? Well, this is my secretary, Kate (and my terribly messy garage.)
No, silly geese... this is the before...
What the heck did they do to her? Why oh why?
See all those cubbies... well, I have something special planned for them.... very *just for me* kind of special. She is in the works girls and I hope to have her in the house by this weekend.
Pray for cooperative monsters and husbands! (no, don't really pray for that!!)
Okay, now, if you haven't, please enter my giveaway!
Bye for now!
