Can you believe it? Because I sure can't. I think I'm in denial. Anyway...before I get back to packing, I just wanted to say our house is up for rent if you know anyone in Colorado or who is moving to Colorado...send them my way!! More information can be found at my "house blog"...

new things...

I finished 5 pieces of furniture this past week- holla! Some, I have pictures for...some I don't. Here are the ones I have pictures for:

The corner cabinet.
I love this & found a similar one recently in a pottery barn magazine for $399. However, mine is much cuter & has more curves to it. I painted it a creamy white & distressed it a little to show off all of it's fun features.



The vintage desk:
This baby was a beast. And to make it even beastier it had a matching dresser that I also finished. Since it was SO old, I had to sand the heck out of it, wash it off and then I tried painting it- which turned out to be a mistake. I painted it in a creamy white & guess what...all of this funky red stuff started showing through. I hate when that happens!!! ARGG! Time is money...nawmsayn? So, I then put on like 10 coats of primer. And guess what color it is now painted...primer white. Yep, that is correct- I painted it in primer & it turned out great. I distressed it also & spray painted the handles in oil rubbed bronze. I love it now but I am secretly happy to see it go...


The Cute little end-table.
Some times I don't like saying what I paid for stuff...but since this baby was only $2 at Unique thrift store- I feel like it's ok. What a deal!! I painted this in a creamy white, distressed it & put a cute little knob on it.

Before: (it says $3.99, but it was 1/2 off day)

There will be more pictures to come of my other 2 pieces. Yay!
