So I have obviously not been keeping up with my Crafty Thursday posts. I can't even keep up with my blog reading like I would like, much less do any blogging of my own. BUT, this week I am on a mission! I have 2 projects I have been wanting to complete since moving into our house. One is this piece of furniture:

As you can see I started experimenting with it, only to be seriously let down at my color choice. So I'm going to give it a go again, and go with a completely different color and see how it turns out! What do you think??

Also, these guys will hopefully be turned into something great this week as well! Pending that my children take wonderful naps at the same time. I'll keep you posted of the final results!

Lastly, check out this piece of furniture I picked up from an estate sale this weekend. I L.O.V.E. it! It was intended for Naomi's room as a book shelf, but now I'm not sure it will fit. So it may end up in the play room as more storage.

So here's to a wonderful home improvement week for me! I'm going to go get to work...


  1. I love the desk! Is it the orange you don't like? The black is really striking. I love old pieces of furniture too, they have real character! And your pictures are so clear! Do you have a professional camera?


  2. Can't wait to see the end results on all of it!!!

  3. Love that hutch!!! And the green color. I love green!!

  4. Christa, yes the orange was a fail! And yes, I have a Canon Rebel. I love it!
    Working on painting today!! 2 coats down, 2 more to go!
