I went to the thrift store the other day after dropping off a few things. I had some items to donate that have been in our closet for who knows how long. I thought that if I haven’t touched them in over a year then I don’t really need them. So, I packed up the car and dropped off the items. It was nice to have the extra room in the closet. I was just happy to be at the thrift store so I decided to go in and check things out. I didn’t really find anything except this picture. Oh My…. it totally isn’t my taste at all, but I loved the frame. I thought if I took out the picture and the glass then I would have a prim perfect frame to use. I still need to sand it a little bit, but I think it will be perfect when I am done with it. What do you think?
I love the wood and once I get it sanded a little bit then it will look even better. That was all that I found there, but at least I found something.
Now it is time to share a few things with you. Do you remember that little box I was going to hide my phone in. Well, it was a little bit too bright for me. This is what it looked like before.
I thought that I would apply some stain to it and darken it a little bit. I was planning on putting it on my kitchen countertops and I knew that it didn’t match my cabinets at all. So, once I applied the stain…. it looked alot better. Here is a picture of it now.
Great place to hide all of those hideous looking cords. Wouldn’t you agree? Now I just need to work on covering up those outlets. Oh…those stark white outlets are driving me crazy!!
Do you remember me mentioning to you in a previous post about Mom giving me some items that were in her basement? Well, I was able to get the other cabinet home the other night and thought I would share a picture with you today. So, are you all ready to see it? I absolutely love love love this cabinet. It looks a little yellow in the picture, but I think it is from the lighting in my home. It is actually a buttermilk color. Well, here is the picture of it.
Ok, well that is just part of it. Here is the rest ☺
Don’t you love it? Yep, I am in love with it. I would really like to have it out in my family room, but to be honest….. I have no more stinking room for it. I also thought about my kitchen and using it as a small pantry, but then I thought that would just be wasteful to not fill it up with prim goodies and have them on display – right? So, I am thinking that once I get our bedroom re-finished that I will have it in there, but I am still not sure. So, it will just stay in the spare room for right now until I figure it out. Do you ♥ it or what?
So, I am thinking about re-finishing my bedroom. I really want to move our bedroom back downstairs, but I hate to be on a different floor from Cameron? Our home does actually have a first floor master, but when Cameron was born, we moved our room upstairs into the spare room and now the spare room is the master. Does that make sense? Anyway, I am wanting to re-finish my master bedroom and move back downstairs. Do you all think that would be ok? I want to paint my room, put up some bead board and make some wood shutters. I really want to make it prim plus I would love to have all of the toys on one floor and that room being upstairs. I am just not sure about the room move. I guess when I have conflicting thoughts then I just don’t do it. Should I wait til he is a little older? Should I re-paint the room upstairs or what do you all think I should do?
Well, I better run for now. I have a little boy that is driving me absolutely crazy today. I guess you could say that the Horrendous 3’s have arrived and they are awful to say the least.
Until Next Time ~ Blessings, Lisa
