Welcome to my crazy life! I love to refinish and re create on a dime. Join me in this adventure creating beautiful in your home. I live in South Western Ontario, am married to the most amazing man (he has to be amazing to put up with all the "junk" I bring home) Together we have 4 GREAT adult kids, one daughter in law ( I couldn't have asked for a better woman for our son) and I'm Oma to the cutest and brightest little boy. Yes I'm biased!
Till the snow melts and the grass turns green I am creating spring in the only way I can.
I'm doing a ton of projects and I'm trying as hard as I can to inject spring into the things I touch.
Like this coffee table.
I do actually have a before picture.
Can you imagine...I had so many people tell me it was to ugly. They just couldn't imagine how I could make it into anything anyone would like.
Course, lucky for me they didn't actually tell me that before I started..lol
So I sanded and fixed and sanded some more. Then painted two tone
And here she is now...in all her spring glory :)
Normally I like doing a light base with a dark top...but I kept picturing this in green on the bottom.
I almost went back to natural for the top...but that little voice in my head was screaming this slightly off white.
I did a bit of distressing and finished it off with a poly seal.
And of course I updated the knobs with these sweet stars.
And now she is all ready for her new home!
The new owners will also be taking home this wonderful double bed. Double beds are making a comeback, did you know that? Seems everyone is getting them for their guest rooms. I think it's a great idea!
What a perfect bed to let your guests rest their heads at night.
A bit of glaze and a bit of age..brings out all the wonderful details.
I'm really hoping the new owners take some pictures and send them to me. I love seeing it all in their new homes. :)
