Blue Bench…Two-Toned Painting

Sometimes, I have a tendency of starting more than a few projects at one time.   This past week was one of ‘THOSE’ weeks that I did just that.  And it always seems of a challenge I take on each week, being a mother of three, painting in between nap times or whenever Hubby is around to […]

New Items Up For Sale, HUGE Workbench/Island and HUGE Chalkboard!! ~SOLD~

Hello Everyone!  Happy Thursday!  Almost the end of the week finally.  I thought I would write a quick post on what I have been finishing up this week. I got this HUGE workbench from my in-laws that were actually going to get rid of it!  I said NOOOOO  I’ll take it!  So glad I did.  […]

Refinished Incubator With An Oil Finish

A few months back, I picked up this old worn out Incubator.  It had some serious potential!!  Other than the legs being chewed up a little, it was in great shape.  My idea??  What a great coffee table, right!?

Antique Country Style Buffet
