Back from vacation

Well it sure is good to be home!  My husband and I took our kids to No. Myrtle Beach, SC this past week.  What a welcome and overdue vacation!  Wanted to share a few pics from our vacation and I'm definitely ready to get back in the saddle to revamp some pieces to show you.  I have one I will post tomorrow of a dresser I had done but did not get a chance to photograph it yet.  If you remember from a previous post - here.  Of course I had to throw in a single photo of my adorable grandson Carter Timothy (son of my eldest daughter Megan).  Enjoy!

Update: China Cabinet & Buffet

I am sooo excited I cannot contain myself.  I talked about a beautiful china cabinet and buffet I saw on Craigslist the other day; you'll see pictures on my previous post.  Well I am so happy to tell, we are picking it up tomorrow morning! 

The thing is, these are such beautiful pieces of furniture, would you paint them?  I want to lighten them up for my dining room, but I hate to put paint on them they are so beautiful on their own; seems sacrilegious to paint them.  Would you paint them?  I appreciate anyone's input on this one.

A china cabinet and buffet

I nearly fell off my chair this afternoon when I saw this posting on Craigslist.  What is killing me is my husband has made me swear off buying any more furniture until I sell off what I have already.  As you know I have been a professed Craigslist stalker.  Every day I think I am on there scouring for new things to paint.  But this one is too good to pass up.  Aren't they beautiful - and only $120.00!

Little Brown House - Headboard to Coat Rack

I had to share this post today.  I just love the transformation and am such a big fan of repurposing.  Sharyl at Little Brown House transformed this headboard into a gorgeous coat rack.  Head on over to Sharyl's blog and check it out.
