Modern Furniture Fab Fine

I can't believe it has been over a month since my last post!! How does that happen? It goes by so fast and it seems like I am collecting more things than I am finishing, lol, but I am having fun doing so.
Which brings me to this little find.

Just washed off the deck so we can paint or stain it. Looks so nice wet but not so much when it dries out.

It is modern style and usually I am not drawn to that style but I thought this was way cool.  

The question..... What should I do with it? 
Should I paint it and then leave it with the same legs and handles? 
Or put new handles and legs on or just handles or just legs????

What would you do?
Let me know in the comments.

Wonderful 4th of July Findings

Happy 4th of July!!

I've been busy these last couple of weeks!
We went to Colorado to visit my daughter, it was so good to see her again. How I miss her!

While visiting her, we stopped in at a couple of thrift stores and 
can I just say I wish we had thrift stores here like they do in Colorado.
To bad we only had our car, I could have loaded up a truck or two, lol.

While in Colorado (pics coming), I was bidding on the fab mirror back home and won, love 
the internet.

Here are the pics from the auction.

Here is a close up of the goodness on the mirror!

Repurposed Sewing Cabinet to Phone Stand

I have finally finished the sewing cabinet/phone stand!! It has taken me so long to do this. You see, I do not have an area to paint it and it has been windy EVERY day for the last several months, (ok, at least two months non stop). Here it is before.

Repainted Stool

So I am finally working on projects again but at a more manageable level, lol. At least that is what I am telling myself. Yesterday I showed you the stool I bought years ago. Intentions were to paint it then, but didn't. Here is the stool.

So a few weeks ago I ordered Miss Mustard Seeds Stool cover from Decor Steals. I bought the grey one and love it. This motivated me into painting this stool. Nothing fancy but suits my style!
Lots of pics ahead, just warning ya!

Mission Impossible

I have been working on emptying two storage sheds full of awesome  stuff. I made a promise to my husband and to myself that I would have both empty by Christmas, if not sooner. Talk about mission impossible!! You know how you get to something and you say to yourself you can't possibly get rid of this certain thing because "yada yada yada?? Yeah, that's me, lol!

It has been over two months since I have posted. Where does the time go???I spent about 6 weeks sick...what's up with that?? I usually bounce back fairly quickly but not this last time. BUT.. what a weight loss program! Lost about 10 lbs. but I'm gaining it back darnit!! :0(

Look what I have been up to!

Storage shed #1. Yes, I am renting two, TWO storage sheds. This pic is bad. Took it with my phone and in the sun but you get the idea. So sad, so many projects. I can't sell this stuff online because shipping can be so expensive. I made a promise to myself to have both storage sheds cleaned out by the end of the year. 

I found a great site that is local and on facebook and does an online auction. As you can see by the pic, I made a dent... YAY. A little dent but a dent. This is the biggest shed and I have a lot of stuff to sell, lol. I decided to stop doing projects and just sell what I can and take the rest to Goodwill. Until I get this cleaned up I will not be working on projects. This just got me so down that I couldn't even think of doing anything about the mess. BUT I started this online auction and I am $150 richer and putting a dent in the chaos. I am actually have fun and may sell my husband at the end of it....Any takers, lol.
No, I'm not drinking a case of Black Velvet, lol, but I may at the end, hahaha.

 And this is my truck with a load. Everything has sold except a doll house and a couple of boxes of crap. This is my 1st load and have made two more since then. I think I am going to make my goal.
Have a great week!!

Belts into Bracelets

Welcome back friends, guess what I have been up too? Repurposing belts into bracelets, that's what. And....I'm loving it! So fun. They are quite simple but I think they are great. 
Lets begin, shall we....

This is the second one I made, for my daughter.

Repurposed Belts

When my farther in law passed away a few years ago, my husband brought back quite a bit of things to go through. One of them were belts. I immediately thought of making bracelets out of them. Well... that was a few years ago, and of course I didn't want to hurry into anything, lol. So this is what I have been up to. Repurposing leather belts into bracelets.

I love how beaten up this bracelet looks. I added the white lace but it was such a stark contrast to the leather that I decided to tea stain the lace. It took a couple of times to get the look I was after but I like how it fits in now.
