Crazy- Lots of Projects

When I was in the corporate world, long ago, I remember the crazy that occurred just before an event, a vacation or time away.
Fast forward 14 years and the crazy still happens!
Spring Break starts Friday, the Good Day Columbus appearance is this week, we sold many pieces of furniture this past weekend and soccer season has started. Whew!
I thrive on the crazy just before I collapse. At least I'll collapse in warmth!
My first priority is the shoppe. I filled it, rearranged it and brought in lots of Spring.

I restocked Maison Blanche Paint & Products.
Finished an awesome coffee table in Franciscan Gray, love!

Played with the new Maison Blanche Outdoor Paint.
And am now off to Good Day Columbus, to share a DIY project & some Pinterest Party creations with my girls! Tune in to Fox28-now!

Like I said, I love the crazy & am thankful that I get to do what I love!


Our TV Appearance

Whew! We made it through!
It was so fun, I loved having my kids on Good Day Columbus with me yesterday!
They had a blast.
Now, if you've followed along on my adventures, then you know, I have 2 girls.
So who's the young man?
This gentleman is part of our family. He was a neighbor who spent lots of time with our family. He grew up with us and celebrates holidays, events and vacations with us. So it was only appropriate that he join us on tv!
And, he got his craft on!
They rocked the Pinterest Party crafts.

They got to see how a tv show is done.  They met the stars of the show.
They got to taste the new peeps (behind the scenes).
Hopefully, they see that DIY, crafting and following your passion can be fun and rewarding!
If not, they have pictures with Taylor Swift to remind them of a fun morning!

I'm back to the shoppe today! Please pop in and visit. There is such fabulous new treasures!

We are open 11:00-6:00 tonight!

Restocking & Restyling

Wow! Thank you All for supporting our business!
So many furniture pieces found new homes this weekend, you guys are keeping me busy!
I spent lots of time with a paint brush in hand and restyling new goodies for the shoppe.
Here's a little look:

We have restocked, rearranged & restyled. Getting it ready for Wednesday!

I will be painting & restyling today as well. I'm preparing for Good Day Columbus on Wednesday morning, 9:00 am on Fox28.
I'll be bringing some special guests too!

Have a great Monday!

Awaiting a Restyle

I've been keeping busy with my projects. However, I never seem to get ahead!  There is always more to paint, items to find and things to craft.

This week we moved two pieces in the shoppe that I plan to restyle. They are in as found condition.  I'm offering them for sale as is or custom painted. This buys me a bit of time to catch up.
This antique radio cabinet has so much character. 

Wouldn't this be a beautiful bar?
I know she will be gorgeous painted, but she's a beauty in this condition as well.

The second piece is a vintage kitchen cabinet.

She's been scraped/sanded down and is just awaiting a restyle. 

Both pieces are in the shoppe.
Open 11:00-8:00 today!

Buttery Yellow Bench

Hi Friends,
I hope you enjoyed the wonderful day yesterday!  I enjoyed a Pinterest Party at the shoppe & restyled the store as well.
The sun was shining and I had the doors open-perfect!
It's also a great feeling to have the shoppe ready for Wednesday! Today, I can catch up on the rest of life.
One of the new treasures that landed in the shoppe is a bench/coffee table.
It started like this...
I grabbed this at a show and planned to use it as a coffee table. Daughter #2 was breaking it in with her feet.
She looks so much better in a buttery yellow. I used Maison Blanche in Jolie Blonde. This is my first piece of furniture in this color and I love it! A slight distressing and clear wax complete the restyle.

She has landed in the shoppe. She didn't work with the sectional. That's ok, it gives me an excuse to go on "the hunt".

Enjoy the day!
