More projects.....

Ok, Have you ever heard the saying "finish one project before you start the next."
Well, it is a good idea, but I have a really hard time accomplishing it... :) I did finish the dresser redo (and I do have pics and will post as soon as I can get my sister to email me her before pic from her camera) and have started primering the bathroom closet doors and vanity... BUT I found today on CL an awesome 4 poster pineapple twin bed for $30 and a HUGE Heavy mirror for $25... I am going to prime and paint the bed and mirror... My son wants the bed to be Blue, but I am not sure yet...I will see, I'll prime it and then see if maybe an antiqued blue bed might work... The mirror I want to antique the frame and have some awesome vinyl I want to put on it, for our front entry.. sooooo hopefully soon I'll be back with some before and after pics!! :)

Projects, Company and progress

Well, I have been gone awhile but don't worry we have been busy!! :) Not a ton done on the house BUT we had our first official company at our home for 12 days, it was Grandma and Grandpa from North Carolina!!! WE had a great time!!! and took a couple days to recover...
We tried to get our downstairs bathroom done in time, but alas it just didn't get finished so that is now our fall project, along with taking all the garden in, fertilizing our 2 acre yard, cleaning up the yard for snow, and selling some more things on craigslist...(oh and I am sure a couple more in my secret project of painting our kitchen cabinets!!) Yep, I am going to try and paint our ugly mismatached kitchen cabinets without my hubby's knowledge....We will see how it goes....(I already got the TSP, primer and sanding paper...)
Oh and I got a dresser off Craigslist for $10 that I am ALMOST finished, as in I should be done tomorrow!! I will post some pics for you all :) I think it turned out great and I got it done for $5 (the spray polyurethane can) and $5 for the drawer knobs so plus the $10 dresser it ended up being $20....
