I usually have a 3 projects at a time only rule. I seem to have thrown this out the window! The problem now is that I have so many projects floating around that I am having a hard time finishing one and moving onto the other. I seem to just be running around in circles throwing paint and sandpaper and everything else all over the place. So I am trying to change my ways and finish some projects. Luckily my husband sees just how unfocused I am and has started helping me hang the light fixtures. Anyway I have been thrift shopping the whole time and here is an idea of some of the projects I have going on right now.
If you can't tell this is a huge ottoman. Its the Target variety. I went to a yard sale on the way home and this ottoman was on this guys grass. I stopped and it had one little inch rip in it. It didn't look too bad so I asked how much he wanted. $20 so I asked if he would take $15 (I don't usually haggle but I knew I would have to recover this) he said yes and I threw it in the truck). The inch rip turned into this after 4 days!! (once again the little munchkins attacked)
So I am in the process of finding a material to cover it with.
Then I found this:
Its a solid cedar chest and even has an insurance policy pasted on the inside for moth control! It was only $10 without haggling! I have been looking for toy chests so it was perfect. The only problem is it looks like someone went modgepodge crazy with gardening pictures. I plan on stripping this sanding it and then seeing the shape of the wood.
Then I found this:
Its a LANE table for $8.99 Savers. I wanted it for our TV in the loft for the kids. It is currently being sanded and will be stained.
Then I found these:
I am switching out all the lighting in the house and I want it in brushed nickel silver or chrome. The one on the left is a Kitchler for $7.99 and the right is I don't know what but it was $15.
I am also sanding and staining a sofa table, upholstering a low coffee table I found to make it a bench, rearrangeing my seascape wall to fit with the hutch and making some faux canvas art! I'll let you know how it all goes :) Focus Focus Focus!
