Furniture Friday #2

Wow what a crazy week.  First off, he back!!  Yes, that would be my husband who has been working out of state for 5 months.  With that comes some readjusting.  It also feels like moving and reorganizing all over again.  The good news is I managed to sneak in a few projects this week and not for the store.  Yup, for my house!!  Oh my goodness, you guys are going to finally get to see my house.  So here is this weeks Furniture Friday.

A hutch that I did a quick repaint on, 

The hubby wanted a bar in a home office/ dining room and I had this in my garage forever.  Worked out perfectly.
and it's the perfect place to hide my printer.

This dresser was across the street with a free sign on it. Now granted it was a little beat up for resale (missing moldings, notches in the wood, etc.), but was perfect for a little sideboard in our house.

I've been in a very teal mood lately, so teal it was.  With the help of some butterfly hardware I got on clearance and some leftover paint from my Moroccan Screen, this project came in at $6.00.
This little side chair was a bargain at $3.00

With some leftover paint from the hutch it has been transformed.

and since I'm in such a leftover mood, I'll share with you this chair that is sitting in my hallway also made of leftovers.

Looks very similar to this bench that is in our shop.

Oh and one last thing.  I am loving the play kitchens out there, but since my boy/girl twins share a room, I'm really not finding room for a big fancy one.  My compromise, I found a small area in their closet where they can have fun and play kitchen. A little extra shelf and viola!!  insta-play-kitchen.

So there you have it for Furniture Friday.  BTW...I'm looking for guest bloggers.  If you are interested please email me at



As you can see we're partying all week long. I probably need to go to link party rehab.  Oh well,  grab a martini and join us....Monica
