So I primed & painted these chairs, distressed & sealed the wood, and recovered the seats.
Much, much better now. See?
I got some adorable baby gifts in the mail today! They are for a dear friend who has a new baby boy & an adorable big brother (sorry to spoil the surprise if you're reading this C, but I had to share the cuteness!).
Little Cupcakes Company. She has some of the most original & unique, high quality & fun baby gifts as well as apparel & gifts for adults & homes, too. Even wedding gifts!
C ~ there is more coming for you & your boys, so the surprise isn't totally spoiled :)
So I was at My Favorite Place today in Chamblee and I spotted something that I knew, in an instant, my friend Elizabeth had to have. I took a picture and sent it to her from my Iphone and got a reply almost immediately. "YES YES YES, I want it!!" So, I got it! Elizabeth is an incredible photographer (her company is Libbie Wicket) and she is especially talented with newborns & children. Look what I found...
And, because I haven't posted enough pictures here yet (ha!) here are the other treasures that I brought home today...
AND I finally recovered my dining room chairs.
My mom said "Why would you recover these chairs? There is nothing wrong with them!". Well, she was right, there was nothing wrong with them. Except for the fact that I didn't like them! But they are done now and I am happy.
Thanks for visiting! The blog is up to 263 followers (WOW!) and there will be another giveaway if & when we hit 300, so start sharing your ideas with me about the giveaway!
P.S. The stereo cabinet still isn't finished. If you don't hear from me for a few days, it is because I have been committed. The lingering-unfinished-project-anxiety is almost too much to take.
