It is down to the wire, getting ready for Farm Chicks!!! I've been busy (probably not as busy as I should...) working on some projects.... It is really hard combining all I want to accomplish with the busy life that comes from raising four active children!!! Soccer practices for two of them have resumed, daughter #3 has to dress up like Amelia Earhart this friday for her Afternoon of Achievers - where do I find flying goggles...? - , as part of PAC Hospitality coordinator for our Elementary school I have to be involved with the year-end staff luncheon, all of this while planning our trip to Europe in a little over 3 weeks...!!!! Yikes!!!!
Can you say S-C-A-T-T-E-R-E-D...???
Anyway, before I show you the projects I have been working on, I wanted to show you my little treasure from Cindy's barn sale.... This darling buffet is simply adorable, isn't it? I will probably use glass knobs and this piece is ready to use!!! I haven't decided if I am keeping it or not...
Do you remember this desk I shared a few posts back?
Here is the desk, complete with a paint treatment, a burlap cover and a sweet ruffled trim... I think it turned out pretty sweet, what do you think?
This vintage laundry cart just needed a good soaking (the liner, that is), but I didn't want to stop there, so I gave the silver base a coat of blue paint to match the sweet trim. Love the result!
Even though I don't usually work with red too much, I fell in love with this linen fabric by The French General... I made a long pillow with a pompom trim, and am very happy with the result.
Finally, my sweet husband spent his weekend working on this project... Did I mention I have the sweetest husband ever...?? It is a twin headboard and footboard turned bench, and once it gets a coat of paint and a cushion, I think it will be a knockout!!!
