September 30, 2011 in Building and Repurposing
Wow. This month flew by. Am I the only one that feels like September passed in the blink of an eye? Everywhere I look the stores are selling mums and pumpkins and I’m officially excited. I love this season!
It’s been a pretty eventful month and I thought I’d take a day to recap the projects I tackled… just for fun, we’ll stick with the before and afters and you can click the links if you want the how-to’s. …and for the sake of not making this the longest post EVER, I’ll only include the projects that were actually FINISHED.
Hands down my biggest victory (and undertaking) this month. and I. LUV. IT. The kitchen feels so much brighter!
Gotta love a $10 Craigslist find! Finishing the board and batten was the kick in the butt I needed to finally poly and paint the table.
For only $9 (including the cost of the chairs!) I refinished a pair of chairs for the kitchen…
Some hot glue, simple jute and scrapbooking flowers… you have a wreath!
This one seems pretty self-explanatory.
This was a fun evening project while watching a little TV. Super simple but makes me smile…
What’s to come in October?
Welllllll…. I’m finishing up a brand new (to me) coffee table that I rescued off the side of the road. Yup…. right off the curb! I’ll also be showing the $7.50 pedestal side table completed, wine bottle tiki torches, the finished (for now) living room gallery wall, and my new hanging pendant bedside lights. ….and I’m sure plenty of other fun stuff along the way!
PLUS, if I can bug my sisters enough, I’m sure we can squeeze a project or two out of them! Christy just finished up an UH-MAZING bathroom redo in her home and I know Karen’s waiting on some encyclopedia pages from me so she can get to crack-a-lackin’ on a little somethin-somethin.
Have a great weekend!
