Are you tired of the projects yet?

I hope not because I have been one motivated and busy chickie. Today it was painting, and then more painting, then some sanding and then more painting. Do you remember this buffet I got awhile back?


It had a decent finish, but quite a few scratches and I knew it would look cuter (more cute?) with a little paint and some sparkley glass knobs. Here's what it looks like now.


I also worked on a vintage coffee table, a lap desk, a tall skinny display cabinet and some other miscellaneous items today, but they are not quite picture worthy just yet.


Yesterday I went to Joy's to work on some projects for Farm Chicks. Here's a little something I made.I just love it. So simple and sweet. A little pendant made from an antique money clip and a little piece of a vintage bracelet. Joy gave me a silver chain to go with it. Now, tough decision, keep or sell? You'll have to come to Farm Chicks to see the other stuff we made. Way cool, trust me.


My good buddy and finder of cool stuff, Mitzi dropped by today with a couple cute crinolines she found at a sale for me. My friends Kate and Suzanne stopped by too to give me a little May Day bouquet of lilacs. I've said it before and I'll say it again, I have the best friends.


Happy weekend everyone!

That buffet looks a TON better - amazing what a litle paint and elbow grease will do. Your little money clip necklace is adorable too. You have been a busy gal!

That dresser turned out gorgeous! I don't know how you would be able to part with either the dresser or the pendant. Both are spectacular!

What is it about paint, it really makes a difference in furniture, especially if its white. The dresser turn out great. I'm enjoying your blog, so I decided to add you to my list if you don't mind.

I'll be back another time...Have a great Sunday Afternoon.
