I have 'busy brain,' and I have to say, it's making me a little cuckoo. I have so many crafty, decoratingy ideas spinning around in my head that I just can't get to them all. We've lived in this house for two years now, and I still have yet to decide on and put up window treatments! Did I mention it's making me a little cuckoo? I really need to get on that. That and painting the dining room. Oh and slipcovering that ottoman. And... well, you get the idea. Hopefully, this blog will help me focus in on a few to complete and then share with you. In the mean time, I thought I'd share a few of the projects I actually have completed. Over the past year or so, I've come to love the idea of 'up cycling' old furniture. I get excited at the thought of transforming some sad thrift store piece into something new and stylish. Last year, I got the itch to transform some old dining chairs that my husband and I bought for our first apartment back in the mid-nineties (yes, that was a long time ago!) The chairs were dated, dirty and covered in paint splatters because I used them as my painting 'ladder' for years -- and I painted every room in my old house at least twice!
