Quietly Working

It has been over a year since my last post and almost a year and a half since my Praying for Trials post. This last year and a half has been full of some of the most difficult trials I have ever been through. I have been tried and tested beyond what I ever imagined I could handle. I have learned some very difficult lessons. Ones that I could not have been learned any other way. I don’t know if anyone will ever get the entire story but I hope to one day be able to tell my story of everything that has happened in this last year and a half. Until then, know that I am quietly working on myself and crafting just a tiny bit here and there. Here are some of the projects I have worked on in the last year and a half!

I have been trying to incorperate more white in my house to lighten things up. I started with my kitchen table. Instead of a glazed cream that matched my cabinets I wanted the legs to be white. So I sold my first barn house table and started a second! I will do another tutorial because this time I didn’t use the enormous sea clamps which made the project much easier.

I also had these two old doors laying around I cleaned them up stained the wood and they are currently being used as somewhat of a headboard. However I have other future plans for these!

Now this was one of my favorite projects. I wish I had a better picture but this will have to do for now until the tutorial. My mom found this mirror at a garage sale for $50. The fireplace I found at a garage sale for $5 dollars!!! It was a bit of a piece but with some tender love and care I gave it a new look. I had my first tuffting experience with the center cushion and loved every second of it! More on that to come also!

Here is another of my favorite transformations. I found 2 of these chairs at D.I for $45 dollars a piece. This project was tedious and time consuming but well worth it in the end!

          Before                     After

My final and largest project was helping my friend Shelbie complete her kitchen. I love the vision we came up with and the sleek look! Amazing before and after!


 I hope to be continuing on with the blog at a slower but steady pace. I have to learn to balance. Being a Mommy Blogger can be incredibly time consuming. I can get obsessive over it at times but what I want to remember most as I start to pick up the blogging pieces is that my family comes first. My motto for right now is, No one on their death bed ever said I wish I had blogged more! My kids and my husband deserve me. I want to give them that but I also what to be able to create a balance between them and continuing to live my dreams.

    Balance is the trickiest word to live by! But always worth striving for. Cool chair find!
