A few setbacks and a thank you.

For the past several days I've been itching to get started on new paint projects. But truth be told I've had a few setbacks this week. Last Sunday night I fell down the stairs at my parents house and hit my tailbone and lower back pretty good. I'm okay, but just now realizing the soreness is not going to go away overnight. And THEN, early Tuesday morning I woke up with the stomach bug and was on the couch for two days - which was pretty miserable. But I am feeling much better and slowly my back is feeling much better. I promise I will have some good posts for you guys to read soon!

In addition to my setbacks, I also just wanted to thank everyone for all the sweet comments, and for just taking a look at my blog and being a follower. Its been a eye opener to think that people actually like what I do and what I have a passion for, and that a large amount of people share my passion. Its been great hearing your comments and thoughts on paint color, furniture detail, etc. So thank you all so much for just looking, commenting, and being a follower! It means so much!

Next Projects

So, my painting has kind of slowed down a little bit - with Christmas approaching I've been super busy out shopping and doing things around the house with decorations and such. So this will be a short post with pics of projects to come.

The chest was a craigslist find around the Asheville area and the old chair (which I love) is a beside-the-road find that I found from my hometown area (gotta love FREE stuff from the road) :)

You'll just have to wait and see how they turn out! Still deciding on a fabric for the seat of the chair...

Bird's egg blue.

So here is my reveal of one of the dressers that has been sitting in my storage building out back. And painting it this bird's egg blue was perfect. (Had it leftover from a room my mother painted) The pulls/knobs are original but just painted. I think I used Krylon spray paint in Ivory. I've been loving their spray paint recently (And I'm not really a fan of spray paint), but I love how its been looking on projects I've been doing lately. Krylon is the spray paint of choice now :)

DIY yarn wreaths

So lately I've been a little slack with posting. I have one dresser almost finished  (I am currently spraying the knobs right now) and an old farmhouse door my mom actually found for me for 8 bucks that I want to turn into a headboard for our guest room. I have tons to do, but its been a little difficult with thanksgiving, Xmas shopping needing to be done AND chasing an almost 18 month old around the house :) So...with that said, I wanted to post something I'm pretty smitten with right now. And with it being December 1st today, this just fits.

Yarn Wreaths. I've made about 4 in the past 2-3 weeks and they are pretty addicting. These things are so much fun and SUPER easy. I think total cost was around 6 bucks. So Simple.

{These I adore as well}
