Happy Friday! I don’t know what is up with me, but it’s like I have been missing my “mojo”lately – perhaps it’s the allergies or perhaps it’s burnout… I’m sure you have noticed I haven’t posted as much on here as I would like. Maybe it’s because I have been doing this for a while and perhaps I just need a break from blogging??? No idea….
Or maybe time hasn’t been enough lately. I mean….
Can I get an amen!?!
Then there’s my Youtube channel.
It has been growing at a much faster rate than I would have expected, and I can say that I have been enjoying the benefits of a loving community over there. Weird. I never thought of myself as a YouTuber, but frankly the complexity of filming and editing is actually something I have been enjoying… (nerd alert!).
And sometimes I get so involved in a project that I honestly forget to take images as I am filming.
I keep telling my husband I need a camera crew, but I don’t think he’s been listening. 🙄
Even still I don’t want to miss sharing my projects with my community here so I am sharing my latest furniture transformation that I happened to film… plus sometimes I think it’s nice to just sit back and enjoy a quick video instead of having to thumb up and down a post and actually read.
Perhaps, I’m just lazy like that! 😆
So I will be inserting my video tutorials by themselves here and there to see how they work out. However, if you would rather enjoy images and print, do speak out!
Okay, my breakfast area was in dire need of a table that I could use for a coffee station. I had been looking a while for something cheap on FB Marketplace and I came across an IKEA table for $20. I was on it like white on rice cause you know I love a good score!
My hubby and I picked it up STAT!
She was not pretty by any means though, but I knew I could fix her up!
With the help of some leftover 1 x 4’s…
and some paint…. I was able to turn her into this!
She’s a vision!
I love the blue color (that my husband actually picked out) and the pop color it gives this wall. And the wood along with the distressing makes it look like it’s been in a farmhouse kitchen for a long time.
