My husband had to have his knee scoped this morning.  All went well, thank you for asking!  Blessing #1!  I've taken the day off to keep him down once the pain meds kick in!  HA!  Anyway, it's given me a chance to get some of those odd jobs done around the house.  I switched purses a few weeks ago and hadn't had time to completely clean out the old one.  I dumped all those odds and ends out and guess what I found!!  $100 worth of gift cards that I'd gotten for my birthday that I'd forgotten about!  Blessing #2!

Enough about that!  You're really here to see some cool renovations and creations!  Well what about these.  I found this awesome 9 drawer dresser on Craig's List.  A coat of French gray and some glaze really brought it to life.  I'm kinda crazy about all things French!

This English cabinet just needed a fresher look.  I gave it a couple of coats of white paint and it's the perfect home for some vintage ironstone!  I love the scalloped top!

Isn't this credenza crazy?  I knew I wanted to paint it black when I found it.  It sure shows off the copper hardware!

I'm so grateful to have the vision and opportunity to create and sell cool pieces like these.  Blessing #3!
