I think I need an intervention…

For my thrifting addiction. I can’t seem to stop myself. This hobby of mine is getting out of control. I see beautiful old pieces of furniture with great lines, and solid construction and I. MUST. HAVE. IT!! I know I don’t have a place in my house to put most of it, but I want to take it home with me anyway. I’m convinced I can strip off the ugly, and give each piece new life. If it won’t fit in my house, I’m sure I can find someone who will love it. And so, because of this, my garage is filled with projects waiting patiently for my attention.

I am a list lover. I love getting to mark off the projects as I get them done. So, I figured that I would make  a list of things that are waiting to be re-finished.  However, because it seems that there are many to-do lists crumbled up in my purse, I will post this one here.

1. Repaint and re-cover my son’s chair.

For the Boy Child's room

2. Strip the paint from these cabinets and repaint them. Aren’t they beautiful? I love them.

There are two of these. So, twice the amount of stripping fun to be had!

3. Sand and re-paint this little cabinet. On a side note, I don’t have any place to put this in my house.

I just liked the detail in the doors.

4. Find lamp shades for all these. Or sell them. My lamp addiction is getting ridiculous!

There aren't enough rooms in my house for all these!!

5. Get this closet in my office cleaned out and put in shelves.

Don't judge my mess!

6. Sand and paint this little beauty.

I just can't decide on the color - any suggestions?

Did you notice that there are more lamps on there? Yeah, I have enough lamps to light the neighborhood.

Okay, that’s all I can handle for the next few weeks. I also have a few more projects to finish that are half started, like this chair. This is the before pic.

It's painted, but the cushion needs to be re-covered.

Wish me luck!

Thanks for stopping by 🙂

      Thank you! I am beginning to run out of space in the house, but I love having something to keep me busy. I have to purchase my ticket to the conference tomorrow, and make hotel reservations… I know there is so much to do, but I can’t wait to get there!
      Found your blog yesterday, and I love it. When the kids go back to school, I’ll be able to read more of it. By the way, that chocolate dessert looked delicious!

    Since you love pinterest so much and have a lot of sanding and painting to do; consider this:
