Hurry Up Hubby and Finish your Project

My hubby has always been great about jumping on whatever project I decide to do our house and like most designer's there is ALWAYS a project in mind!!

Last spring I had to make a deal with hubby. You see our kitchen remodel was going at a snail's I told hubby the faster we got the kitchen finished the quicker he could get on his project......the custom hot rod that he's been working on for the past several years. That worked!!! He quickly agreed and kitchen got finished in no time!

Well a few months later I said hey I really want to start re-doing our master bedroom. He quickly replied, "NOT UNTIL MY HOT ROD IS DONE". Ok, Ok, so hurry it up hubby!!

Meanwhile I've been buying stuff for the bedroom as I find them. Here is what I have so far.

This is my craigslist's mahogany and I LOVE IT! Only $200..cha ching!!

Got these awesome lamps at TJ Maxx for $40 each and I had the vase in another room.
Antique Mirror got from a garage sale for $10..Woo Hoo!

And this is what I'm waiting for hubby to finish. Hurry Hubs!

The Magic of Paint

Do you remember that wood pedestal bowl thinky I bought at a garage sale last weekend?
Well, here is a reminder of it. I love the lines of it, but didn't care for the wood color. So what's a girl to do?? Bring out the Magic, of course!

And by Magic I mean "Heirloom White" spray paint!


Funny, now that my daughter saw it painted she decided that she wants it for her future new home. I told her that I'll think about it. LOL
Turns out quite a few people have this pedestal thingy...I've seen it throughout blogland.

I also wanted to let you all know that I will not be able to post as often as I did last year. I'm sure you noticed that my blog posts this year have not been as frequent as last year. The reason is our business - Creative Carpet Design is really leaps & bounds! This is what is keeping me busy...and that's a great busy!

Garage Sale Treasures

My 21 yr old daughter and I ventured out friday morning to some garage sales. Our mission was to find decor items for her future home. She will be moving out in 1 yr after she graduates RN nursing school. We figured this yr would be the perfect time for us to go garage saleing to find stuff for cheap for her future new home. I even found a few things for me!

So, come on let me show you what we got!

Daughter bought this ornate gold mirror for $2. She will either paint the frame white or black and distress it for the shabby chic look.

She got this for $1. The stand was white, but she painted it black. I don't know what she will put in it?? Any Ideas??

Oh and here is my beauty! I am either going to use it in my bedroom or in the bathroom when we remodel it. It was $10. It was made in the 1920's.
I got this on saturday for daughter when hubby & I went to some garage sales. It is one of those candle holders that goes into the fireplace. It was $2. I think I'll use it this yr before she moves out. LOL

I put 1 candle on it just to show you what it is for.

I spotted this and new it would look fab painted in Heirloom White and distressed. I love the shape of it! This was $1. I don't know what to put in it though. Any Ideas??

I haven't decided if this is mine or daughters. Maybe mine till she moves. ;)

Found this awesome tall candle holder for daughter. She gave me the tassel off of it because it's my colors. She will either paint this white or black and distress it. Got it for $2

Also found this iron stand.

She can either use it as a plate stand (I painted the plate a few yrs ago at a paint pottery studio)

or a cookbook stand.

I got this awesome tray for moi! Love the texture & color. But not sure what I'm going to do with it yet. This was $2

And last but not least I got these glittery beaded candle holders to use during Christmas since I decorate with Gold I figured they would look amazing on the Christmas dining room table. These were $2 for all 5.

Ok, hubby wants me to show you what he got for $5.

We watch that show called "American Pickers" and they always buy rusty old hubby got it to resale, but now he says he might restore it. We will see!

Did you find any treasures this past weekend?

I am linking up with Rhoda from Southern Hospitality blog for her Thrifty Treasures Linky Party. Be sure to stop by there to see everyone else's treasures!
