My new herb garden!

Tuesday, August 16, 2011

Sorry I haven't posted much in the last week, I have been working hard...

We went to a ton of yard sales 2 weeks ago and really scored!  I have been working my tail off to get projects complete to show you,  but somehow I have multiple unfinished projects.  I don't really understand how that happened??

Here is a sneak peak at what I am going to be showing you very soon...

Remember the top to this dresser?  I really, really want to show it to you right now because I am super impatient!!  Hopefully it will be complete tomorrow.

We also picked up these horribly ugly chairs and I completely re-did them and I am not happy with the outcome :-(  Therefore this is the state in my garage at the moment. (Also notice the dresser and hutch in the background staring at me, impatiently waiting their turn).

I was so excited that I finished this big project over the weekend and now it is a total flop.  Hopefully something even more beautiful will emerge, right?

I will be lucky if I get this all done by Christmas!

For now I do have one small project that is complete though. 

I found this adorable crate for $8 bucks at a yard sale and fell in love!  I wasn't sure what I would do with it.  I was trying to think of places to hang it, when my brilliant husband suggested that I put it on our new dresser in the living room and put plants in it (I am starting to think that he should be the one writing the blog).  Immediately when he suggested plants, I thought HERBS!!  I {LOVE} this crate and I can't wait until I have more to show than dirt ;-)

I promise I will get in gear and finish my other projects soon.

I smiled when I saw the fabric on the yellow chair. I bought the same fabric earlier in the year and made curtains for my front room. Love them!

Yes I absolutely love that fabric! You should take a look at my newest post about those disasterous chairs because I was determined to use that fabric :-)
