A lot of nothing but a lot of some things!

Hi guys, hope you're enjoying some Spring like temperatures.  The weather here in the Canadian Prairies has been beautiful and hopefully (finger's crossed) the white stuff is gone for good.  On Friday I shoveled what was left off the deck and removed the cover on our Adirondack tete-a-tete in anticipation of enjoying our morning cup of java outdoors over the weekend.  Did that happen...heck no!  Why?

Because of this...

...and this.

We're changing the dark brown-on-brown in this room too.  I've been wanting to tackle this project for over a year and have a beautiful Duncan Phyfe table waiting for a makeover for this room.  I still need to find the perfect chairs to complete the ensemble so the hunt is on.

Normally on Tuesdays I have a furniture makeover to share with you.  Well it's not happening this week because last week I never stepped foot inside the workshop.  I had my head buried in books, and we're not talking novels!  Tax Day is soon arriving and I had been procrastinating for weeks and weeks about getting those numbers crunched.

But I do have this baby currently on the go!  It isn't a headboard anymore and I can't wait to show you what I've transformed it into.

Hopefully next weekend we'll have some time to enjoy that morning cup of java on this...

Awaiting Spring's arrival to relax in these again.

We'll see you on Thursday with a reveal of one of these projects (toe's crossed now too).  So many ideas, so little time!
