I am always proud of my projects when they are done, but sometimes they feel daunting when I start. I remind myself that I planted roses this weekend, filled out rest of front garden, weeded and put mulch around the property. I can do it...one step at a time!
HOpe you guys are are all conquering your PILE of projects too!

I should probably NOT be going on Craigslist and typing in things like "buffet" or worse yet, for me, "Horse". I did it last week though, I didn't buy a horse or even tall boots, I found this lovely buffet. I have been desiring a sideboard/buffet for a long time. I got the price I wanted for her and after some planning to go get her (an hour away). She came home.
Then there is that SHIP! Look at the top pic! A lovely ship is on the bottom drawer! Do I make a circle around it and not paint that section. If I do that do I refinish the top to match?
Also she had been in storage for awhile so I had to scrub her pretty good and I am gonna do the insides with a dilute bleach solution again to get the "storage" smell out of her. By the time she is painted and refinished she is going to be JUST what I wanted. Now, can I buy TIME on CL?
Tell me what you think!
By the way, MARY some of the goodies you gifted me when I first moved are in the cabinet to the left see if you an find them! Proof that the picture wasn't staged is the dust on said items! LOL
