This is one post that will emerge from the drafts...

Hi. I have started writing at least 5 posts, never to finish a single one. This is not entirely my fault...We have been doing some office renovations at work and I haven't had time to do anything else. Sometimes I eat at my desk and blog, it just seems to work better than trying to write at night. What I really need to do is purchase a used laptop or an inexpensive one, and sneak off to Starbucks on my lunch. I go crazy if I am here and don't leave all day. Josh has a laptop and we set up my own user account, but it just isn't the same. I need a place to organize all of my craft & design porn! I really enjoy writing and finding things to talk about isn't a hard thing for me to do, that is for sure.

So, a few months ago, I came across this lovely blog Little Green Notebook, which is the blog of Pearl Street Interiors. The woman behind both is the incredible Jenny. She has great style and has a great sense of hmor, too. She is expecting her 3rd baby girl and judging by her last post, she has most likely had the baby by now. Anyway, she is AMAZING at refinishing furniture and looking at creative ways to breathe some life and style into existing furniture. Here is a taste of some of her work:

{I know, right?!?}

Love it! I recently acquired some chairs and 5 file cabinets that are begging to be refurbished. They were going to be thrown away by my office and so I was able to get them for free. Lucky for me, my husband is all about refinishing furniture, so we will keep you posted on what happens to them. Soon, he will have Sundays off of work, so we will actually have a day off together!! This is the first time that we will both be off on the same day since, well, ever. The only time we both have a day off is if one of us is taking a vacation day. Sooooo excited! We have a bunch of projects that we can't wait to work on, namely the sanding, painting and reinstalling of our baseboards that we took out in order to put in our new bamboo floors.

Well, that does it for me...I will see you again soon.

  1. YAAAAAY! I am so excited that Josh gets Sundays off. That must make you so happy. Let the projects begin (and hopefully end)! :)
