Sneak Peek!!! A(nother) Work In Progress..

Today I am excited about a few things.  One I will share with you all shortly.  The next is that I am linking up for the Very First Time to Miss Mustard Seed's Blog for her Friday Furniture Party!   Who doesn't love a good piece of furniture???   Or, better yet, a bad piece of furniture turned good???   Be sure to click on the link and head on over to check out all the other goodies!

I am also participating in Frugalicious Friday over at Finding Fabulous.      -Make sure you stop there for a visit as well! Couldn't we all stand to find a little "fabulous"?  And, aren't I just the party animal today?!?

Now, I am *repurposing* this same, old, tired post to participate in Funky Junk Interiors Saturday Nite Special party.  You must go check this out!   Funky Junk Interiors always inspires me to think more *out of the box* and be unique with some furnishings.


This post is a teaser:   Sneak Preview of a few upcoming projects.....



Some days weeks months feel like all of my projects are in limbo or almost done or just started.   It's been a while since I've said "TaDa!   It's finished!"    Those days will come around again, I'm sure, but for now I will have to tease you with a few works in progress...

Actually, the below is still "pre" progress.  As in:   No progress has been made yet, but a plan has been formulated - Oh yes it has!!

This beauty stands on my front porch right now.   Notice it's dark hunter green color along with the ceramic, country little knob.   I will excuse you for a moment while you vomit.    Go ahead, I really won't be offended.




Feel better?  Okay then.   This is actually almost The Perfect Piece of Furniture for a part of my hallway/kitchen/dining room.  It really is!  And it's been right under my nose this whole time!   All it needs is a
little TLC. A makeover, if you will.

Edited to say:   A few gals have mentioned that they like the finish.   I have to say that I like the rustic-ness of it, but I am very done with the green (my entire inside of this home was dark hunter green when we purchased it) and I am planning to utilize this in my dining room area and need it to *fit in* a little better.





Umm,  and that's it.  That's where my story about this piece stops, because I have not actually done anything about it yet.  

Moving right along, we have another work in progress.    This fine little table was purchased from our local Mill Stores and has been unfinished for 10 years.  YES.  Ten Years.   I have no real excuse for this, but I think it's REALLY about time she sees her day in the sunshine.   




I've chosen a pretty off white color called Pop Corn Ball.   It's actually the same color as the trim in most of the downstairs in my home, but I really love it.  I don't want it to be TOO matchy matchy, so I will be distressing and adding a glaze.   I think.

It's in perfect shape and is basically boring and unoffensive, so I think if it has a neutral color, it could literally blend anywhere in the home.   Nice because I tend to have multiple personality decorating tendancies, and it will probably move around alot!

It does have one problem....



But I think a few coats of paint should cure it's ills and we will go from there..

Here she is after two coats.



I did a little light sanding/distressing to get the ball rolling, and right now I am ready to call it a day



Stay tuned for the big reveal!!!    Can't promise that it will be "any day now" but how about we shoot for "any week now" instead? 
Smiles and Hugs,
Joyce

  3. Ok, well the knob on the first piece is kinda dowdy, but I actually love the finish...it looks more blue on my screen, though.
    That other table is fab...and I have decorating schizo too, so my furniture need to be flexible.
    I'll be watching for the reveal :o)

  10. I totally understand that "I'm getting there phase." I have at least 10 like that on the go.

    And I've too discovered I have alot more than I give myself credit for. I love to beg borrow and steal from the rest of the house. Only problem is.. then I have an empty hole. Oh well. Guess it's time to hit another thrift then. Daaaarn. :)

    Thanks for linking up to the party!
