Another Chair Makeover

Remember this chair? Well I made a friend for it.

I got the chair on the left for five dollars from a place in Kansas City called Bella Patina--the poor thing had no seat! So of course My Honeypie fixed it up and I covered it and ta-da! Two "matching" chairs. You know how awesome I am at taking before pictures, so of course, I didn't get one of the chair. But you can't be five bucks!

Reading Room in Progress

I've been so busy taking pictures for Hints Photos and putting it on a different blog, that I haven't had a chance to update this blog. So I'm finally getting on it!

Welcome to our Reading Room!

Anyway, I want to share an awesome idea My Honeypie had.

See this picture? There is a stupid breaker box in the middle of everything. Unsightly.

My Honeypie saw this mirror at a yard sale:

And had the brilliant idea to use it for this:

mirror over breaker box

A ten dollar fix and no more nasty breaker box! He just hung it right up and we can take it down if we need to get into it. Brilliant!

and I painted our door my mom's favorite color!

Ever Done This?

Photo challenge! Some of you have probably already heard about my latest project--one that does not involve the house! I'll let you read about it here:

Oh, Hey

We are still here! We just don't have much to say in the way of our house--it's a little bit slow! but I did finally finish my bar stools that I bought a year ago. They were fiddy cents each so I swooped them. This is what they looked like before:

Ew. This is what they look like now!


Anyway, don't worry, I'll let you all know when we start being awesome again :)
