Home Office Make-Over

I have been putting off the need to makeover my home-office for quite sometime. Honestly this project was on the very bottom of my to-do-list. But after careful consideration I came to the following conclusions. I CAN'T TAKE IT ANY MORE, and somethings gotta give. My budget for this makeover is skinny, but I'm sure you already knew that. In fact, it's so skinny, it's almost none existent. Oh well, a girl's gotta do, what a girl's gotta do. Shall we carry on.....

Yikes, Ugh, OMG, can you believe that this is my office? I can't! 

My office is at the top of the stairs, and to the right. I really like where it's located, because I can  see the foyer, living room dining room, front and back yard. It's a great spot, but it needs a face-lift.

As I said earlier my budget is very, very skinny, so I will be reusing several, if not all of the existing pieces in the space.  Did you notice my make-ship desk? She's showing a lot of leg. I think I may  have to buy her a new dress. ha, ha, ha! Pictured below are some of the items that will be staying in the room. 



I have just the thing to breathe new life into this boring bookcase. Take a wild guess!

This file cabinet has seen better days, I can't pitch it so I'll have to fix it.

To date, I have spent $8.96 on the office make-over. The money was used to purchase this shadeless lamp from Goodwill. I actually like the lamp and I think it will look quite stunning ,once I find the perfect shade.  

Did I mention that red is one of my favorite colors?  This chair is a keeper!

What does a ballerina have to do with making over an office? I'm not telling, it's a secret.

Don't even think about it, THE MONKEY STAYS!
Come back next week for my office reveal. You are going to be amazed at how great it turned out!

Bar Stool Makeover

Hi all, this week I have another makeover. Last week's post was a chair makeover, this week it's bar stools. Here's a little history of how I acquired the bar stools. I have a friend named John who owns a thrift store. One day, while shopping in his store I purchased a beautiful 1920's sleigh bed. As I was leaving John informed me that he had a gift for me, since I purchased the bed. My response was, "for little ole me". As he scurried to the back of the store I WAS SO EXCITED and I couldn't wait to see what the gift was. When I saw the bar stools I was SPEECHLESS!!!!!! They were WICKED NASTY! But how could I resist them, they were a gift with purchase (free). And besides they had  great potential. I brought the stools home and got busy. First, they had to be disassembled. Next, I scrubbed and scrubbed and scrubbed, so much so I was dizzE (dizzy). lol! I was in such a state of shock, I forgot to take a picture of the seat cushions. Trust me, you don't …

This too shall pass

Hi everyone, 

It has been quite some time since my last post. Two years and four months to be exact, but who's counting. I am posting today to encourage/motivate you. Things are changing so rapidly in our society, and the coronavirus pandemic has most of us on edge. Some of us have never experienced anything of this magnitude, and the thought of illness, losing our jobs/everything we have worked for, and being isolated from family and friends can be quite scary, but be encouraged.

My prayer is that all will be well with you and yours. And that you will be intentional and live on purpose in the days and weeks ahead. Rest assured that this, too, shall pass!

Chat soon...

Stuck inside, My Master Bedroom Makeover

Hello everyone,

As I write this post, I am seated at my desk, looking out the window. The view is fantastic because I have the best apartment in the complex, in my opinion! Every day I get to look out at the picturesque panoramic views of the golf course. But, the best part is watching the sun dance on the rippling water in the pond and the ducks taking their daily stroll. 

Today, like most, the workers are busy readying the facility in anticipation of the course reopening. They are preparing for the once steady stream of golfers who frequented the trail, before social distancing. 

I love this quote by Benjamin Franklin 
"Don't put off until tomorrow what you can do today. 
I couldn't agree with him more. 

I said all of that to say, it's time to put it in high gear. Instead of being bored, aggravated, complacent, and down-right mad, I choose to make the most of an unpleasant situation.

Today's post is all about getting things done now, and the steps I am taking to make i…
