Office Reveal


I posted about my office in April and it has taken me several weeks to complete it. I thought that I would have this project done in a jiffy NOT!!!!!! I could tell you about all the things that have happened since my last post, but I won't. So shall we begin?


This is how my office looked before he makeover. You can see the entire post here. Just in case you're wondering what happened, I am too. I have worked in this ho-hum space for several years in this condition, and believe it or not I use this space daily. What was I thinking? My budget was skinny so the first thing I did was shopped the house. I love this type of shopping, it's FREE!


After I had shopped the house, I still needed a lamp for my desk. So, I headed to the neighborhood Goodwill and unearthed this Asian inspired lamp for only $8.96. It didn't have a lampshade but that would be an easy fix. Now that all the shopping had been done ha! ha! ha!, it was time to get down to business.



I removed everything from the space except for the file cabinet, and I got busy!



First, I painted inside the bookcase and.....


The file cabinet and the hardware received a fresh coat of spray paint as well.


Then, I made an easy table skirt for the desk. Whew! Okay enough already. Are you ready for the reveal? Take it away...........

My office is comprised of thrift store finds, as well as gifts that were given to me through the years. I guess it's safe to say it's a sentimental space, and I really love it. The only things that were purchased for this space was the lamp, ($9) silver picture frame, ($9) and the wire basket covering the air-vent.($10) 
Enjoy the rest of the pics!









































Thanks for stopping by!

2 Your Home,

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...
