I hope you all have been doing well this Summer and enjoying yourselves. I sure have and wanted to share a little of what I've been up to.
I started a new medicine for my thyroid and have been feeling so good these last few days. I wish I would have known about this medication years ago! Anyone ever heard of Armour? Well, if you suffer with hypothyroidism like I do, talk to your DR. I have so much energy, no more body aches when I wake up in the morning, I actually feel like getting out of bed, the brain fog isn't as pronounced anymore and my heart palps have went away! I feel like a new woman!!!
Well, enough about my health...here's what I've been up to.
First, this is a twin bed that I bought from FB yardsale and decided to make into a bench from it with the hubby's help.
The idea jumped out at me as soon as I laid my eyes on it...so I knew I had to buy it!
Now didn't it turn out pretty?! I have such a hard time letting go of things I've made...I want to keep them all! Running out of room though...lol.
Then I saw this changing table...knew it could be something pretty without much work. I really was drawn to the knobs though and that's why I wanted it. I took off the changing station part and ta-daa, it became a perfect piece for an end table.
It's holding extra blankets in the drawers and baskets below. I found the little baskets at Home Goods...now I wish I would have bought 3. Oh well, maybe when I go visit again, they'll still have one left.
I bought these crowns from Salvaged to Sassy at her shop and painted them.
I love how they turned out and didn't want to just group them together in the usual way, so I added them to the top of some candle stands.
My kitchen counters are something I want to look pretty instead of having all of the electrical things like toasters and such, so I love adding functional pieces that are pink and pretty. Can you tell that I love plates? I have them everywhere!
I had this mirror downstairs, but it would not stay straight because of the garage door always being opened and closed. My bright idea came as I was making 20 trips up and down the stairs to hang it here...so glad I did!
I bought this old Home Interiors mirror for $5 and got my paint brush asap!
Of course I carried it around the house when I finished it and found this little spot....perfect!
I love how the detail is so soft and how everything looks better in white! To me anyways....
And did I say how I love mirrors? I used to go mad at how many mirrors my Mama had when I was growing up...now I am turning into her! I love how the light bounces around with them.
I found this lovely basket stand with white flowers...I knew I had to have this! Painted of course...
Doesn't it look better in white?!
Love it beside the mantle!
And last but not least..I had found this candleabra at Goodwill years ago. It looked like real silver but it evidently was just coated. I loved it all shined up, but as soon as I would get it clean, it would tarnish up again. So out came my paint brush yet once again!
It's the perfect little light when the power goes out. I love battery operated lights with little shades. Perfect for places you don't have a spot for real lamps like the backs of the potty. Ya know...you have to be able to see when you go potty at night.
Thanks for stopping in and taking the time to visit...now I'm off to do some more painting for a friend!
