I am super new to this whole blog writing thing. I started the blog to journal our journey of the fire & the rebuilding process so that one day my girls would see how fortunate we are and how we came through so much stronger as a family... We united. Sometimes things happen in our lives that we have no idea why. I am the type that I dive in the middle of things, plant my feet with my heels dug deep in & I don't let go until it is complete. I have taken on the challenge to rebuild and put some different touches in our home. What I have learned & wouldn't have if we hadn't had the fire was I can design, create & decorate...see it lit something under me :) Pun intended!!
I have traveled many days (mostly on my own) to salvage stores, thrift stores, antique shops, tag/estate sales & auctions. I have found some pretty amazing deals.
What I realized as I showed off the big white armoire was...this is a big part of our rebuilding process. So...here are a few pieces that I need to refinish that I've picked up recently. Some things will be in our home, but some things I will refinish & sale.
|The detail on the table is beautiful hand carved|
|This is the table that is part of the side table. The table top isn't attached to the legs|
|And the chair (6 chairs)|
|Lighting was horrible but this is the hutch that goes with the set|
Mom & I are headed off to an auction tonight. Last time we didn't get home until 1:00 a.m and we were loaded to the top and more.
Hopefully I will have lots of pictures to bring back to you of more great pieces!!
I'd eventually like to do a get to know me post. Would you be interested? If so, what would you like to know about me?
With much love, peace & happiness
