DIY projects and upcoming "how I did this"

In a very short time I've completed some DIY projects that I wrote quickly about.  Most of the post I just basically showed you how things had turned out.  I didn't show any real before pictures or explained what I did.

As we were in the midst of the rebuilding process I took on painting the entire interior walls of the house (except for the trim, crown molding and doors).  Plus, I was either out looking for my next great treasure or redoing my next great treasure I had found.  

Blogging took a back seat....
I never once in my wildest dreams would think anyone would be interested.


I guess because it comes natural and easy for me, my mind tends to think everyone can do this and does do this.  My husband is computer nerd (and I mean that in a very loving way...I married him so I think it's cute), I know my way around a computer.  But, not like he does...it comes easy and natural to him.  But, the things I do with furniture or crafts for him is like me trying to figure out how to get that server up and running for the 30 employees in the office of his clients. He can just pick up & do like I can just pick up a paint brush and paint. 

Ok my point is...some need guidance and I didn't realize that.  I am still being guided, learning new things every single day!  I've been emailed on several occasions asking how or what I did to get the result...

Some of my projects to date -

I aged our beam that runs through the middle of the house...


The sliding pantry door (a favorite of everyones to date) - 




The dressers that turned into the vanity for the girls bath and the master bath (the post and here)-

And then not to forget about the kitchen island - http://fernavenueblog.blogspot.com/2013/04/kitchen-island.html


I also redid the pantry, church pew, telephone chair, girls dresser, a cedar chest and side table for the common area, jewelry armoire, no sew curtains and headboard for the master bedroom, bookcase & armoire for the playroom.

I've been a busy girl over the last 4 or 5 months.  I'd like to start providing additional information for any of the projects I've completed.  I will start with the sliding pantry door with a complete before and after photos and what went into the process.

If there is any of the above listed projects that you'd like to know more about, let me know and I will get to it asap!


I hope everyone is having a fantastic day :)
