I have doing a few projects around the house and wanted to share.
1. I repainted a gross dresser that we have had since we got married. I have always wanted to do something with it and I can't believe it took me so long. My good friend Juleen came over and helped me with the project. The furniture she had done is amazing so I was glad to have her expertise. I have another dresser in my room and can't wait to get started on that one.
The After - I painted and then distressed with some sanding and then added a stain.
2. We are doing a garden! I have never done it before and have no idea how things will turn out. Thanks to a sweet friend Fonnell I at least have a good start. We are doing the square foot garden approach and she is the master. We are doing 16 squares and three herbs pots. Blake loves checking on the seeds.
3. I finally pulled my sewing machine back out after a few months of not doing anything. I found this purse I wanted to make and my awesome friend Jessica said she would do it with me. I did a trial run by myself and then we got together and each made one. On the second time around I adjusted the pattern to make it bigger and it turned out pretty well. This project required a zipper so I was impressed we finished. Luckily Blake played well with her boys so we were able to work while the kids played. Thank goodness for on-line tutorials and good friends to help me do these projects. I could never come up with this stuff on my own.
