My First Post...

For my first post, I decided to do a collage display on the things I've been working on.  After Christmas was over, I went full throttle with my Spring cleaning, decor, and organizing my clutter!  We (my hubby and I) made a long list of our weekend projects.  That weekend we tackled THREE!  Okay fine, two and a half.  I'm still working on my two side tables from the picture above.  

The Tables:  I started with one table.  I stripped it and sanded it with the palm sander!  Now that part was fun!  I am trying an Earl Grey Tea stain that I found on another fellow bloggers site, The Frugal Farmhouse.  The blog has been deleted unfortunately.. So all I could see what what I was mixing together.. Not the process... hmm.. Well, to tell you the truth, this has been interesting. I have been messing with it for two days now and it's still not what I'm after!  Hopefully I'll figure out what my next move it.  Stay tuned for an update on that later this week :)

I hope you are all having a wonderful start to your week!  Happy Martin Luther King Day!!


  1. I love your projects. Everything you do is gorgeous!

  2. Aww.. Thanks Kristen! You're so sweet! And I love all your gorgeous fun projects as well!

  3. Hi Jennifer, nice to meet you! Came here via Miss Mustard Seed and thought I'd say hello. You did a great job with the side table, good luck with the staining project. I'm very much interested in homemade recipes for stains and paints also. Greetings from Sigge@MindingMyCottage
