i finally started working on my $15 garage sale find. it's been sitting in the garage, collecting cobwebs for months now.
i was happy it has a finished back, which means it can serve as a room divider!
so last night while the older kids were at VBS i sanded off the pen marks,
spray primed it, and then troy and i carried it upstairs to it's new home. then after the kids went to bed i painted it "cashmere white" while i watched s.4 of true blood.
i'm waiting for the paint to dry right now so i can give it one last touch up,
and i can't explain how excited i am to start filling it up with all my
but while i wait, i've been sorting out my fabric stash. and realized i have at least 4 different 3-5 yard cuts of kona white, oops. being organized will definitely save me some $. at least my solids look pretty now!
the cabinet fits the space perfectly, and matches my $12 garage sale bookshelf, which also serves as a faux wall. it's low enough that i can still keep an eye on the kids while they play or watch tv, but keeps my clutter from being visible from the couch. win win!
i am testing another pattern for amy's fall line - more sewing with knits! it really makes me want to figure out nana's serger. i haven't had the patience to sit down and mess with it. plus it's like, a bajillion years old, i'm sure it needs serviced and cleaned. so it sits for now. and i'll share pics of the project as soon as it's available!
speaking of projects - my moda fabrics came for my bakeshop project! eep! can't wait to get started! we have a KCMQG picnic on sunday, i'm hoping to sneak away to it. but we have 2 extra boys staying with us this weekend, so we'll see. the kids are all asleep in a big pile in the living room right now, so sweet. :) have a great weekend!
