No Bon-bons and Mani/Pedi's for us!

Hi Y'all - This is Paula -

We are busy girls - sanding, painting, sanding, glazing and stepping back to critique our work.  No time for girly things!  Although a bon-bon would taste really good.
Where has the week gone? Today begins a brand new week with new possibilities.

By now I had hoped to share photos of what we found last weekend followed by photos of what we had done with each item. But that isn't going to happen. Our house is on the market and we've had two showings this week. Lots of scurrying to clean and tidy and then be away from home. On top of that our washer overflowed. Doesn't that sound
like fun? The floors in the laundry room and office area have been washed and rinsed
and Mr. Rooter is very nice!

I will show you what we have found and the progress we have made so far.  The CL pickins have been very slim this week. Maybe next week will pick up a bit. Round Top is bearing down on us and we have much to finish. We are having such fun though, even if we are a bit overwhelmed at times. =)

Pretty frame with eggdrop trim
This little eggdrop frame will be painted and glazed.

Tremeau found on CL

The tremeau was painted antique white and turquoise.
(Always forget those "before" photos.) 
We sprayed it with Heirloom White and will add some glazing
and a touch of distressing.

Top of hutch before
It has curves galore & spindles on the sides.

Bottom of hutch before.
Love the curvy top, bottom and legs.  How girlie is this?

Lots of sanding for this one, it had been well loved.  So far both the top and the bottom have gotten two coats of primer.  The back of the top unit will be painted Ice Cube Silver by Benjamin Moore.  It's one of my favorite light blues.

More to come!

What are you working on?
How are you going to make it your own?
What are you looking for?

My heart is yearning for a huge china cabinet or hutch to redo.  The search continues!
