Finished the china cabinet!  I chose a color called 'Old Violet' and I like how it turned out, not too purple but not just a grey-blue.  The pictures kinda make it look a little brighter than it actually is.  It's perfect and I love it!

My furniture finds to refinish and repurpose!!



I forgot to take before pictures of the buffet, probably because I was so excited to start working on it and it was sooooo ugly before I didn't really care to have a picture of it.  I snapped it up at a yard sale and thought it might work in my eat-in kitchen, I was right!!


So with my next project I decided to document the transformation!
 


This is a TV stand that I got about 7 years ago, it served us well as a stand for a few years and then it went unused for a few years...

Before:


After:
Emme already likes it!


It's going to look so cute by the backdoor, not to mention it'll be great to have a place to sit while we put on our shoes!

My next project:  (I'm thinking blue?!)

Emmeline in her Tutu

Joseph Dances at the NC State Fair!

video


Joseph surprised Joe with some dance moves at the State Fair, part was captured on video for our viewing pleasure. We think he learned his moves from Sid the Science Kid on PBS; he certainly did not learn them from either of his parents! Maybe he was just expressing through dance how excited he was to be a big brother...
