Happy Birthday to u...........

This post is probably more for me than anyone else. Although she will never read it i just wanted to say Happy Birthday to someone who has been with me for 10 faithful years. All of her little life. I helped birth her, took care of her mother and brothers and sisters. She's been a dear friend, always there for me and she never ceases to show me love despite my many imperfections and short comings. Happy Birthday Pasha Gurl!

Happy Birthday to u aswell P.J...............I heart the both of u so much!

Im in love wit dis table................


Ok, i confess, the headboard isnt ALL ive been up to. Inbetween staples ive managed to finish painting the new coffee table. OMG(said in my best "valleygirl" voice), im so happy with it, i think im in love, of course no offense to Mr. Romantic, lol. Ive declared this "My Last Coffee table". I dont know about anyone else, but when i paint a piece, especially one this intricate, i bond with the piece, with each stroke of my brush the table and i become one............Alright, i know that sounded weird, lol, but i think yall know what i mean. Enjoy the pics and be sure to let me know what cha think............toodles, Bonnie

You can see the table in its "before" state  here. But why would ya wanna? It looks sooooo much better now, lol!

Living room update

Transformation Thursday


Its Tuesday again, lol. Everyone join me at Kristin's


Hi all, Bonnie here, and look what ive been up to..........

This is where we started from.................

Im almost certain that i'll be painting this table white......

Im oh so tired!  Ive been working on too many projects at once. Hubby and i just finished a headboard which i hope to get started upholstering soon. Im doing it in a white shabby chic matelasse. .......but more on that later, this is supposed to be an update on the living room. I finished painting about a month ago, i still have a few projects in here, like painting the new coffee table and some new slipcovers, those are in the works......We put the new drapes up today, and im just beside myself with loving how they look, i got such a bargain on the fabric that was used to make them, $15, Penny hemmed them up really nice.........also got a great bargain on the curtain rod aswell. Hope all of my fellow bloggers enjoy the before and afters.............toodles

All this material for the drapes was purchased off Craigslist for a mere $15. Enuff for two drape panels and some left to make pillows. Penny fixed someone elses attempt at crudely making drapes, lol.
