As January came to an end so did the month of finishing. I had (and still do) great plans for the month of blah. I technically only finished one project, my little orange sewing table. BUT I was very busy this past month!
Let’s start with the big one: I jump started wedding planning!! I now have a dress, photographer, caterer, venue, and have several small wedding crafts completed. Of course my wedding would have crafts. Poor Dan is probably tired of wedding talk; but Honey, we still have several months to go!
Don’t let that face fool you he is SUPER excited!
Typically January is my slow month both in the salvage and design worlds. Not this year! In salvage we have been CRAZY BUSY! Not only have I been selling everything that comes in, its been that time of the month that ALL of the displays needed to be changed. Three of my four were done and during Super Bowl game I finished my fourth! In the design world I have been doing floor plan after floor plan after floor plan! Its crazy but amazing!
Just SOME of the stuff I’m doing at work
The projects: After finishing the sewing table, I moved onto Dan’s 1920’s wood locker dresser (look for the finished post SOON). It was half finished since I had been working on it prior to January. I’ve got it completely stripped, paint colors picked out, supplies bought. But it started to rain so I couldn’t do the sanding or painting. I then, trying not to loose momentum, went back to stripping the BIG craftsman cabinet. Before I could get too far into it I needed to clean out the corner of clutter that it sat in. I borrowed the work truck for a Goodwill run and spent the rest of the night moving furniture around to make room the big closet. Now that corner looks great! Well it does in my mind 😉
Pardon the mess but EVERYBODY is working hard 😉
Throw in a few heart placemats for Dan and I, a new valentine wreath for my door, salvaged wood heart wreaths, and writing blogs that haven’t been posted BUT only need photos and I would say the month of finishing, which didn’t go as planned, still ended great! Plus it gives me something to do in February…
