facebook, frog legs and furniture....



yes...that is what my day has consisted of!!! lol i couldn't think of a name for this piece so i just decided to call it that because that's pretty much what i have done while working on it... :)

you guessed it "garage sale!" uhm...this little thing was naked as could be when i got it.....not sure if you can see the pen and crayon markings all over it. i thought it looked pretty sad :( well... i knew i could do SOMETHING with it..!?!? just wasn't too sure what and now that's it's finished i'm having a hard time even thinking about letting it go :/ it matches my bedroom furniture...so...I WANT TO KEEP IT.....but i CAN'T!!!!!!!! i'm starting to think i should have named my blog "depressing departure" or "temptation torture"...lol because i want to keep everything that i flip!! ugh!

gracefully green...




so.... another garage sale treasure!!! for some reason i get a little excited about some of these finds more than others. well anyway.....as you can see this sweet little thing needed some help and just painting it solid green wasn't enough. so i added a little black and white elegance to it...and for those of you who know me.... this is sooo not my style but i love it! it's not my usual "rustic redo" ...can you believe...no distressing involved?!?!
*if you happen to love it too well you can be the proud owner..for a small fee that is!!! just let me know!

rocky baby...



nope...no babies to rock here! just an ugly green rocker that i picked up at a garage sale a few months ago that desperately need some TLC! i took it from "gross green" to "raging red!!!" just a simple flip that is much more pleasing to the eye and now we can enjoy on our back porch!

oh and by the way i used to sing a silly little song called "rocky baby" to my sweet babies and now i sing it to my little sweeties at school :)
