Some of you may remember my pencil post bed I found at a thrift store for $17 last May. Many of you have emailed me wondering why I hadn't posted photos of it finished or what the status of the bed 'makeover was. Well, my husband set it up in our bonus room and tinkered with it for a month and got around to making a 'canopy' for it. Now it just needs to be refinished. But the story has a much better ending than I was thinking it was going to have. All this time, almost a year, I thought it was a full size and it was going to go in our spare bedroom, hence my procrastination on getting it done. Come to find out, after getting it all put together, it is a QUEEN! I think I am very quickly changing my mind and it is going in our room. We currently have a sleigh bed.
But it is either going to be sold, or it will go in the spare bedroom. What a joy I had to discover that I had a queen and not a full pencil post bed! Now to get busy refinishing the find of a life time!
I have been busy while away from my Blog for the last two months!!!!! I made some 'bandanna' ties and flag football flags for our missionaries:
Painted a bedroom that DESPERATELY needed it:
And I am vigilantly still trying to keep up with my quilting customers:
But one night I put myself in a much needed 'time-out' and cleaned up this mess in my sewing room:
So now it is a bit better:
My husband also put this up in my sewing room - a bulletin board with all my 'ideas' pinned up and the shelf above it used to reside in my daughters room and was hot pink.
I did mention in my last post - I know it was in January - sorry for that - had some family things that really needed my attention - that I would show you what was in my sewing basket. I have been working on a cross stitch for nigh unto two years now. And I do have it finished, I just can't show you the final project as it is for my mother and I don't want her to see it yet.....
Lastly - have most all of you have seen these cute 'pouting chairs' at Michaels? They are in the unfinished wood section. I bought one last summer with my 40% off coupon and also finally refinished it in blue. I am pretty happy with the way it turned out:
Hope everyone had a nice weekend and wonderful Easter. I know I did. Life is good, and even though I complain at times, I am glad I have the life I have. I am blessed!
I am a displaced early American born about 200 years too late! Actually, I do like my indoor bathroom facilities, but envy the simplicity and commonness that filled the days of the colonial women. Hard work, but they would and did find joy in their day!
