Oh i have been busy!

I have been getting my painting and sewing on. Did a few things this weekend and today!  First  i decided to paint our dresser in our bedroom to match our bed that i did a year ago. Been putting it off cause it was time consuming because the thing is so darn heavy i can't move it. So i just painted in the bedroom.
Then i decided to make a slipcover for an ottoman i really was not using. Added it to Carol( chair)
I went with the Zebra print for the ruffle because i had enough material already  and  Why not mix it up? I did make a little Zebra print petals around the pillow flower for a touch !

I have some Zebra print accessories around the house so ....
Then i was at Value Village and spotted this nightstand ! Had another coupon in my purse so for$ 30.00 i bought it. Did i need it? Nope but i like the key looking knobs and the wire on the doors. Of course i painted it black and added gold to it.
I had that table i made with the plant stand here but i took that apart and put the tray topper on the coffee table
Gosh i gotta quit going into the thrift stores. I have no room,, lol:) 


  1. WOW!!! Magnific!! Looks so luxurious and comfy, I would love to have that theme in my bedroom too. Great job!

  2. I love the nightstand. Your charis and ottoman are looking great. All the colors look wonderful.Thanks for sharing.

  3. You have been busy!! I paint my furniture in place too, much to my husbands dismay. Your changes look great!

  4. I absolutely love the black finish you did on the dresser. The night stand looks great, too , especially with the gold highlighting. What a gorgeous chair and ottoman... really nice fabrics with great pattern and color! Love your taste and style.


  5. Your decorating inspires me so. Every time I come over and visit, you always have something wonderful to see. I love the black, white, and red. I have the same in my kitchen, and I never get tired of looking at it. It is such a classic color combination.
