I have several (okay maybe about a hundred) projects around the house that still need to be done.
I am slowly crossing things off that list but I thought I would share with y’all some of those projects… you know to put you on pins and needles waiting for the finally product. Or maybe its more just to hold me accountable for accomplishing them.
On of the items on my to do list is this dresser that has been in my family for FOREVER.
It was my dresser as a kid (passed down to me from family) and now its holds our 6 year olds clothes (in the family room because his room is full of Autism sensory aids).
I have big plans for this piece… I have even bought the new hardware already.
(that wall above it is getting a big make over soon too. SOOO excited for this space.)
Ignore the Christmas bedding because that’s when I took this picture.
I need to make us a headboard. I love the thick tuft headboards with the brads around the edge so that’s the style I am going for in a headboard.
I can’t wait to see it accomplished.
I have already added letters to the wall above where the headboard is going to go and pictures behind the lamps. I bought new lamps and changed out our night stands already so this wall has made a big transformation since this picture but it still has a long way to go.
*** UPDATE: Wall decor hung and lamps changed, go here to see it.
I did this makeover a few years ago and I still need to sand it down and antique it up a bit. I am also still trying to decide on whether or not to change out the gold knobs.
I bought this piece at Restore a few years ago and love how huge it is. It holds a lot of clothing and accessories.
This is the piece I am most excited about.
This hutch has been in my family for decades and was supposed to get passed down to me when I got married (10 years ago) but it was not until this last Fall.
I have all the paint and knobs to finish it but I have not had the time to actually do the work.
I bought BB Frosch Chalk Paint powder so I won’t have to sand it down anymore then where I am going to stain it.
The back part of the above piece.
*** Updated: This piece is done, see it here.
I painted this end table to match our living room (which was bright and fun, go here to see that living room) I am going to paint the table a white color and stain the top part and then change out the knobs to match our now (more neutral) living room.
**** UPDATE: This piece is done, go here to see it.
These book shelves are my favorite but they had been banged up and abused so much in our military moves that it needed some TLC.
I sanded the edges and made it look more classically roughed up then for real “banged up”.
I will have to show ya’ll the finished product soon.
I built our table a few months back (just in time for Thanksgiving).
When we moved here we had NO table so I had to get it done as fast as possible and so I didn’t finish the edges or get it sanded down on the top so I am going to have to finish this beauty here soon.
I will post a tutorial of what I did when it’s all done.
(also I HATE that chandelier in our rental… that bad boy NEEDS to go. Sah curity!!!!)
I bought these chairs off of Craigslist and filled all the holes in with wood putty but now I need to actually paint and stain them.
I’m thinking that I will paint the legs and the back piece (all but the fun middle insert) and then stain the rest.
I’m trying to decide if I want to leave this piece as is or sand it and stain it again.
The top part has a funky design on it that is pealing off so I think I may finish taking it off and then go from there.
(I’m also debating redoing that chair… decisions, decisions.)
That design is a little bit too Victorian for my taste.
This piece needs some TLC also, but I love the dark color that it is. I am probably just going to sand it down and fix the parts that are messed up and then re-stain it.
I bought these sewing tables for $5 a piece a few years ago and they keep falling to the bottom of my to-list so eventually I will sand them and paint them (and stain them) but for now this will just have to work.
I love this chair but it’s totally NOT a comfy chair for blogging in so it will find a new home and my desk will have to find a new chair.
These are just a few of the projects I have to get around too.
I have about 10 other large projects to get too as well but these ones are on the top of my to-do list.
The hutch comes first… what should I do next?
You can see the finished Hutch here.
