If you follow me on Instagram, you know my dog has become my "fifth child." Yep...that is what happens when you become an "empty nester." You take and post waaaay too many pictures of your animals and, of course, you celebrate their birthdays!
Wednesday we celebrated Cleo's 2nd birthday! If you go by "dog years," I officially have another teenager!
Our grandpuppy, Zoey, came to celebrate with us!
They LOVED the pup treats...the hats, not so much! Zoey wouldn't even wear one for a picture....party pooper!
And of course I have a TON of projects in the pipeline....three chairs to reupholster, five little dressers to repair and rehab and who knows how many other little projects piled in the back of the garage!
I did get a few pieces finished and ready to take to 410 Vintage...this shelf/desk is only one of many...but as usual I either forget to take before OR after pictures...in this case, the before.
Imagine honey oak...eeeck! A little KSTP treatment, and again, another lifetime of awesomeness!
I know I harp on it, but it bears repeating. The ugliest piece of furniture can be dolled up with a little paint!
I have four dressers lined up in the driveway ready to strip and paint IF the weather will cooperate. I think that is one of the biggest problems this time of the year. One day it is 70, the next we have a freeze warning. So I shuffle stuff around and work on what I can depending on the weather. Some days it is too cold or windy to paint, so I use those days to do repairs or work inside on upholstery projects. Then when it warms up a bit, I paint, but if it is too windy I can't spray paint. Curses!
Not going to complain because in few short months I will be gripping about the heat! And honestly, this is what I love about Arkansas...four seasons! I just wish it would make up it's mind from one day to the next!
