I decided to take a little venture into a new hobby because ya know being a full time Mom, house keeper-upper, errand runner and the like just wasn't keeping me busy enough.
I have my B to thank for this new idea....my new hobby is buying, fixing up, painting and re-selling furniture!! It is the perfect hobby for this time of the year because Cullen can be outside with me in a well ventilated area and he is plenty entertained. He has even taken up painting himself! Every time he sees a paint brush now he grabs it and "paints" anything and everything, it's so cute. Anyway, our street is not busy with traffic but there is a lot of new construction by us which means lots of big trucks driving by at all hours of the day so Cullen can hang out in his pack-n-play, wagon or stroller and watch all the trucks go by...while playing with his own trucks. We usually only head out for an hour or so and then I go back out anytime he naps so everything has worked out great so far.
Here are my first two projects....
and guess what....it already SOLD!!
I don't have a picture of the top of this big hutch but I'm sure you'll get the idea
i attempted to stage the piece just for fun and extra pizzaz!
i was quite pleased with how it turned out! shabby chic all the way! i told B if our house had shabby chic decor i would want to keep this.
And there ya have it my first projects! I just listed the big piece for sale.
I found some more fun items yesterday so we'll be spending the day outside again....actually, we're heading out there in 5 ;)
Hope ya'll are doing well!
p.s. winner will be drawn tomorrow for the earth's best giveaway and a new giveaway will be posted on thursday!
