It’s been a busy week so far, so this is just a quick note to say I’ll have a full post for you later in the week. What’s been keeping me so busy you ask? Well, I wish I could report something exciting, but I’m afraid it’s a totally unglamorous reason…..Tax Season. I have been busy getting stuff together for two personal and two corporate tax returns for our accountants. Fun times indeed. But there is light at the end of this paperwork-filled tunnel, and I’ll be back very soon with a Before and After (who doesn’t love those?!).
It’s of a little DIY refinishing job I did on a console in our entryway. It is what keeps us (or attempts to keep us) organized….the central spot for kids hats, mittens and shoes, spare change, pens, wallets, receipts, blackberry’s, and more! To whet your appetite, here is the before shot:
A piece I scooped up from my favorite source, Craigslist! It is a very solid old walnut sideboard (used to have a hutch on top) with lot’s of space for all of our crap things . However, me and that orangey-brown didn’t get along so well, and I wasn’t too keen on the hardware either. But nothing a little paint couldn’t fix! In the interest of honesty, however, this piece sat (and was used) in our entry for months before I finally got around to painting it (a sad but common story in our house). BUT, it’s finally done and ready to show its new look….
Check back soon for the reveal!
