Fun and Love for Sadie

I'm sure this happens to everyone... You click on a friends facebook post, and you read a story that tugs on your heart... and you feel the need to help. THIS PARTICULAR STORY did that for me. Maybe it's because I have three children of my own... One of which, is a little blond girl close to Sadies age...But none of which, I think I could bare to live without. Maybe it's because I know the family, in a round-about sort-of way... Or maybe it's just because I can help...  I don't want this opportunity to pass me by.
So, I decided to donate this cute little antique side table to the AUCTION which, btw, sounds like it's going to be an awesome good time!
You can't even imagine all the insecurities I've had over this!
 Silly, I know.
So I wrote this saying on the chalkboard top, as a little pep talk for myself! :)

I painted it in ASCP Provence, with chalkboard paint on the top.
It's the first time I've used chalkboard paint, and my kids are really diggin it.
I imagine I'll be doing more of it!

The drawers are lined with fabric...

And no, it's not perfect...but it's beautiful! :)

If you can, come out to the auction, have some FUN and show some LOVE for SADIE!

I Think I MIGHT Have Too Much Furniture.....

This is where Mark raises his eyebrows and smiles.... "might?" O.K. I admit I have a problem. I collect furniture. HOWEVER, in my defense, I am also able to let it go... (sometimes;)

Here is a chair I did a while back... Sorry, no "before" photo. I primed and painted and distressed it. Finished with a satin polycrylic. The fabric is from Amy Butler's LOVE line. And I LOVE it.

FOR SALE $ 30.00   SOLD

Quilt is not included. Sorry. I made it out of a duvet cover I found at D.I. and a charm pack. "Central Park" by Kate Spain. I just thought it looked so cute with this chair!

Remember this dresser? You can see the original post HERE.

FOR SALE $ 115.00   SOLD.

I have a number of other things in the works right now.... Can't wait to show you!
