I cannot tell you how excited I am to be joining the wonderful world of blogging!! I have been so inspired in parenting, crafting, decorating, cooking and my walk with God through the little window a blog allows us into other's lives. I do not intend to journal or blog about daily activities and life in our home. I feel that trying to record it all would take away from those sweet little everyday moments that I want to cherish and "live in". :) I DO want a place to share some of our favorite recipes and the many craft and home renovation and furniture projects that my husband and I enjoy. I hope to connect with some of you fellow crafters out there and to inspire you as I am inspired. :)
The projects you see in the coming days and months may be current or previous projects.... For the first, I decided to share my rocker redo from last year....I purchased it from Craigslist for $10 or $15. After ripping off the old fabric, I sanded the wood, primed it and painted it with extra paint from our kitchen cabinet redo. I added a bit of mocha antiquing glaze which I rubbed on and wiped off. I used furniture tacks and a staple gun to attach fabric to the back of the chair and recovered the existing seat cushion with a little extra quilt batting stuffed in. The fabric was leftover from upholstering our dining chairs (which I scored for $2/yd at WalMart!).
