This is a photo I just took of the old twin head and foot boards my brother recently gave me. He found them in the crawl space upstairs in this old hosue we live in. He just bought it last July, and the house was built in 1890. Cool Huh?

He also gave me a stack of old windows he found up there

Here is my rose. I have a woodburning set and used it, then painted the rose with latex paints I get in Paint Pods from my local Ace Hardware.

Notice the shelf that my Paint Pod is sitting on? It is destined for a work over and some fabulous Milk Paint!

I have a list of projects on top of these so I have decided to start b ordering the samples of Milk Paint to at least get my feet wet. Sitting here with projects on the list and no paint doesn’t work well for me!

To date, I have a set of dining room chairs to refurbish for our house, the windows, the bed, the shelf above, and I also have a large mirror where the glass in it is messed up so despite the fact that it goes with my bedroom set, I want to paint it, distress, and turn the mirror into a chalk board, with…you guessed it…Chalkboard paint! I just picked up an older telephone table that I have plans for, and awhile back I picked up a piano bench which is also destined for a make over.

Just moved to an old Historic town in Oregon, to be closer to my elderly parents. Sharing a house with my brother that was built in 1890. I have two German Shepherds that love to walk, romp and play, swim and anything else as long as it is with me. My interests are in home decor, gardening, and remaking furniture by repairing, painting and breathing new life into it. Trying to learn all I can about blogging too!
