Ode to Christa desk~

~ SOLD ~
When my sister told me she was in need of a nice girly desk I immediately showed her Christa's . She put in a custom order for me to find one like it and wanted Mike to pretty it up in the same finish. I was happy to oblige and find one I did! At the moment, we have furniture coming out the wazoo. It's scattered throughout my home and my garage is filled. I'm limited on space which means I'm limited with how well of pictures I can get as I was crammed to get a good angle!
Check out our other pieces and Ebook info on refinishing furniture!
 White finish, glazed and lightly distressed. Love what Mike did to the top. Rustic meets chic.


  
  
  
   Unfortunately, the only before shot is the one the seller text me. If only I would've gotten some other/better before pics. Mike certainly had his work cut out for him. It was missing a chunk out of one corner, missing molding was replaced by what appeared to be gum and was covered in some type of gummy-yuck-red-spray-varnish. It. Was. Gross! Have to say he pulled it off brilliantly! Thank you Christa for the inspiration :)
-l♥ve you Pidge. enjoy your desk!

Yay To 500 Giveaway!!! and a ...whole lotta other}

If you've followed along with us since the beginning you will know that reaching 500 followers is kind of a big deal for us. We were stagnant for... a while. We are pretty laid back over here and tend to go at our own pace, which can be a snail's pace at time's. I've gone back and forth on where I want this blog to go. Furniture only? Get personal? Yes. No. Yes. No.

A while back I somewhat reluctantly started posting our pieces on linky parties and things starting taking root. In doing this, I've "met" fellow bloggers and furniture enthusiasts that I wouldn't have met otherwise. We have formed relationships with those of you out there in blogland and have been encouraged by many.

 If you haven't noticed, I am kinda sorta shy to the whole getting personal on a blog type thing. The getting personal thing kinda sorta scares me. Actually. It freaks me out to tell you the truth. Why? It's frightening to me, the thought of other's "knowing" me. Being able to judge me, see me. So why am I opening this window and letting you in? Well. Because it's time. 2011 was a year of change for us which I've come to learn isn't so bad. Two of those big changes was adding a baby to the mix and our new business venture with Christa. Both these changes have made our lives just that much better. I very hesitantly first posted about Ozzy here. I received so many nice emails and comments in response that I was glad to have shared my personals.  

I want to thank those of you for your kind words regarding our ebook being published. It means the world to Christa and us. Being that this project literally took hundreds of hours of work and preparation, we are relieved that it wasn't all for nought. Before Christa approached us on partnering for the book, we had given thought to posting how-to tutorials or to do an ebook on furniture refinishing. When it came down to it, because this is our livelihood and are always so busy, we didn't have the time to do what it would've taken for either so both were kept on the back burner and who knows if either would've ever happened. Because Christa is who she is, and does it so well, we have been able to share what we love through this book all the while supporting a family. That we have people out there supporting us and who appreciate what we have done is encouraging. 

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you.

I am truly looking forward to this new year. To new business ventures. To meeting new friends. To sharing new projects. To a new(er) blog. To change. Here's to getting personal and here's to 500 followers! :)
