Yesterday, on Facebook, I posted this.

Pink & Gold Dipped Dresser

I hope everyone is having a great week!  Things here have been crazy!  When it rains, it pours and when one person wants a bedroom set painted or refinished, apparently so does everyone else.  I am so grateful for the work and I can't believe things have gotten so busy, so fast.  Having said that, my house is the messiest its been in months and we have family pictures tomorrow and I don't have a complete outfit.  EEK!

Today, I am featuring a dresser that I am in love with.  I know I have said that before but this one is for real.  Totally infatuated with this dresser.

Green & Brass End Tables

Every piece I makeover, I enjoy.  I have a passion for paints and stains and how some elbow grease, sometimes a lot of it, can totally transform an outdated piece.  If you have toured my house, you know I have a fondness for neutrals, soft blues and navy.  The majority of my clients are the same.  Whites, whites with glazing, creams, grays and walnut stains are popular color choices.  They are all beautiful choices but when I have a client come along that requests a bright color, I get a little extra giddy.  I love painting colors I don't normally use.

The client purchased some end tables I had available for custom color.

Driftwood Finish End Tables

And its Friday already.  Again.  When I was a teacher, Friday meant I had survived another week and summer vacation was that much closer.  Now, Friday means another week has flown by and somehow vanished before I knew it.

Here is what I have been working on this week.

The New Orleans Trip & Flip

I finally get to tell y'all about the New Orleans trip I took back in June.  It was so good to go back.  As much as I was ready to move back to Texas, New Orleans  has a special place in my heart and will always be one of my favorite places to visit.

Do y'all remember the story of my first customer?  If not, read about it here.  Nothing better than meeting friends on Craigslist!  Well, Regan is having a baby and asked me to help with the dresser for the nursery!  Of course I wanted to help!  The paint sprayer and sanders took their first flight.
