Victorious!

My night stands are refinished, and I am very pleased.  They look great. Now I can go buy all kinds of cheap, used furniture and make it what I want.  They won't be masterpieces but they'll be mine.  Hopefully I will continue to get better.  Gracie is doing great and getting so big.  Ryan is doing great and pushing through to the end of the semester.  He really needs a break, he is exhausted, and rightfully so.  I am serving in nursery and it is hard work.  Large chunks of the time is spent consoling crying children.  But, the older kids enjoy it and have a good time playing.  I am pretty tired by the time I get home, but I have fun too.  I hope you all are doing well.

fun to see your blog! I am so impressed with your nightstands. They look fantastic! I admire anyone that can finish a project like that - because I could never do that.

The refinishing looks great. I wish I could do things like that. Keep it up and I will get something for you to do on your next trip home. You are very talented, as I have told you.:}

Rachel, they look great. I can't believe you are the nursery leader. That is some tough stuff. What a good little momma you are. Love ya.

When Kacey was a baby I became obsessed with checking out "do it yourself" books from the library. That is where I learned how to refinish furniture and make my own soap. I also checked out a ghost story book and almost peed my pants because I started seeing "ghosts" out of the corner of my eye constantly. That book had to go back. Anyway, your baby is completely adorable. Your nightstands look awesome. Want to start a shabby chic furniture refinishing business with me? We could go to flea markets all over the world collecting our junk and turn it into fabulous stuff. My problem is that I am always so proud of myself that I can't bear the thought of selling it. Love ya.
