Here are a few projects I've worked on in the past 2 to 3 weeks.

This chair was a garage sale find years ago.  I painted it an aqua green color that matched a vintagey fabric I had.  Then I painted it brown and covered it with a lovely Anna Maria Horner fabric.  Still love the fabric but it had gotten a little dirty (can not imagine how THAT happened) and I'm rather over brown for now.  All things white for this girl!!!  So now we shall see how long this makeover lasts!!

chair was a garage sale find this summer.  A coat of white paint and we think it makes a fun addition to this little nook. 

Another garage sale find!!  It was a maroon color that I really didn't like.  For the past year it has been taking up space in a storage room off the back of the house.  When the pool came down and we needed to store it in there it was time for a good 'house cleaning' of the storage room.  So out this came and it got a coat of white paint too!!  Eventually we hope to put it in Big Sister's room (when her room ever gets finished!) but for now I managed to squeeze it in the living room and it holds the keyboard for now.

This was Travis' dresser when he was a boy.  He somehow knew then that his wife would like the beat up, old look in furniture, and he must have already liked it too, cause he saw some furniture at a store with hammer marks in it and decided to do the same with his!!  His Mom was less than pleased with him at the time:)  I painted it black years ago but since everything else has been getting bathed with white it was time for this piece to find some white too.

Same for this end table that has been in my living room for several years.  Time to go white.

This garage sale find bowl was brown till recently.  It wanted to fit in too!!

This shirt/dress was made for little Vivian Miette.  Can't wait to see a picture of her in it, I hear it fits her now!!

Ok that's it for now!  I've got more stuff to share but my hubby just got home from a business trip and it's is after 11.  Time to shut down the computer:)  Toodle-oo!

As always, I'm impressed. I don't see how in the world you do it all. I haven't touched my house in two months, literally. I'm even blank about anything I would want to redo, besides building a garage or bathroom remodel. Looks impressive, Jill. I'll stick with brown though, which hides the dirt a little longer! :)

I really like all the white. "Wash me and I shall be whiter than snow." How white would that be? Our finite minds probably can't fathom anything whiter than snow.

Love the white too but it would never last around here with three dirty boys. You've been one busy Momma!
