I have not been able to write in a week! Either I have not had time to sit down at the computer to write a post or when I do sit down, my brain shuts off and I can't think of anything to write. So this post is a short and sweet update about my week.
With it being the last week of school before the Thanksgiving break, the kids were a little antsy and excited about the break. High school students seem to get more immature the closer a holiday gets. I came home exhausted everyday and I didn't get much furniture work done but there was a little progress.
I decided to start working on an amazing waterfall front bedroom set that appears to be from the 1930s-1940s. It has this beautiful dresser, end table, and a twin size headboard/footboard. The dresser is almost finished and the end table and bed will be done soon after.
Also, there has been progress in my office. I am sad to say that the room had previously been our "junk room" and had a collection of random things without a home. So things have been assigned a new home and it is starting to look empty. Finding a desk was a little problem. I wanted a large work surface for crafts, sewing, and storage. I had been stalking Craigslist for months but nothing ever caught my eye. Finally, I got desperate and went to a few stores to shop for a new desk (gasp) which I just felt awful about. How could someone who refinishes furniture go buy a new desk? Tragic. But shopping new wasn't a success either. Then, the other day I found it...on Craigslist, of course. Now, I need to finish my curtains and get everything organized and in place. It will be finished this week so check back for my office reveal post.
I hope everyone has a wonderful week and Thanksgiving. Hopefully there will be several more posts between now and then.
